Henrik Dalsgaard in Denmark squad for Nations League double header

Defender facing games against Wales and Republic of Ireland this month

5 November 2018

Henrik Dalsgaard and Chris Mepham will go head-to-head later this month in a match which could go a long way to deciding the winner of Group B4 in the UEFA Nations League.

The two sides meet in Cardiff on Friday 16 November, kick-off 7.45pm, before The Danes return to Aarhus three days later to host the Republic of Ireland, also a 7.45pm kick-off. 

Following last month's 0-0 draw against Ireland in Dublin, Denmark are currently second in Group B4, trailing Wales by two points but with a game in hand. Victory for Henrik and Denmark at the Cardiff City Stadium would ensure top spot, promotion to League A, and a place in the Euro 2020 qualification Play-Offs with a game to spare. 

A draw would still leave top spot in Denmark's hands, should they beat Ireland in their final group game, but victory for Wales would see The Red Dragons clinch the Group B4 honours.  

With Henrik in the team, Denmark have only lost once in 90 minutes in 17 internationals,winning nine and drawing the other seven. At club level this term, Henrik has played every minute of our 16 Sky Bet Championship fixtures, scoring once.
