Henrik Dalsgaard the saviour for Denmark

Catch up with the final night of international action for our players

27 March 2019

Henrik Dalsgaard couldn’t have timed his first international goal any better as Denmark staged a remarkable late recovery after being 3-0 down to Switzerland in Basel.

The hosts looked to be cantering to victory in their opening Euro 2020 qualifier thanks to goals from Remo Freuler, Granit Xhaka, and Breel Embolo. However, Mathias Jorgensen pulled one back with six minutes to go before Christian Gytkjær made it 3-2 at the end of normal time. And Henrik proved to be the hero in the third minute of injury-time, rising highest to nod home the most incredible of equalisers.

The goal was Henrik’s first in 20 appearances for this nation and means he has still lost just once in 90 minutes in Danish colours.

Saïd Benrahma also had an evening to remember as he earned his first Algeria cap in three-and-a-half years. The attacker was included from the start as The Desert Foxes took on Tunisia. Saïd played 75 minutesfor his nation, earning his second cap in total, as they won 1-0 thanks to a Baghdad Bounedjah penalty 20 minutes from time.

Ezri Konsa also featured last night as England’s Under-21s suffered a late defeat to Germany at The Vitality Stadium. The two sides traded first-half goals through Mahmoud Dahoud and Dominic Solanke as the Young Lions sought to extend their 18-game unbeaten run. However, unmarked Felix Uduokhai popped up with a scrappy injury-time goal to win it for the visitors. Ezri played the final 20 minute in Bournemouth to earn his sixth Under-21 cap.
