International game time for young Bees as Denmark Under-21s beat Finland Under-21s

Mads Bech Sorensen and Jaakko Oksanen got game time in narrow affair

15 October 2019

Monday night saw three Brentford players involved in international match day squads as Denmark Under-21s managed a 1-0 away win over Finland Under-21s to put themselves top of Group 8 in qualifying for the UEFA European Under-21 Championships.

With Mads Bech Sorensen once again playing the full 90 minutes for the Danes, Brentford B’s Mads Roerslev was an unused substitute, whilst Jaakko Oksanen was a 74th minute substitute for Finland.

Japhet Sery Larsen, also from Brentford B, has been a part of the Denmark under-21 squad but did not feature in either of the two international matches over the past week.

Mads Bech Sorensen was able to get a full match under his belt having stepped up his return from injury over the past couple of weeks, and the Danes won the game when Nikolas Nartey found the all-important goal as he turned the ball home after just 12 minutes.

It was a match that Peter Vindahl-Jensen’s side largely dominated in terms of chances with four attempts on target compared to Finland’s zero.

Having played three matches, Denmark have put themselves in a strong position as they sit on nine points and top of the group, as Finland trail in second on seven points having played four matches.
