Henrik and Denmark held in Georgia

A round-up of the action for our internationals on Sunday

9 September 2019

Henrik Dalsgaard returned to the starting line-up as Denmark were held to a goalless Euro 2020 Qualifying draw by Georgia in Tbilisi last night.

After sitting out their convincing win in Gibraltar on Thursday, Henrik returned to Åge Hareide’s starting XI to win his 22nd cap, and 18th while with The Bees. Denmark had the better of the game without putting the hosts under too much sustained pressure. Christian Gytkjaer could have won it late on for Denmark but smashed his shot against the crossbar. The draw leaves Denmark second in Group D, two points behind leaders Ireland with three matches left to play.

There was no action for Pontus Jansson last night as Sweden played out a 1-1 draw at home to Scandinavian neighbours Norway in Stockholm. Fulham midfielder Stefan Johansen opened the scoring for the visitors on the stroke of half-time. Emil Forsberg then levelled on the hour as Sweden remain second in Group F, seven points behind leaders Spain and a point clear of Romania in third.
