Denmark Follows Germany’s Path To World Cup 2022

Danish player Joahim Maehle’s only goal against Austria in the 53rd minute sealed Denmark’s victory over Austria in the 8th match of Group F phase of the UEFA World Cup qualifying zone on Wednesday. Denmark’s 1-0 win over Austria was enough for Team Dynamite to earn a ticket to the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar. Denmark, thus became the 2nd country after Germany to qualify for the 2022 World Cup finals from the qualification path.

Denmark’s additional three points from the victory over Austria made it impossible for Denmark’s points collection to be overtaken or surpassed by other teams in Group F. Denmark’s current point collection is 24. Meanwhile, the highest collection of points for other teams under Denmark, namely Scotland is 17. With two games remaining, Scotland is no longer possible to catch up, let alone surpass Denmark’s collection of points. Even though in the remaining two matches Scotland was able to win and Denmark suffered a defeat, Scotland’s maximum points are only 23.

Denmark’s performance in the UEFA Zone Group F World Cup qualifier is indeed very extraordinary. Denmark has never recorded a draw, let alone lose. Denmark swept all matches with a win. Even more great, the Danish goal has never conceded a single goal. This means Denmark kept a clean sheet in 8 matches.

Denmark’s score was quite “scary”. The total goals scored by the Danish players were 27 goals from 8 matches. Means Denmark scored 3,375 goals per game. Extraordinary. Denmark’s 1-0 win over Austria in the 8th match of the Group F phase was Denmark’s most minimalistic win. It was the same as when Denmark defeated the Faroe Islands in the 5th match of the Group F phase.

Apart from those two matches, Denmark has always won big over its opponents. We’ll see, in the first match of the Group F phase, Denmark beat Israel 2-0. In the 2nd match, Denmark shaved Moldova 8-0. While in the 3rd match, Denmark bombarded Austria four goals without reply. Then in the 4th game, Denmark beat Scotland 2-0. In the 6th match, Denmark again beat Israel. This time the score was quite striking, 5-0.

In the 7th match, Denmark again shaved Moldova. It’s just not up to 8-0, but halfway 4-0. Denmark, thus very worthy and worthy of getting a ticket, aka qualifying for the 2022 World Cup finals earlier and faster than other teams. Because Denmark’s performance is truly extraordinary.

Denmark’s extraordinary performance was not even able to be carried out by established European teams. Germany, which qualified first, was not able to record perfect results. Germany once lost to North Macedonia 1-2 in the 3rd match of Group J phase. Germany was also unable to keep a clean sheet.

Moreover, established European teams that have not yet confirmed themselves to qualify for the 2022 World Cup finals, such as Portugal, England, Italy, France, or Spain. They all don’t look perfect like Denmark, even to qualify for the 2022 World Cup finals, they still have to work hard until the final match. Portugal in Group A, have to compete with Serbia. Even Portugal’s current position is under Serbia, which is the leader of Group A.

Spain is even more critical. Spain, which is in Group B, is left behind from Sweden, which is the leader of Group B. The difference between Sweden and Spain is only two points. But if Sweden are able to win all the remaining matches, Spain will certainly fail to qualify automatically for the 2022 World Cup finals.

Euro 2020 champions Italy are no less critical. Currently, Italy is still the leader of Group C. But if in the remaining matches Italy slips, draws or loses, then Switzerland who is in 2nd position in Group C can take automatic tickets to the 2022 World Cup finals.

France in Group D is arguably safe enough to get a ticket to the 2022 UEFA World Cup finals. However, if you are not careful, an automatic ticket to the 2022 World Cup finals can be “snatched” by Ukraine, who is in 2nd place in Group D. Another well-established European country, the UK too. Their performance is far compared to Denmark and they have to work hard until the final match to be able to win tickets or qualify for the 2022 World Cup finals.

England, who are members of Group I, must compete with Poland for a ticket to the 2022 World Cup finals. Meanwhile, England is still the leader of Group I. But if in the remaining two matches England slips, Poland can take a ticket to the 2022 World Cup finals. When teams or established European countries still have to sweat and struggle to qualify for the 2022 World Cup finals, Denmark, like Germany, can now “sleep well”. Congratulations to Denmark and the fans.
