Gareth Bale revealed that he remains unfazed by the underdog tag that Wales has at Euro 2020. Denmark has turned into the darling of the tournament following Christian Eriksen’s cardiac arrest. The midfielder has been discharged from the hospital and is now recovering at home. Denmark was backed by almost the whole of Europe in their final group game where they beat Russia 4-1.
“That’s normal anyway,” Gareth Bale said about their underdog tag at euro 2020. ”We’re always the underdogs and used to that tag. It doesn’t make a difference to us.”
“Obviously we understand the situation that happened with them and we’ve sent all our best wishes to Christian,” he added. “What a great job the Denmark team did with that. But come game day tomorrow it will be just us and them on the pitch, and hopefully we can put a great performance in and get the job done.”
Denmark has got the better of wales in the recent past. they won both their nation league ties against Wales home and away. Wales reached the semi-finals of the last Euros beating Belgium in the quarterfinals before losing to eventual winners Portugal.
“It’s another big challenge. We know Denmark is a very good team, very well organized and have some very good players.” bale continued. “So they won’t be underestimated by us. We’ll be ready to go come kick-off and put in a big performance.”
