Rob Page says that his Wales side will show no emotions against Denmark and admitted that the Denmark team was a very good outfit. Denmark went through one of the most grueling group campaigns in European Championship history. Their captain Christian Eriksen suffered cardiac arrest in their opening game and had to be resuscitated on the pitch. He was rushed to the hospital and had a defibrillator implant fitted in his body.
Denmark went on to lose their first game of Euro 2020 to Finland 1-0. They led for much of the second game against Belgium before Kevin De Bruyne came on and changed the complexion of the game with Belgium running out 2-1 winners. Denmark then dispatched Russia 4-1 in style with all the players contributing.
“We haven’t got time to praise ourselves too much, there’s a job in hand again on Saturday, a tough game and we’re looking forward to the challenge.” Wales manager Rob Page said. “Both aspects came together against Turkey, I thought we defended well and showed we’ve got a goal in us, we were a constant threat. We could have kept the ball a little bit better against Italy, and that’s being really picky because they’re a really good team but at times we’ve just got to trust in ourselves. Did we get the right people on the ball at times? Probably not so that’s an area we can work on.”
“Any opposing manager looks at our teamsheet and respects what we’re all about and the threat that we’ve got in the team,” he added. “We’ve done our homework on them already, we spent all day in the analysis room yesterday going over it and what we are up against is a very, very good outfit.”
