Nations League: Why we defeated France – Denmark coach, Hjulmand


Denmark coach, Kasper Hjulmand has given a reason his team defeated France 2-1 in Friday’s UEFA Nations League tie.

Hjulmand said Denmark won against France because his players had the upper hand in the midfield against the host.

According to him, his team had prepared for the clash against France a long time ago.

Two goals from Andreas Cornelius ensured Denmark defeated France.

Karim Benzema did score for France at the Stade de France Stadium.

Speaking during his post-match press conference, Hjulmand said: “We are, above all, very happy and very proud of this fantastic performance here in Paris, and all the credit goes to the players.

“People will celebrate this victory in the streets in Denmark, and we are happy to be able to make the country happy. It’s a very big victory. We’d prepared for this match for a long time.

“We wanted to have the upper hand in midfield and not give up space to the French behind us. We had to change the game system and it’s great to see the players able to adapt.”

Denmark will now face Austria in their next game on Monday.
