‘Completely crazy’

Since Eriksson suffered a cardiac arrest earlier in the game, Denmark has won the support of many neutral players. They played in Copenhagen for the first time in the game, but they can still count on strong support.

Thousands of Danes came to the Dutch capital, and the number of people at the Johan Cruyff Arena surpassed the Welsh.

Wales had a series of early offenses and the talisman Gareth Bale almost gave them an early lead and almost missed the target when shooting from long range.

Kasper Hjulmand’s team also did not have their injured forward Yussuf Poulsen, who scored a goal in a 2-1 victory over Belgium and a 4-1 victory over Russia, which put them into the round of 16.

However, as a sign of team unity, the player joined his team to sing the national anthem on the court before kick-off, standing side by side with the bench players and the coaching staff.

Dolberg made up for Poulsen’s absence, and after Wales made a stronger start, the Danish team took the lead.

Since then, Denmark has hardly looked back, dominating the ball and opportunity, because Wales failed to reproduce the famous fighting spirit that reached the semi-finals in France five years ago.

“It’s totally crazy. I don’t actually know how I feel. It’s totally crazy. It’s surreal. For me, everything starts from here, and it’s really like playing here again in this case. It’s crazy,” Dolberg, who had played for Ajax, told Danish broadcaster DR.

At the same time, Welsh captain Bell said his players were “frustrated and angry, but I would rather we go out like kicking and screaming instead of firing and doing nothing”.

“We missed an opportunity, but one thing we can’t go wrong is the hard work the boys showed. I am still proud of them.”
