Danish women end strike to play Croatia qualifier but pay dispute still not resolved

Danish women's team

October 20 – The Danish Football Association (DBU) says it has reached a “partial agreement” with the women’s national team over a long-running pay dispute, paving the way for the team to play the upcoming World Cup qualifier against Croatia on Tuesday.

The Danish players, beaten finalists in the recent European Championships, have been locked in negotiations for months and cancelled today’s planned qualifier against Sweden when they refused to report for training, an action that could see them expelled from the competition.

However in a statement, the DBU said it had reached an agreement with the players about the Croatia game and that negotiations on other outstanding issues would continue afterwards.
