Danes agree stop-gap deal with players in time to face rampant Welsh in Nations League

September 7 – The Danish FA has reached a short-term agreement with the country’s players’ union to ensure that the regular senior team can return for the Nations League game against Wales on Sunday.

Earlier this week, the Danes were forced into fielding  a scratch side of lower-league part-timers because of a bitter ongoing pay dispute and went down  3-0 to Slovakia in a friendly
Although no new agreement has been reached a joint statement said a deal was in place for the match against Wales in Aarhus to take place with the regular senior squad.

The Danes are drawn against the Republic of Ireland and Wales in their second tier group of the Nations League. Wales opened the campaign with an impressive 4-1 dismantling of the southern Irish.

Danish FA president Jesper Moller said: “We can play the important Nations League match with the right national team and again focus on the sport.”

Director Mads Oland added: “The agreement is a step in the right direction, and the national team players are happy that they can now focus on the match against Wales on Sunday.”
