Belgium are the second team after Italy to qualify for the knockouts of Euro 2020, after claiming a hard fought 2-1 victory against Denmark, who offered a stiff resistance throughout the game and unlucky to leave the game without a point, in the second group B match today. Yousef Poulsen put the Danes ahead inside two minutes and maintained the lead throughout the first half. However, the ever present game changer Kevin De Bruyne‘s introduction after half time changed the whole complexion of the match in Belgium’s favour. De Bruyne, being as instrumental as ever assisted one for Thorgan Hazard and scored a brilliant goal himself to give Belgium the all important lead, which they maintained to claim the victory, enduring constant threats from Denmark late in the match.

Here are the player ratings of the closely contested match between Belgium and Denmark.

Had an instant impact after coming on, changing the complexion of the match. Assisted their first with a neat square pass through the heart of Danish defence and scored a beautiful volleyed shot from range to the near corner to give them the lead.
