Wales vs Denmark Player Ratings
Wales Player Ratings
Ward- 6/10- Conceded 4 goals in total and was left all at see by his weak defenders.
Roberts- 5.5/10- The right-back was forced off with an injury inside the first half and did not have much impact while on the pitch.
Mepham- 5.5/10- Crumpled under pressure and was all at sea while defending the numerous attacks from the Danish forwards.
Rodon- 6/10- At fault for Dolberg’s first goal when he let his man twist and turn before Dolberg struck his fierce shots.
Davies- 6/10- The left-back had a match to forget and most of the attacks in the second half came from his side, as he failed to perform his defensive duties.
Morrell- 6.5/10- Failed to get himself acclimatized with the pace of the game and was an absent figure in the middle of the park often gifting away easy possession.
Allen- 5.5/10- The experienced midfielder could not keep Denmark quiet as much as he would have liked. Failed to influence Wales’ attacking play as well.
Bale- 6/10- Another star of the Welsh team who had an unforgettable match, received a yellow card at the end when he lashed out in frustration.
Ramsey- 6/10- His creativity was not visible in this match, and Wales failed to replace him as they found it hard to force scoring opportunities.
James- 6.5/10- Tried to provide Wales the extra boost with his pace, and got a chance when he shot wide from just outside the box.
Moore- 6/10- Largely absent in the match, mainly because of the lack of service provided to him, was martialed well by the Danes.
Denmark Player Ratings –
Schmeichel- 7/10- The goalkeeper was largely untested in goal, but when called upon displayed his commanding presence over the penalty box.
Maehle- 8/10- Scored the 3rd goal to put the match beyond result to bed in the 88th minute of the match as Wales looked to make their way back.
Vestergaard- 7.5/10- A solid display in defence and manned the likes of Ramsey and Daniel James well, so much so that they were largely invisible during the game.
Kjaer- 7.5/10- A captain’s performance from the Danish hero, his physical presence meant that Wales striker Kevin Moore’s aerial ability was completely nullified.
Christensen- 7.5/10- Kept Gareth Bale quiet throughout the game and his distribution was top notch throughout the match, continues his good form in EURO 2020.
Stryger- 7.5/10- Came in as a replacement for Daniel Wass and was bundle of energy down the left flank for Denmark causing Wales a lot of trouble.
Hojbjerg- 7/10- Denmark’s midfield general had yet another great game controlling the pace of the game, and nipping out Wales’ attacks in the bud.
Delaney- 7/10- The midfielder had a good game before being substituted in the second half for a much needed breather.
Damsgaard- 8/10- Another sparkling display from the dynamite midfielder, laid on the ball for Dolberg for his first goal.
Dolberg- 9/10- An excellent performance from the striker scoring a brace. The first strike was simply because of his individual brilliance and the next one came from good fortune.
Braithwaite- 8.5/10- Grabbed a goal for himself at the dying minutes of the match and had a hand in Denmark’s second goal as well.
