As for the United players within the Three Lions set-up, the Danish Red has been particularly impressed by Harry Maguire’s return from the injury that ended his United season.
“I’m a defender myself, so I’ve mainly looked at the defensive performances,” he explains. “I think since Maguire has arrived in Manchester, he’s been really impressive and I also can see how he controls the defence. It doesn’t come as a surprise to me that he’s been the main person in the defence for England since his injury.
“Shaw was left out in the first game, but I think he’s just been rock solid. I really appreciate that he is playing that left-back position because he really deserves it. It’s good for the synergy [at United] that he and Maguire are playing alongside each other too.”
As for Denmark, there are a couple of players that have surprised, beyond the Premier League names that British Reds will be aware of.
“In this tournament I would highlight a couple of Denmark players. Kasper Schmeichel is well known in the UK, and AC [Andreas Christensen] from Chelsea. I would say the biggest surprise has come from [Mikkel] Damsgaard, who is playing attacking midfield, or Joakim Maehle, who has been playing the left wing. I think they’ve been the biggest surprises from the Danish perspective.”
