Denmark 2 – 0 Austria: Goals from Wind and Skov Olsen help Denmark hold on to top spot in Group A1

Denmark 2-0 Austria: Goals from Jonas Wind and Andreas Skov Olsen keep Danes top of their group, with Ralf Rangnick’s side dropping down to third after Croatia’s shock win in France

  • Jonas Wind notched a goal and an assist in Denmark’s 2-0 win against Austria
  • His 21st minute goal was followed up by Andreas Skov Olsen’s 37th minute strike
  • Denmark kept their position at the top of Group A1 as Austria drop to third spot
  • Croatia climbed to second after Luka Modric’s penalty helped beat France 1-0  

Jonas Wind scored one goal and made another as Denmark cruised to a 2-0 win over Austria in their Nations League Group A1 clash at Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium on Monday that leaves the Danes top of the group after four games.

The 23-year-old forward opened the scoring in the 21st minute and Andreas Skov Olsen netted the second with a cool side-footed finish after Wind found him in the box with a clever pass nine minutes before the break.

Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen received a raucous ovation when he came on in the second half a year and a day after collapsing on the Parken pitch due to a heart problem in a Euro 2020 group game against Finland.
