Qualifying for the World Cup in Europe took a curious turn when the goal posts were removed before a match between Switzerland and Lithuania because they were classified as incorrectly sized

All the heavyweight countries on the continent secured victories, although Spain left it late – more precisely in the second minute of stoppage time – to beat Georgia 2-1 after falling behind

Like Spain, France started their qualifying campaign with an unexpected draw at home, but came back on the track in the second game and scored a 2-0 win in Kazakhstan

Italy extended their unbeaten streak to 24 games with a 2-0 win in Bulgaria, and England scored a maximum of six points with a 2-0 win in Albania in the group game. Germany won two times in a row with a 1-0 Away win against Romania

In the meantime, Denmark became the youngest European team to use the World Cup qualifiers to draw attention to workers’ rights in Qatar in 2022. The players wore red T-shirts with the slogan “Football supports change” for the usual team photo, before they faced Moldova, which Denmark defeated 8-0

The Danish Football Association said the jerseys will be signed and auctioned to raise funds for projects with Amnesty International that help migrant workers in Qatar

It’s a big win The Danes are doing well hats off to the goalscorers Dolberg, Damsgaard, Stryger Larsen, Jensen, Skov and Ingvartsen Well played Danish dynamite
