Denmark beat Austria 2-1 in Vienna and topped Group A of the League of Nations, a key that also includes France and Croatia. The match was postponed at 1:30 due to a power outage at the Ernst Abel Stadium in the Austrian capital.
Tottenham midfielder Hogberg opened the scoring in the 27th minute of the first half, taking advantage of a cross pass from the right side and scoring the goal. In the second stage, Austria equalized and was about to turn around.
At 21, Gregorich pressed Schmeichel, Arnautovic stole the ball and played for Schlager to margar. Soon, Arnautovic himself dodged the Danish goalkeeper and finished with his left hand on the crossbar. Punishment came in the last minutes. At 38, Stryger made a good move down the left, cut to the middle and hit a nice shot: 2 to 1.
Denmark reached six points and leads the first group in the first league. Austria is in second place with three points. France and Croatia, who tied 1-1 on Monday, tied with one point each. On Friday, the Austrians receive the French, and Denmark will face the Croats in Parken in Copenhagen.
