MCH Arena, in Hening, Denmark, will host the meeting involving the Danish national team and the national team of the Faroe Islands on Wednesday, October 7.
It is a friendly preparatory for Denmark to train their team aiming at the Euro 2020 dispute, which will be held next year. The start of the duel is scheduled for 13h (Brasília time).
This is the first date that FIFA (International Football Federation) has reserved for games between post-pandemic teams for real. In September there was a space for international meetings where, for example, duels from the League of Nations of Europe were held. In the period, however, there was no requirement for clubs to give up their athletes.
They could refuse to give up their players.
Now, they do not have this option, since the calendar includes games for the South American qualifiers for the World Cup in Qatar 2022 and also worth the last places at Euro 2020 with the playoffs.
Denmark secured its place in Euro2020 by taking second place in group D. It accumulated 16 points (four wins and four draws).
Only one less than Switzerland, which ended at the top of the leaderboard. It was placed in key B of the final stage.
The teams from Russia, Belgium and Finland will be opposed. The debut is scheduled for June 11 against the Finns.
The Danes moved up to League A of the League of Nations of Europe in the first edition of the tournament. In September they made their debut in the 2020/2021 edition of the tournament and failed seriously in the offensive sector. Acting at home against Belgium, they were beaten by 2 to 0.
They created only eight finishing opportunities.
Only one of them was on target. In the next match, again in their domains, they were 0-0 with England. This time, there were ten chances to finish, two on target.
Perhaps this immense difficulty in the offensive construction and finishing was the reason for choosing the fragile selection of the Faroe Islands as a rival to the only friendly scheduled for October.
It is a way of trying to give confidence to their attackers before the double round of games scheduled for November.
This time away from home, the Danes will face Iceland (11) and England (14).
The Faroe Islands team won the possible battle in the qualifiers for Euro 2020. It was not in the last position of its group, F. Equalized in the score with Malta (three points each), but took advantage in the direct confrontation. Thus, it finished in the fifth – penultimate – position of the key, that still had Spain (26 points), Sweden (21), Norway (17) and Romania (14).
Given the group’s technical gap, it was the most he could do. In the League of Nations of Europe, participant in League D, the Fourth Division, had a very good debut in the face of teams of his size.
In September, acting as principal, he again imposed himself on Malta scoring 3 to 2, in a game that had two turns.
Then, this time as a visitor, he scored 1-0 in Andorra.
Thus, he took the lead in group 1, which still has Latvia (two points), Malta (one) and Andorra (one) assuming favoritism to gain access to League C, the Third Division.
There will be duels next 10 against Latvia and 13 against Andorra, both at home.
