In the opening match of the Group 4 of the 2018–19 UEFA Nations League B,Denmark shall host Wales at the Ceres Park in Aarhus amid a grave crisis that struck the national team after the entire Denmark World Cup squad rejected to honor the international friendly fixtures due to an argument with the Danish Football Association (DBU).
The Danish Dynamite have suffered the World Cup round of 16 elimination by Croatia after a penalty shoot-out, but the real problems started after the tournament when the players refused to renounce their sponsorship deals with companies in direct competition with the national team sponsors. The dispute has left the Denmark Football Association with a very few options that include the attempt of canceling the match in Arhus or facing another disappointing result with a severely weakened roster.
Meanwhile, the Dragons are desperate to return to the major international competition following the World Cup qualifying failure, with Ryan Giggs anxiously hoping for another impressive performance of his team in his second competitive game on the bench following an astonishing 4-1 win over the Republic of Ireland back on Friday.In 2018, Wales played three friendly matches, clinching a stunning 6-0 win over China, after which they lost 1-0 to Uruguay and played out a 0-0 draw with Mexico.
Since there are no signs of the potential reconciliation between the Denmark star players and the DBU, it seems John Jensen will have to get on with is on the table, as he was the one to replace Age Hareide on the bench until further notice. As for the visitors, Giggs has opted to introduce a few highly-rated youngsters, including David Brooks of Bournemouth, Chris Mepham of Brentford, Harry Wilson of Derby Country, and Chelsea defensive midfielder Ethan Ampadu.
