Denmark hopes to book its ticket to the 2022 World Cup in football, when it hosts Austria in the eighth round of the European qualifiers group F, while England seeks to consolidate its lead and move forward to the football wedding when it hosts Hungary in Group I.
Denmark, which tops its group with the full mark with 7 complete victories, will be on a date with direct qualification if it manages to win in its own home at the “Parken Stadium” over the fourth in the group with 10 points, or in the event of a tie and a loss or a draw for Scotland with the Faroe Islands.
Denmark leads before Tuesday’s meeting by 7 points from its runner-up Scotland, who is a guest of the Fifth Faroe Islands (4 points), in an easy match on paper.
