Denmark will be in Qatar for the second time in a row at the FIFA World Cup Finals. As in the previous 7 World Cup qualifiers, it also beat Austria, thanks to a goal from former Genk player Joachim Mahle.
Denmark are doing this qualifying campaign for the first time in a long time without the spell of Christian Eriksen (who is still recovering from a heart attack at the European Championships). However, the Danes can put out a rare strong streak without him.
Based on the team that performed excellently in the European Championship (including against the Belgians), Austria won for the eighth time in a row. Shortly after the break, Delaney offered Joachim Mahle the only goal of the match.
This is the sixth time that the Danes have qualified for the World Cup. In Russia, they lost in the finals only 1/8 after a penalty shootout against later finalists Croatia.
