CARDIFF, United Kingdom: Denmark climbed to the top of the Nation on Friday with a 2-1 victory over Wales in Cardiff.
Victory saw Denmark at the top of group B4 and secured promotion to league A.
Nicolai Jorgensen finished an excellent counterattack that he visited three minutes before the half-time at the Cardiff City Stadium before the Martine Braithvaite 88-minute strike doubled the lead of Danes.
There was still time for Wales to withdraw one of Gareth Bale's first international goals, but for five minutes of interruptions, it turned out to be insufficient for Ryan Giggs's men to find an equilibrium.
"The most important thing was the result for us," Bale told Ski Sports.
"Obviously we wanted to do well, which I thought we worked in parts, but in the end, we were disappointed that we did not conquer the group.
"They (Denmark) are a good team, they had a great world championship and they are very high ranked, so we know they are a good team."
Chief Welsh Giggs added: "I am proud of the guys because they continued to go to the end and they excited me and excited the audience. We have to learn the other side – the discipline in which Denmark is so good."
Denmark, which has reached the last 16 of this year's World Cup in Russia, is now guaranteed to participate in the qualifications for Euro 2020 if they fail to reach the finals during the regular qualification qualification.
Christian Eriksen – who scored both goals when Daniel defeated Vales in September – was almost targeted again in the third minute, when he got too much room before he was soon fired over a 20 meter bar.
Wales almost took over the lead after nine minutes, when Paul Dummett found Bale 25 meters in his first competition for the country.
But Danish goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, the son of Gigg's former Manchester United man, has managed to give up trying to star Real Madrid.
Gunter is the same record
Dummet's evening came to an unlucky end when he went into injury, but his exit allowed deputy Chris Gunter to equal the goalkeeper Neville Southall's record in Vales of 92 caps.
A minute later, the open game was seen by Denmark at the helm.
Wales's "Tom Lavrence" lost possession about 25 meters from the goal of Denmark.
Thomas Delanei sent Iussuf Poulsen right down the right side and Jorgensen made a great run down the middle of the pitch and … Vels Vaine Hennessei fired crusoe past the defense.
Both teams created chances in the second half, David Brooks approached Vales with a shot from the edge of the box before the defensive saw Poulsen shoot over the top of the cross from just inside the 76th minute.
Schmeichel, who saved his celebrated father, admired, made a great stop to prevent a 25-meter free kick from Bale that appeared to be set for the top corner.
It seemed that the Danes were suspicious when Braithvaite defeated Hennesse a powerful blow.
However, Bale, who ran 40 meters through the ball from Ashleigh Villiams, gave Wales 60 seconds later. – AFP
