Rasmus Højlund’s debut hat-trick secured a resounding victory for Denmark in the first game of Euro 2024 qualifiers.

Despite being labeled as the tournament’s “Dark Horses”, Denmark’s World Cup journey ended winless due to injuries and unfortunate circumstances, but Rasmus Højlund’s goal from Alexander Bah’s cross provided a glimmer of hope amidst the challenges.

Despite the odds in their favor, Euro ’92 champions Denmark were caught off guard by Finland’s Oliver Antman, who scored a composed goal with a well-executed pass from Teemu Pukki, leaving the home crowd at Parken stunned.

Denmark’s determination to secure back-to-back European Championships since 2004 was evident as they fought back against Finland, with Rasmus Højlund twice denied by goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky, but ultimately secured a hat-trick with a composed finish beyond Hradecky to earn a valuable three points.

Although Finland defended valiantly, Denmark’s dominance with over 15 attempts on goal justified their late winner and victory, putting them in a prime position to qualify for Euro 2024 and living up to their status as group favorites.
