Knudsen's Denmark Host Wales
Sunday, 9th Sep 2018 09:38
Blues left-back Jonas Knudsen could win his fifth full cap when Denmark take on Wales in their first UEFA Nations League match in Aarhus this evening (Sky Sports Main Event/Football from 4.30pm, KO 5pm).
A temporary agreement to the long-running contractual dispute between the players and the DBU, the Danish FA, was reached on Friday, the squad having refused to take part in Wednesday’s friendly in Slovakia.
Denmark fielded a team of amateur players in that game in order to avoid censure for failing to fulfil the fixture and were beaten 3-0.
Knudsen started the Danes' previous match, the World Cup round of 16 on-penalties defeat to eventual finalists Croatia.
Wales got their Nations League campaign off to a very strong start by beating the Republic of Ireland 4-1 in Cardiff on Thursday.

Rise and Fall by NormEmerges
Like my father, I was born and bred in Suffolk. He was a lifetime Ipswich Town supporter. But when I was a boy, back in the 1950s, like many small boys I followed clubs at the top of the old First Division.
Reflections on Relegation by TimS
I was walking through Kesgrave last Saturday afternoon around 4.35pm with my mind wandering. I could distinctly remember making the same walk from a local Tesco through Grange Farm back in the spring of 2002.
The History Boys by Tristan90
My first season following Town was 2002/03, just after relegation from the Premier League and in full of optimism for a quick return.
