Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest in Denmark’s opening defeat to Finland and has since been discharged from hospital after an operation to implant a heart starter device.

Following an encouraging spell from Wales, Denmark took control and opened the scoring after 27 minutes through Dolberg’s strike from outside the area.

Wales vs Denmark Highlights: Dolberg had a chance to double their lead moments later but his close-range flick was blocked by Wales goalkeeper Danny Ward.

Ward was called into action again just before the break when he made another save from the unmarked Maehle.

Denmark made it 2-0 just three minutes into the second half after Neco Williams’ misplaced clearance fell to Dolberg inside the box who converted the chance.

Wales players were furious because they felt Kieffer Moore was fouled in the build up but VAR checked and the goal was given.

Substitute Mathias Jensen almost grabbed a third after 66 minutes but his cross clipped the post.

Denmark scored a third in stoppage-time through Maehle while Harry Wilson was sent off for a reckless challenge before the final whistle.
