Denmark got their first victory at Wembley Atadium in over 35 years and secured a place at the top Nations League level last night thanks to a first kick Christian Eriksen spot-kick.
The Danes started well and were further boosted when defender Harry Maguire was sent off in the middle of the first half for his second reservation of the night.
Shortly after, Eriksen converted the only goal of the game through a penalty kick that most would probably argue should not have been given.
The victory comfortably put the Danes on seven points – on a par with England and two in Belgium.
And with only two games left, Iceland is now sure to finish last and be relegated from Nations League Group A.

Shades of ’83
The last time Denmark won at Wembley was in 1983, when Allan Simonsen’s penalty was the difference in what was a sensational victory at the time (see highlights below).
The match is particularly important for Danish football history, as it signaled to the world that the Danes had arrived on the football scene – and that its famous Danish dynamic dynasty in the 80s had begun in earnest.
A year later, they were a penalty shootout away from reaching the final of Euro 1984 and turned heads with their fantastic football brand in Mexico during the 1986 World Cup.
