Denmark’s Under-21 team recently ended their miserable Under-21 European Championship campaign with a victorious win over Czech Republic.
The game which saw Kenneth Zohore, Cardiff City ace score a stunning brace for Denmark was not enough to ensure that they remained in the competition.
Denmark had previously lost out in their two previous opening encounters against Italy and Germany, two games which saw Zohore sit on the bench at their start.
In the two games, he however came in as a substitute, going on to show his prowess and at the end of the game against Germany where they lost 3-0, he received praise for his efforts.
However, he ended the game on a frightening note as he collapsed to the ground in agony, clutching his knee.
For his efforts, the 23-year old was rewarded with a starting place against Czech, which was Denmark’s third and final group match.
The Bluebirds forward went on to repay the faith put in him by Niels Frederiksen, Denmark’s manager, performing incredibly well in the game which saw them route their opponents, Czech.
Denmark would go on to bow of the competition in style with a 4-2 win over their opponents.
Of the four goals, Zohore showed off his prowess by scoring two goals, and going on to assist the two other goals. What it simply means is that despite just making one start for the team, Zohore was directly involved in more goals in the group stages than any 0ther player.
The Cardiff ace man was eligible to play for the Under-21s only because he was 21 at the beginning of the qualifying campaign for the tournament. He will now go on a two week break before joining up with the rest of his Cardiff mates.
