A perfect record in the qualifiers was on the line when Denmark travelled to Hampden Park in Glasgow to take on host team Scotland in their final game as far as the World Cup 2022 qualifying campaign is concerned. Denmark had an unblemished record of nine wins and 27 points from nine qualifiers in Group F ahead of the Scotland game. Their bid for a tenth win in their group proved to be a steptoo far against in-form Scotland as they were beaten 2-0 by their hosts.

Scotland came into the game against the Danes on the back of five consecutive victories in the group and a place in the playoffs. Also, the Scottish team needed to beat Denmark to guarantee their place as a seeded team when the playoff draw is held later this month. On their part, the Danes had booked their place at the Qatar 2022 World Cup last month and with two games to spare. As a matter of fact, Denmark were the third team to confirm their place at the tournament after host nation Qatar and four-time champions Germany.

Denmark had conceded just one goal in nine games before they took on Scotland on Monday night. At the end of their game, the goals against count for the Danes rose to three goals after they conceded twice and either side of the half-time interval against Scotland.

Hearts defender John Souttar marked his return to the Scotland senior national team with the opening goal of the game on 35 minutes. The Hearts vice-captain was making a return to the team for the first time in three years.

Southampton striker Che Adams added a second goal for Scotland four minutes from time to give the home nation a famous victory at the expense of the away team.
