Shane’s Header Grabs Point for Denmark

Ireland seemed to set out toward a first defeat in the challenge after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, the substitute had given the Danes the lead by 4 minutes in the wake after coming off from the bench. However Duffy’s 85th-minute header shot, his third goal internationally, was sufficient to guarantee a point at the Telia Parken Stadium and safeguard the unbeaten begin Mick McCarthy’s side had made to their campaign of Group D.

Jesus Navas fired his first international goal in six years as Spain thrashed the Faroe Islands 4-1 in Torshavn to stay top on Group F. The Sevilla winger has come in from the cold under Luis Enrique, Spain manager, who was absent from the game for personal reasons, earning his first caps in 5 years. Navas, who has scored for Spain in the month of September in the year 2013, Jose Gaya, Sergio Ramos, and also an own-goal by Teitur Gestson, the goalkeeper had sealed the third straight of Spain for winning the qualifier of Euro 2020.
