Denmark defeated rivals Iceland on Thursday in an international friendly at home. Denmark went into the game with much confidence since they have never lost to Iceland ever.
However, The Red and White as fondly called had lost six games prior to meeting Iceland. The head coach, Age Fridtjof Hareide replaced the former coach and hoped to kick start his coaching career with a great debut.
Denmark had always prevailed against their Iceland counterparts. In the 2002 world cup qualifiers, the danes defeated Iceland by six unreplied goals. In the race for Euro 2008 qualifiers, Denmark went past Iceland, winning by a three goal margin at home and a two goal margin away. In 2012, same Euro qualifiers, Denmark defeated Iceland by a lone goal at home and double of that at Iceland.
