Rasmus Hojlund earned admiration from Manchester United fans as he delivered an inspiring speech following Denmark’s significant 1-0 triumph over Finland.
Hojlund, who recently debuted for Manchester United in a match against Arsenal before the international break, came on as a second-half substitute during Denmark’s Euro 2024 qualifier in Helsinki.
Denmark secured all three points when Tottenham’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg scored a crucial goal four minutes from the end of the match. This victory places Denmark in a qualifying position in Group H as they strive to secure a spot in next summer’s tournament in Germany.
