Russia

Before the final round of the group stage, the Russian national team takes second place in the standings of its group, with only 3 points scored. Stanislav Cherchesov's team started the tournament with a big defeat in the match with Belgium (0: 3), when Lukaku scored a double in the match, and Tom Meunier sent another goal into the frame of Anton Shunin. Next, the Russian team managed to beat Finland thanks to a goal by Alexey Miranchuk and a confident game by Matvey Safonov, who took a place in the goal. During the tournament, the Russian team lost two players at once. Yuri Zhirkov and Mario Fernandez were injured in the matches for the national teams.

Denmark

The Danish team is on the fourth line in the standings, having not scored points in the two opening matches. The Scarlet Guard started the tournament at Euro 2020 with a sensational defeat to Finland (0: 1). It is worth recalling that the meeting was interrupted at the end of the first half, when Christian Eriksen's heart stopped. The Danes finished the match in a state of shock, which was taken advantage of by the opponent who sent the ball into the goal.
