With the friendly against the US just days away, the Danish national football association DBU finally agreed to a new pay deal with the players after weeks of heated negotiations. The new collective agreement will be more performance-based and give DBU the saving of 17 percent it wanted. Denmark went on to beat the US 3-2 thanks to a Nicklas Bendter hat-trick.

Handballers ousted
