World Cup dreams fading after Armenia fiasco
Denmark’s chances of taking part in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil took a devastating blow today after they were thrashed 0-4 by Armenia at Parken Stadium tonight.
Two early goals in the first half and two more in the second did in the Danes, who were victimised by their own terrible defending and some effective Armenian counter-attacking.
Two goals from Yura Movsisyan and one each from Aras Özbiliz and Henrikh Mkhitaryan saw the Danes endure their worst home defeat in recent memory.
The result leaves the Danes with just six points from six games, four points behind Bulgaria and three behind Czech Republic.
Denmark will have to win their remaining four games to stand any chance of reaching a playoff spot.
Their next match is on September 6, when they take on Malta away.
