Denmark a top seed for Euro 2024 qualifiers
The Danes missed out on the Nations League finals, but the win against France last night sees them seeded first in the Euro 2024 draw next month

Croatia ended up topping the group by beating Austria 3-1 away.

As a top seed, Denmark will avoid big guns like Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Italy and Belgium – though they can still draw France or England, who following some disappointing results are now second seeds.
