Welsh fan’s nerves were rattled when Denmark’s forward Kasper Dolberg put his country 1-0 up against Wales after just 26 minutes.

Meanwhile, at the stadium, hoards of Denmark fans arrived ahead of kickoff at 5pm. 

Danish supporters were able to travel to the country if they entered and left Holland within 12 hours. 

That meant he avoided having to quarantine on their arrival.

Permission was granted because both Denmark and the Netherlands are in the EU Schengen travel area — but Wales is not.

Both countries are not on the Netherland’s safe country list. 

Erik Brogger, director of Denmark’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Citizen Service,said: “You can get to football, but you have to plan quite carefully if you do not want to risk being quarantined in a hotel room.

“It should be technically possible, but you have to plan it pretty carefully.

“For most people, it will probably be better to stay at home. We encourage you to watch the match at home.”

Danish authorities said that fans are allowed to attend if fans present a negative PCR test that is at most 72 hours old.
