Croatia beat Denmark 2-1 to top Nations...

ZAGREB, Croatia: Croatia substitute Lovro Majer scored a late goal as they beat Denmark 2-1 on Thursday (Sep 22) to top UEFA Nations League A Group 1 with the winner coming two minutes after visiting captain Christian Eriksen’s superb equaliser.

Having beaten the Danes in Copenhagen in June, the Croatians repeated the feat to reach 10 points from five games, one ahead of Denmark in their bid for a Nations League semi-final spot.

Defender Borna Sosa, who was born in the Precko district of Zagreb and learned his trade at local club Dinamo before moving to VfB Stuttgart, had opened the scoring by slotting home from the edge of the area four minutes after the break.

Despite Denmark’s attack misfiring for much of the night, a moment of magic from Eriksen looked set to secure a point as he fired home a brilliant dipping shot in the 77th minute.

The relief was short-lived though as Majer, who came on for Mateo Kovacic after Eriksen’s goal, picked up the ball on the edge of the box and rattled it past keeper Kasper Schmeichel.
