Denmark shock Czechs

There was a huge shock in Italy’s World Cup group, as Denmark won 3-0 in the Czech Republic, while Gianni Di Biasi’s Albania stunned Norway.

Italy remain top of Group B with 10 points from four games ahead of their trip to Malta on Tuesday evening.

It was a huge upset in Olomouc, as the Czechs had until this stage been unbeaten in the World Cup qualifying group.

Andreas Cornelius broke the deadlock on 57 minutes, followed by ex-Roma defender Simon Kjaer and Niki Zimling.

Denmark now catch the Czechs in third place on five points from four games.

Earlier this evening, Bulgaria thrashed Malta 6-0 to fly into second place on nine points.

Elsewhere, former Torino Coach Di Biasi earned an historic result at the helm of Albania with a 1-0 victory in Norway.

It put Albania just one point adrift of Group E leaders Switzerland, albeit with a game in hand.
