Skov Olsen stretchered off in Denmark win

Bologna are sweating over Andreas Skov Olsen’s fitness as the Denmark international was stretchered off with back pain against Iceland.

Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic has given Skov Olsen the opportunity to shine in the opening three games of the campaign and the 20-year-old winger scored in the 4-1 win against Parma on September 28.

But the attacker could face a spell out after having suffered a back injury during Denmark’s 3-0 win against Iceland in the UEFA Nations League on Sunday.

Skov Olsen, who made his debut for the national side against the Faroes Islands last week, replaced Yussuf Poulsen in the 66th minute but was stretchered off at the end as an opponent collapsed on top of him.

“It was not nice to see him suffering as he left the field on a stretcher,” Denmark CT Kasper Hjulmand told the reporters after the match.

“He will have undergone some checks, but he had pain in his back.”
