Serie A players inspire Macedonia and Denmark

Serie A players impressed in tonight’s 2022 World Cup qualifiers, as Goran Pandev and Eljif Elmas earned North Macedonia’s shock win in Germany, while Andreas Skov Olsen and Joakim Maehle scored for Denmark.

The most stunning result of the qualifying campaign so far is undoubtedly the 2-1 victory that North Macedonia registered away to Germany.

There were two Serie A players on target, Genoa veteran Pandev and then a late winner from Napoli midfielder Elmas.

Ilkay Gundogan had managed to get a temporary equaliser from the penalty spot.

Denmark notched up another very impressive victory, beating Austria 4-0 in Vienna.

Although Christian Eriksen and Simon Kjaer started, it was substitute Skov Olsen of Bologna who opened the scoring.

He went on to complete a brace, while Atalanta full-back Maehle was also on target.
