    That's why it's such a head****...head to head isn't even in that scenario. And if it goes down to goal difference, Finland and Denmark will be even. Which means it goes to goals scored in the head to head, which means Finland stay second.
    But how is any of that fair on Russia, who beat Finland in the head to head!?

    It doesn't go down to Goals Scored on head to head. It's still even as Belgium aren't included in the head to head.it goes down to regular GD then goals scored which Denmark win.

    Finland can't win the head to head group, neither can Russia. It can only be even if Denmark win 1-0 or Denmark can win it if they win by any score other than 1-0

    But Denmark likely win GD or Goals Scored on the regular group anyway.

    Just think of it this way- if all finish on 3pts then Denmark almost certainly go through barring a very unlikely and specific scenario which involves Finland scoring twice but still losing 3-2 and Denmark only winning 1-0.

    That sorts out the issue of the potential 3 way tie

    And that goal means if they all finish on 3pts Denmark definitely go through.

    Danish fans going mental here. Belgium goal disallowed though?

    Penalty to Russia. Went down easy, but looked it on first view.

    Second view, player went down very easy, I'd be disappointed if that was given against my side.

    What the f**k? That was clearly onside.

    VAR a bag of shit yet again. Not that I care, would be good to see Finland go through.

    Need two goals in this Belgium v Finland game for my bet.

    Really want Finland to go through though so hoping they'll score on the counter.

    Shame. No way that's being ruled out.

    Bad keeping, you have to say. Not a great deal of time to react but he palmed it into the net.

    That's tough to probably go out to that.
