Denmark FA & Players Have 'Temporary' Truce In Place For Wales Match

Denmark FA & Players Have 'Temporary' Truce In Place For Wales Match

Amid doubts that Denmark would field a full-strength XI against Wales in their opening Nations League match, it has this evening been reported that a 'temporary agreement' has been reached, and Denmark will start as per usual.

In a statement released by the Danish Football Association this evening, it was confirmed that they and 'the Player Association have entered into a temporary agreement for DBU's Lord-Senior national team squad until September 30, 2018.'

Quarreling over commercial rights for players, such issues will be put to one side until Denmark's matches against Wales.

However, with Ireland's match against Denmark to come on October 13, attention will turn toward the negotiations set to resume between the FA and players on September 10.
