    I'd assumed everyone was being deliberately negative just to be contrary - I certainly didn't think we played badly against a strong International side and we were still blooding the youngsters. Good lessons will have been learnt from today - including for Giggs

    Our central midfield was poor though and that relates to senior players like Ramsey and Allen. I dont thnk the pen changed anything. We rarely looked like scoring.

    We would have still needed to score a goal. I didn't see any signs of one coming.

    This is the makings of the best Welsh squad in my lifetime. As for GBs continual ranting about AW. The boys cheese has definitely slid off its cracker.

    Ashley Williams dropped his cheese? Doesn't surprise me.

    A difficult watch that. I could say that the second goal was from an incorrect penalty decision but even so Hennessey was our MotM and first goal was a collective defensive error.

    Positives: Giggs and the young players will hopefully get better from this sort of tough lesson. Great crowd noise. Denmark are perhaps the nicest possible nation to give you a tough, footballing lesson?

    But we weren't outclassed as Ireland were. We stayed in the game and kept trying our game.

    The penalty changed everything. With their defensive record, Denmark were comfortable at 2-0, but the game would have had a completely different feel to it if they had gone into the last ten minutes defending a 1-0 lead - we've got players who can score a goal out of nothing and Denmark would have been so much more edgy in the closing stages than they were because of the gift they were given by the ref.

    ^^^^ right-backs

    Should have played Wilson if Brooks was fatigued.

    Im not reading too much into the performance. The Denmark players have rested all week whereas it was our second game in three days (+ travel). And it showed.

    Selection looked a bit negative to start with.

    As soon as Denmark got ahead they held a great shape particularly hard to interchange passes with. They closed us down well and don't think the midfield offered enough options for the defence.

    It resulted in us just putting in crosses from poor positions with no real option.

    I think maybe we should have given Bale 10 minutes on the left to see how he would have done as certainly would have pulled a few out of the middle.
    Giggs was constantly changing shape which probably made us less effective but at least he was trying.

    Giggs f**ked that right up. Should have just gone with the same team.

    Denmark were a far better side than Ireland and they were a lot fresher than our players, having arrived this morning at 1am.

    Fine margains separated us, an excellent goal from Eriksen and a penalty against Ampadu that was slightly harsh.

    Neither team was spectacular tonight and we could have easily drawn that on a different day, lets not worry too much!

    I thought we passed the ball better than Denmark and our movement was better too. I agree with TOBW, had that penalty not been given, Denmark would have been more nervy in that second half and we'd have got something out of the game.

    We did look a bit tired in that second half. Overall, I'm not too disappointed, we clearly have the making of a good squad.
