    Match background Only this chapter

    Denmark and Austria meet in their first UEFA European Under-21 Championship fixture for 28 years as they face off in Udine in the second round of Group B games.

    • While Austria marked their finals debut with a 2-0 defeat of Serbia on matchday one thanks to goals from Hannes Wolf and Sascha Horvath, Denmark were beaten 3-1 by holders Germany in their opening fixture.

    Previous meetings
    • The sides have played in only two previous competitive U21 fixtures – two 1-1 draws in the qualifying competition for the 1992 finals. The games in Aarhus on 4 June 1991, and Wiener Neustadt on 8 October the same year, both finished all square, with Denmark finishing top of their qualifying section and Austria eliminated in third place. The Danes went on to beat Poland 6-1 on aggregate in the quarter-finals before losing 3-0 to Italy over two games in the last four.

    Highlights: Serbia 0-2 Austria

    • Denmark were 5-0 friendly winners against Austria on 22 March 2018, thanks to goals from Jacob Bruun Larsen (6), Marcus Ingvartsen (8), Robert Skov (54), Nikolai Laursen (86) and Jannik Pohl (89). That is the Scandinavian side's biggest win in their last 14 matches.

    • Austria, however, had won a March 2010 friendly in Vienna 3-0 with goals from Marko Arnautovic, Alexander Grünwald and Georg Margreitter.

    • Christoph Baumgartner was in the Austria team that drew 2-2 against Denmark in the European Under-19 Championship elite round in March 2018. Oskar Snorre, Andreas Poulsen and Magnus Kofod Andersen were in the Denmark team in Silkeborg.

    • Stefan Posch plus substitutes Sandro Ingolitsch and Xaver Schlager played in Austria's 2-0 European U17 Championship qualifying round win against Denmark in September 2013. Daniel Iversen and Jacob Rasmussen were in the Denmark side.

    Form guide
    Denmark
    • This is Denmark's third successive U21 final tournament, and a fifth participation in the eight or 12-team finals. They were eliminated in the group stage in 2006, 2011 on home soil and 2017, but did reach the semi-finals in 2015, losing 4-1 to eventual champions Sweden.

    • Two years ago in Poland, the Danes finished third in Group C behind Italy and eventual champions Germany having collected three points from their three games (W1 L2).

    Matchday one: Germany 3-1 Denmark

    • Following the matchday one defeat by Germany, Denmark have now won four of their 13 group stage games in the final tournament overall, losing seven.

    • A place in the 2015 semi-finals equalled Denmark's most successful U21 campaign; they also reached the last four in 1992 having previously got to the quarter-finals in 1978 and 1986.

    • Denmark qualified as the winners of Group 3, with 23 points from ten fixtures (W7 D2 L1), and were unbeaten in their last five games (W3 D2). They scored 30 goals, including at least one in every match.

    Austria
    • This is Austria's first U21 tournament – the only team to be making their debut at the 2019 finals.

    • Austria had only previously reached the play-offs twice, losing to Finland on penalties in 2009 qualifying after each side had won 2-1 at home and going out to Spain on away goals in 2017 (1-1 home, 0-0 away).

    • This time round Austria were runners-up behind Serbia in qualifying Group 7, picking up 22 points (W7 D1 L2). They were unbeaten in their last six games (W5 D1) and have now won their last four competitive matches having beaten Greece 1-0 both away and home in the play-offs.

    • Matchday one made it nine games unbeaten for Austria – their longest competitive run without defeat since another nine-match sequence in 2007 and 2008 (W7 D2), which was ended by that 2-1 play-off loss in Finland.

    • At 61, Austria's Werner Gregoritsch is the oldest coach at the final tournament.

    • Skov made his senior Denmark debut on 10 June as they defeated Georgia 5-1 at home in a UEFA EURO 2020 qualifier.

    • Xaver Schlager played from start to finish in both of Austria's June matches in UEFA EURO 2020 qualifying, victories against Slovenia (1-0 home) and North Macedonia (4-1 away). Posch made his senior international debut as a half-time substitute in the latter.

    Head coach Only this chapter

    Niels Frederiksen

    Date of birth: 5 November 1970
    Nationality: Danish
    Coaching career: B93 (youth), Lyngby (youth), Lyngby, Esbjerg, Denmark U21

    • Frederiksen never played at any noticeable level but has been a coach since he was 17 – although it was not until 2011 that it became his full-time profession, when he left his high-profile job as vice president of a bank.

    • By then he had already been head coach at Lyngby for two years, having previously worked in the youth set-up at both B93 and then Lyngby. He was nominated as coach of the year at the Danish Football Awards in both 2010 and 2011.

    • Left Lyngby for Esbjerg in May 2013, taking the team into the UEFA Europa League group stage at the start of the following season by eliminating St-Étienne; Esbjerg won four of their six group games and were eventually knocked out by Fiorentina in the round of 32.

    • Relieved of his post in August 2015, he was later that month unveiled as Denmark's Under-21 coach, taking the side to the UEFA European Championship in both 2017 and 2019; also guided Denmark's Olympic side to the quarter-finals of the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro, where they were eliminated by Nigeria.

    • Having announced in January 2019 he would not be extending his contract with the U21s, Frederiksen was subsequently appointed as the new coach of Brøndby, whom he will join after the tournament in Italy.

    Werner Gregoritsch

    Date of birth: 22 March 1958
    Nationality: Austrian
    Playing career: Grazer AK (twice), VÖEST Linz, First Vienna, Leoben
    Coaching career: Grazer AK (youth), Grazer AK, Mattersburg, LASK, Kapfenberg, Austria U21

    • A centre-forward for local side GAK, where he made his first-team debut in 1976, Gregoritsch had spells with several other clubs, most significantly VÖEST Linz, before retiring to become a German and PE teacher.

    • Also worked with a series of amateur and youth teams, including a lengthy stint back at GAK between 1992 and 2000; in April of the latter year he took charge of the first team, winning the Austrian Cup the following month.

    • Took over at Mattersburg in 2002, guiding the club into the Austrian Bundesliga in 2002/03 before a two-year spell at LASK; appointed coach at Kapfenberg in 2006.

    • On 14 April 2010 Gregoritsch brought on his son Michael as a substitute in Kapfenberg's game against Austria Wien; within seconds of his introduction Michael had become the youngest ever goalscorer in the Austrian Bundesliga, aged 15 years 361 days.

    • An old-school coach and a father figure for his players, Gregoritsch thrives on working with youngsters and has been in charge of Austria's Under-21 side since 2012; having survived testicular cancer in 1997, he also devotes himself to giving talks at support groups.

    Final statistics

    • In 2007 the Netherlands became the first, and so far only, team to win the competition on home territory since the switch to a new format in 1994. Until then the final had been decided on a two-legged basis. Spain came closest in 1996, losing the final on penalties to Italy.

    • Since the 1992-94 change Italy have won four finals, the 2013 loss to Spain their first final reverse. The only other sides to have won it more than once are Spain (1998, 2011, 2013), Germany (2009, 2017) and the Netherlands (2006, 2007).

    • The 2013 edition was the highest-scoring single-match final as Thiago Alcántara's hat-trick helped Spain defeat Italy 4-2 in Jerusalem.

    • Seven red cards have been issued in single-match finals, most recently for Serbia's Aleksandar Kolarov in 2007.

    • Thiago's 2013 hat-trick was the first since 1994's move to a one-off game; Andrea Pirlo (Italy 2000), Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (Netherlands 2006) and Sandro Wagner (Germany 2009) have all scored twice in a one-off match. Prior to that Gary Owen (England 1982), Franck Sauzée (France 1988) and Andrei Sidelnikov (USSR 1990) had all scored twice in one leg of a final.

    • Vahid Halilhodžić (for Yugoslavia v East Germany 1978) and Pierre Littbarski (for West Germany v England 1982) are the other players to have scored a final hat-trick.

    • Since the single-match finals began three have ended in penalty shoot-outs, nine-man Italy triumphing 4-2 against Spain in 1996. The Czech Republic then prevailed 3-1 over France in 2002 and Sweden 4-3 against Portugal in 2015 following the competition's only two goalless finals.

    • Only the 1994 final has been decided in extra time, substitute Pierluigi Orlandini winning it for Italy against Portugal with the only goal in the 97th minute.

    • Ten players have won the European U21 title twice: Danny Thomas (England 1982, 1984), Dario Marcolin and Roberto Muzzi (Italy 1992, 1994), Fabio Cannavaro and Christian Panucci (Italy 1994, 1996), Kenneth Vermeer, Arnold Kruiswijk, Daniël de Ridder, Ron Vlaar and Haris Medunjanin (Netherlands 2006, 2007) and David de Gea, Thiago Alcántara, Martín Montoya, Iker Muniain and Diego Mariño (Spain 2011, 2013).

    • The fulcrum of Italy's 2006 FIFA World Cup-winning squad had also been involved in U21 final victories: Cannavaro (1994 and 1996), Filippo Inzaghi (1994), Francesco Totti and Alessandro Nesta (1996), Andrea Pirlo and Gennaro Gattuso (2000) and Marco Amelia, Daniele De Rossi, Alberto Gilardino and Andrea Barzagli (2004).

    • Germany's victorious 2014 World Cup squad included six members of the squad that lifted the 2009 U21 title in Sweden: Manuel Neuer, Benedikt Höwedes, Mats Hummels, Jérôme Boateng, Sami Khedira and Mesut Özil.

    • Laurent Blanc was the first player to achieve the treble of a U21 title (1988), a FIFA World Cup winners' medal (1998) and a UEFA European Championship victory (2000). Spain duo Juan Mata and Javi Martínez were the next players to do so after glory at the 2010 World Cup, U21s in Denmark in 2011 and UEFA EURO 2012.
