But they vowed to party hard from home, with supporters dressed in red taking to the streets of Cardiff to cheer on Gareth Bale's men.

Welsh fan's nerves were rattled when Denmark's forward Kasper Dolberg put his country 1-0 up against Wales after just 26 minutes.

Events then took a turn for the worst when Denmark doubled their lead three minutes after half-time.

Wales wanted a free-kick after Simon Kjaer collided with Kieffer Moore but play was allowed to continue.

Meanwhile, at the stadium, hoards of Denmark fans cheer on their team.

Permission was granted because both Denmark and the Netherlands are in the EU Schengen travel area — but Wales is not. 

Both countries are not on the Netherland’s safe country list. 

Erik Brogger, director of Denmark's Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Citizen Service,said: “You can get to football, but you have to plan quite carefully if you do not want to risk being quarantined in a hotel room.

SunSport revealed that the last-16 tie – which kicks off at the Johan Cruyff Arena – favours the Danes due to coronavirus travel guidelines.

Eriksen underwent an operation to fit a 'heart-starting' device called an ICD to help prevent future problems.
