Denmark football fan wins the internet after beer video goes viral

A remarkable victory from Denmark pushed the side into the Euro 2020 round of 16 but it was an off field performance that had tongues wagging on social media.

Denmark have had the craziest of Euro campaigns after Christian Eriksen’s collapse shocked the world in the first game of the tournament.

It looked as though the Danes could be headed for an early exit from the tournament when Finland claimed the 1-0 win in the Eriksen match, before World No. 1 Belgium claimed a 2-1 victory.

But results had fallen Denmark’s way with a thumping 4-1 win over Russia securing the side a place in the final 16 teams.

While it was largely expected that Denmark would make it through in the top two, it was unknown how much of an impact Eriksen’s absence would make and how costly the loss to Finland would be.

Then again, Denmark have some of the best fans around.
