The players wanted to play apparently.
They did but, according to the Danish Manager they had a choice of finishing last night or lunchtime today, so there was clearly an expectation that the game had to finish.
Shameful from UEFA really. No wonder they struggled in the 2nd half. Should have allowed a couple of days delay.
The Danish manager said his players had the option not to play and Timu Pukki has said the Finns would have done whatever the Danes wanted so it hardly seems UEFA twisted their arms to go back out. I'm not sure it was the right thing to do but seems the players were the ones making the choices. A couple of days delay would have meant Finland playing MOnday and Wednesday which is hardly ideal....
