Qualification campaign for Denmark

Denmark had the joint second-best defense in the Qualification campaign as they conceded only three goals. Interestingly they kept clean sheets in eight of the 10 matches in the qualifying round and their only defeat came at Hampden Park when Scotland beat them convincingly in November 2021.
