Danish national coach denounces quarantine obligation: ‘I hope Boris Johnson wakes up’ European Football Championship

Under the current rules, travelers still have to quarantine for ten days. This to the great dismay of national coach Kasper Hjulmand. “We hope Boris Johnson wakes up and gives access to thousands of Danish fans,” he told the Danish newspaper JP. “A large part of our fanatic fans was there in Baku during the quarterfinals against the Czech Republic. We know how much effort they put into it. They are partly responsible for the fact that we play with so much energy.”

according to JP pressure from Danish politics is also increasing. “We have to bring Danes to London,” it sounds. Several politicians believe that the dialogue with the United Kingdom should be opened. “With the low infection rate we have and with millions of people vaccinated, I think the time has come to do it responsibly,” said Member of Parliament Birgitte Bergman.

The few Danish fans attending Wembley are among the Danes living in Britain. The question, however, is whether they will fill those 5,000 seats in the stadium reserved for Danes. according to The Independent the Danish government is actively providing them with Danish shirts and scarves, so that they can still color Wembley red.

If Denmark makes it to the final, which will also be played in London, a thousand fans are welcome from Denmark. UEFA has already enforced this against the British government at an earlier stage. The same goes for fans from Spain or Italy, the countries that will play the other semifinal on Tuesday.
