Harry Maguire saw red because England were beaten 1-0 simply by Denmark at Wembley to drop from top spot to 3rd in their Nations League group.
England were given a hill to climb with two huge incidents in the space of 3 minutes; first Maguire was delivered off for a second yellow cards (32), before Christian Eriksen place Denmark ahead from the spot (35) after Kyle Walker had fouled Thomas Delaney in the penalty region, a soft award from card-happy referee Jesus Gil Manzano.
Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel held Denmark ahead in the second fifty percent with a world-class save from Builder Mount’s close-range header, while Claire Kjaer’s brilliant last-gasp block refused Conor Coady late on.
The result, paired with Belgium’s win over Iceland, means England should avoid defeat away at Belgium in their next Nations League battle to stand a chance of successful their group and repeat their own successful 2018 campaign.
