Denmark were left hugely frustrated by their draw against the Republic of Ireland in Friday night's Euro 2020 qualifier, with goalscorer Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg lamenting that they "had enough chances to win the game".

Not long after coming on as a substitute, Hojbjerg nudged the home side in front with a goal on 75 minutes. Denmark had been dominating the possession up to that point and looked to be on course for a victory against Mick McCarthy's side.

But the visitors struck back some 10 minutes later through a superb Shane Duffy header to earn a share of the spoils, the result leaving Ireland top of Group D.

Speaking to RTÉ Sport after the final whistle, Hojbjerg said that there's still plenty of time for Denmark to turn things around throughout the rest of the qualifying campaign but suggested that they let victory slip through their fingers.

"We had enough chances to win the game. We were 1-0 up 10 or 15 minutes before time and normally, you try and see it out. But we know Ireland is a good team, they have some strong players from dead balls and they showed it.

"There's still a long way to go in the qualifiers and luckily we still have it in our own hands. But like previous years, Ireland is not going to back off. Neither will we and there'll be some interesting months."

Star striker Yussuf Poulsen was among Denmark's players who had opportunities to score throughout the 90 minutes.

In echoing Hojbjerg's view that they should have won the tie, Poulsen said that creating goal chances is pointless if you fail to convert them.

"I think we played a really good game. That's how football is sometimes. It doesn't matter that you have a lot of chances if you don't score. It's nothing that's fair or unfair. It's a draw.

"We have to look at ourselves because we had the chance to win today and we didn't take the chance. I had a lot of good opportunities and with a bit of luck, we would have had two or three goals today. It was not the case and it's like that sometimes. Sometimes luck is not on your side."
