Denmark’s players paid for a private jet so defender Jonas Knudsen could fly home and see his new-born daughter after the FIFA World Cup win over Peru.
The 25-year-old’s wife gave birth to a girl several weeks earlier than expected, after he had arrived in Russia for the tournament.
Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel says they are all humans and need to look after.
He adds as a father himself he cannot imagine how hard it was for Jonas getting that message and not being there.
Denmark currently has three points in the bag after defeating Peru 2-nil in the first game.
They take on Australia at 12am and you can catch it live on FBC TV.
