Andreas Christensen's perfect game! Barcelona defender tops Toni Kroos to set Euros record with unbelievable stat during Denmark draw against Slovenia


Denmark failed to keep their lead against Slovenia as they drew 1-1, but Andreas Christensen was on song as he created a new Euros record.


Denmark draw 1-1 with Slovenia

Christensen sets Euros passing record

Gave 89 passes with a 100% accuracy


WHAT HAPPENED?

The Barcelona defender has been in very good form all season long as Xavi Hernandez converted him into a defensive midfielder thanks to exquisite ball-playing abilities alongside his awareness, and the ability to find the free man. He has just proved why Xavi did the same in the domestic season as he set a passing record during the draw against Slovenia.


THE BIGGER PICTURE

As per OptaJoe, Christensen ended the match with a new record after finishing the draw with a 100 per cent pass accuracy rate as he completed all 89 of his passes in the game to set a new record for the most passes made while not misplacing a single pass throughout the game in a single European Championship match since 1980.

HEAT MAP


DID YOU KNOW?

Germany's Toni Kroos almost achieved the record on Friday evening in the Euro 2024 opener against Scotland where he gave a total of 102 passes during his 80-minute spell for Julian Nagelsmann's side. However, the German unfortunately misplaced one pass and failed to take the record to his name on the night, which opened the opportunity for Christensen on Sunday.

WHAT NEXT FOR CHRISTENSEN?

The Barcelona defender will need to be at his best during Denmark's next game as another dropping of points could end their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages. They will take on England on June 20 at the Deutsche Bank Park in Frankfurt.
