Chelsea star helps his team to become the second Nation to secure a spot in next year World Cup

Chelsea football club of England star Andreas Christensen was on action for Denmark national team on Tuesday night, and he was able to play a vital role in their deserved 1-0 victory over Austria in Europe's World Cup qualifier.

The Chelsea Academy product was given another starting role by his coach, following his outstanding performance for the team in their previous game, and he was able to impress again.

Andreas Christensen started in the home team's defence line alongside Simon Kjaer and Veetergaard and the trio were superb for the host.

After playing out a goalless draw in the first half of the game, Joachim Maehle opened scoring for the home team in the 53rd minutes through an assist from Thomas Delaney to end the match 1-0.

With Denmark's victory over Austria national team, it means they've already secured their spot in next year's FIFA World Cup, and they've become the second national team to do so, after Germany.
