The winning goal was scored by Italian Atalanta player Joaquim Mihli 53.
Denmark’s tally of 24 points is at the top of Group F.
Denmark became the second qualifier for the World Cup in Qatar after Germany yesterday.
Denmark had previously defeated Austria by four in the third round.
Coach Kasper Helmand’s men have maintained a great and stable level since reaching the semi-finals of the European Cup 2020 last July, when they lost in extra time against England. Since then, they have won all four of their qualifying matches.
Denmark is the only team to win all eight of its qualifying matches with 27 goals and a clean sheet.
With qualification guaranteed, Scotland’s efforts remain to maintain its second position, after it strengthened it on Tuesday with a difficult victory over the Faroe Islands 1-0.
With this goal scored by Lyndon Dykes in the 86th minute, Scotland raised its score to 17 points.
Thus, Austria, fourth with 10 points, Alvaro fifth with four, and Moldova last with one point, are out of the competition.
