Only the second World Cup finals for Denmark. The other one being in Mexico, 1986.

Is this really only the second time Denmark have appeared in the finals?

Afraid so, their fans paint their faces but the team doesn't go to war enough.

Denmark won the European Championships in Sweden 1992, as replacements for the disqualified Yugoslavia; who took war to their country instead.

The Coventry City of European Football will be relying heavily on Peter Schmeichel to stop the leaks, and Brian Laudrup to plug them in at the other end.

Denmark the country.

Match Reports.

Group Tables.


Denmark were mediocre in achieving second place in the group, but proved too much for Nigeria in the second round.

The quarter-finals set the Danes up with a very threatening Brazil side. As the saying goes, no games are easy at this stage.

And boy did the Danes take it to the World Champions; going a goal up in the second minute of their encounter. At 2-3 down, Marc Rieper headed against the cross-bar in the final minutes.

This game was ten times better than the Italy-France match earlier the same day.
