Denmark: (FIFA Ranking 14)
Coach: Morten Olsen
Dangerman: Jon Dahl Tomasson
If they were a premiership team side they'd be Middlesborough - solid, with a few stars but not enough class to challenge as champions
Under shrewd tactician Morton Olsen, Denmark have lost just 2 competitive matches in 4 years - one of which was against England in World Cup 2002, when they were comprehensively beaten 3-0. They have some excellent players who are playing in the top leagues across Europe including Chelsea's Jesper Gronkjaer and Villa keeper Thomas Sorensen, whilst their star player is the currently 'in form' Jon Dahl Tomasson, who has had a great season with AC Milan.
The Danes have a good record in the European Championships - surprisingly winning the tournament in 1992, but they may not have the quality to be able to make it through the group this time around.
A fair 0-0 draw in the first game against Italy, when Denmark matched the Italians in all departments has given the Danes an excellent chance to qualify. They then had a workmanlike win against group whipping boys - Bulgaria - which has left them needing just a draw against Sweden - and a 2-2 draw was beneficial to both Scandanavian nations. They now have a difficult 1/4 game against the Czech Republic who are rumoured to be resting several of their star players for their final group game against Germany. The winners of this 1/4 final will then play France or Greece in the semi.
