Morten Olsen’s Denmark side will kick-off their World Cup campaign in Soccer City, Johannesburg with a tricky encounter against the in-form Netherlands who approach the tie unbeaten in their previous nineteen matches, an impressive run which stretches back to September 08′.
Whilst Denmark do not approach the encounter with form on their side having suffered consecutive defeats to Australia and South Africa, they do however bring an omen into the encounter. The Dane’s have collected three points from all of their group openers in previous World Cup campaigns and Denmark manager Morten Olsen will be hoping the …

After 28 long years of failed qualifying campaigns to the World Cup, stretching back to 1958, Denmark qualified for Mexico 86′ and equipped with the rock-solid Morten Olsen, the creativity of Michael Laudrup and the goal-scoring prowess of Preben Elkjær Larsen, the World Cup debutants would go on to exceed all expecations set for them by the world of football.
To the surprise of millions, Denmark qualified from a group consisting of Scotland, Uruguay and West Germany with supreme ease recording impressive wins along the way including a 6-1 demolition of …

 
Nicklas Bendtner
In a tournament where we’ll be treated the brilliance of names like Leo Messi, Robin Van Persie, Fernando Torres and Wayne Rooney – Nicklas Bendtner has claimed he hopes to be leaving South Africa having beat the above names to the illustrious Golden Boot award.
Bendtner, 22, is no stranger to the odd, enigmatic statement which leave most of us scratching our head and wondering if the young Dane has a history of mental-illness, specifically Delusions. While in reality it’s fair to say the towering Dane’s off-the-pitch statements do not match …

European nation Denmark have revealed their new official away shirt that they will wear at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
The team were drawn into a tricky looking group with Portugal and rivals Sweden guaranteed to provide tough opposition. However, early slip ups from these two teams allowed the Danes to establish themselves at the top of the group. They never looked back and a victory against Sweden earned them a place in South Africa as group winners. Manager Morten Olsen will be pleased with the group stage draw that saw …

GROUP E
Netherlands
Denmark
Japan
Cameroon
 
After an impressive qualification campaign that saw them finish ahead of Portugal and Sweden, Denmark have been handed a relatively tricky World Cup group stage. Netherlands are likely to be the overwhelming favourites whilst Japan are the rank underdogs having never won a World Cup match outside of their continent. Theoretically, Denmark and Cameroon will be battling it out for second place. Cameroon are extremely unpredictable even though their squad contains quality players such as Samuel Eto’o. On the other hand, Denmark are a model of consistency although perhaps …

When you look at the teams that have qualified for the World Cup, it is normally fairly easy to pick out the potential winners and the no hopers. However, Denmark are one of the few teams that automatically come under neither category. Since they burst onto the world scene in 1992 with their European Championships triumph, Denmark have tended to alternate between failing to qualify for the major tournaments and losing narrowly to a strong team in the knock out stages. Quite often a forgotten name in international football, Denmark …

We are five games into to the Denmark’s world cup qualification campaign and things are looking good for Morten Olsen and his troops. Despite being handed some fairly tough opponents in Group A such as World Cup semi-finalists Portugal and Sweden the Danes have made fantastic progress so far.
Denmark’s campaign started at the Puskás Ferenc Stadion in Budapest where Olsen’s men failed to break down a tough Hungarian outfit captained by Fulham’s Zoltan Gera. Four days later Denmark faced arguably their toughest test in Group a when they travelled to …
