It's hard to believe how they won Euro 92

This is a true story of last-minute preparations. When most teams insist on having a training camp to prepare for major competitions, Denmark had no such luck...

 

 

 

Denmark beat Germany to win Euro 92

Now, Denmark weren’t a bad team. But, they weren’t exactly supposed to be even at the 1992 European Championships. Yugoslavia finished ahead of them in qualifying for the tournament but political unrest & sanctions meant UEFA banned them from competing. So, with a week to get off their beach holidays & without their star player Michael Laudrup, Denmark beat France, Holland and finally the world champions Germany to be crowned champions.

Although Michael Laudrup, the Danish team's star player was missing his younger brother stepped up to show the footballing world what he was made of. He was the finesse to all of Denmark's hard work but flowing game.

Football has the ability to change lives. Those with the desire & focus can become heroes for a nation. Senegal did just that in 2002...

 

The most unlikely winners of Euro 2004 worked hard

DONE IT!

 

Denmark again showed that a team that plays as a team knowing a system that best suits the players can surprise anyone. Many people in football still can't believe how the Danes did it. Yes, they had a good team and this tournament saw Peter Schmeichel come to everyone's attention but with such prep it was a result just getting all the players together.
