Team profile

Eighteen years after they were crowned European champions, Denmark head to the World Cup in great form. They qualified as group winners, finishing ahead of Portugal and twice beating Scandinavian rivals Sweden, who missed out on the finals. It was a personal triumph for veteran coach Morten Olsen, who failed to lead his side to either the last European Championship or World Cup.

Despite those failures, Olsen remains popular with the Danish public and, with the likes of Daniel Agger, Christian Poulsen, Christian Eriksen and Nicklas Bendtner in their squad, Denmark look well equipped to edge out Cameroon and Japan to progress from a group the Netherlands will be expected to win. However, while the Danes have shown they can be resolute and hard to beat, unless Bendtner and Jon Dahl Tomasson hit form, goals could be hard to come by.
