We are red, we are white, we are Danish dynamite.” Denmark won Euro -92 and charmed the world with players like Elkjaer, Frank Arnesen and Soren Lerby in the 80s, but how will they succeed in South Africa? Inside Expekt took help from their in-house expert, Danish ex-footballer Ronni Hartvig, who looks ahead to the group phase where Denmark lock horns with Netherlands, Japan and Cameroon.
Denmark won their qualifying group ahead of Portugal and Sweden and has a strong, physical side that shouldn’t be underestimated. They key is that players like Nicklas Bendtner, Simon Kjaer and Thomas Sörensen gets back after injuries according to Ronni Hartvig who hopes for a Danish up-set in the first match against Netherlands. Denmark pays 2.05 in odds to go through from their group, and 151 times the money if they win the World Cup. Then the fans will sing – just like Ronni!”
