Denmark have become Europe’s second favorite team this summer at Euro 2020, and their coach Kasper hjulmand he hopes his team can repeat the heroics of his 1992 team, which were crowned European champions.
Their tournament couldn’t have gotten off to a worse start this summer as Christian eriksen collapsed in the field against Finland, only for the game to resume and the Danes lose to the debutants. That incident, however, has caused the side to move.
“I believe in the character of my team”, Hjulmand saying. “And in the love and compassion they’re getting from the fans. It’s giving us wings.
“We are playing with Eriksen in our hearts. We really believe in ourselves and we will keep fighting. “
Questions about that 1992 team have been repeated in recent weeks, so much so that the manager is tired of talking about that memorable success.
“I don’t want to talk about 1992 any more”, Hjulmand saying. “They were different times, the Eurocup was different and football was different.
“We want to write our own story. We are trying to inspire and unite our country.”
Denmark meets England in the Wembley semi-finals on Wednesday and the Danish manager expects no surprises.
“I don’t think England will surprise us.” Hjulmand saying. “And I don’t think we will surprise them.”
