Video England vs Denmark at Euro 1992:
Euro ‘92 was the stuff of dreams. Denmark had not even qualified for the finals, but two weeks before kick-off, when most Danish players and their fans were heading for the beaches of southern Europe, UEFA decided to disqualify Yugoslavia because of the worsening political and humanitarian situation in the Balkans.
Denmark had finished behind Yugoslavia in qualifying and were hurriedly drafted into action. They made the short journey across the Baltic’s Oresund strait from Copenhagen to Malmo, where they opened the tournament with a goalless draw against England.
Denmark indeed proved competitive in a drab 0-0 draw with England and 1-0 defeat to Sweden. With only the top two progressing from their group though, their campaign was written off, not for the first time. Danish TV commentators signed off from the Sweden match incorrectly saying Denmark were already out of the competition, perhaps not realising that with all the other matches so far in the group drawn, a win in the final group stage match against France could still send them through.
At the finals in 1992, a shock 2-1 win in the last group match against a French team featuring Papin, Cantona and Deschamps sent the Danes through to the last four as Sweden had beaten England. Vilfort missed the France game to return to Denmark to attend to his seriously ill daughter but returned to the camp with the mood lifted to another level.
