The EURO 2021 semifinal match, Denmark vs England will be held on Thursday, 8 July 2021, starting at 02.00 WIB. The match at Wembley Stadium, London can be watched via RCTI live broadcast and Mola TV live streaming. A surprise opportunity was created by Team Dynamite again even though they had to play England at home.
The Danish national team once made a big surprise in the 1992 edition of the European Cup which was held in Sweden. At that time, they came with the status of a substitute for Yugoslavia who received sanctions.
Under the direction of the coach, Richard Møller Nielsen, the Danish national team at that time only had 10 days to prepare before plunging into the 1992 European Cup.”I was supposed to make a new kitchen [at my house] but then we were called to play in Sweden,” said Nielsen, the coach.Among the famous names that were carried by Denmark at that time, there was a goalkeeper who had strengthened Manchester United, Peter Schmeichel. Also there is Brian Laudrup, a player who had worn the uniform of Bayern Munich, Fiorentina and Chelsea. Others are Torben Piechnik, Lars Olsen, Henrik Larsen, to the main striker Flemming Povlsen.
The appearance shown by Denmark at the 1992 European Cup was actually not too impressive in the group phase. After holding England to a goalless 0-0 draw, they were beaten by Sweden 0-1. The 3rd match became the beginning of the Danish revival, because they won 2-1 over France.
The Red and White (the nickname of the Danish National Team) qualified for the knockout phase as runners-up with only 3 points. They are under group winners, Sweden, and can beat France (ranked 3) and England (caretaker).
In the knock-out phase or directly to the semifinals, the opponent faced was the Netherlands. The duel against Team Oranje ended with a 2-2 draw at normal time.
The match continued to the penalty shootout. Denmark won and managed to get rid of the Netherlands via a score of 5-4. Denmark then strolled into the 1992 European Cup final and challenged Germany.
In the final match which was held on June 26, 1992 in Ullevi, Gothenburg, they really made a surprise. Denmark was able to beat Germany with a score of 2 goals without reply. The two goals were scored by John Jensen and Kim Vilfort.
Denmark came out as champion of the European Cup in 1992 as well as won their inaugural title on the stage of interstate blue football. His shocking performance at EURO 1992 made the nickname Danish Dynamite (Team Dynamite), which emerged when they qualified for the 1986 World Cup, increasingly attached to the Danish national team.
Danish odds at EURO 2021
At EURO 2021, Denmark is able to advance to the semifinals, as they did at the 1992 European Cup. This time, they also managed to qualify for the knockout phase with only 3 points and finished runner-up in Group B, behind Belgium.
In the round of 16, the team now coached by Kasper Hjulmand crushed Wales with a score of 4-0. Next, the Czechs were eliminated by Denmark in the quarter-finals through a narrow 2-1 victory.
In the upcoming semifinals, Andreas Christensen and colleagues get an opponent that is not easy to beat. The reason is, England has not been touched by defeat plus holds a clean sheet record at EURO 2021.
Just one more step for Denmark to return to appear in the European Cup final. If they can get past The Three Lions, Team Dynamite has the potential to create another big surprise like in 1992.
“It’s really magical (getting through to the semi-finals). I showed the players a photo of Wembley when we were there in the fall.
The ambition to advance to the EURO 2021 final also has special meaning for Denmark’s main goalkeeper, Kasper Schmeichel. Because, he has the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of his father, Peter Schmeichel, who both have tasted the European Cup title.
