Denmark are fixtures at this level of the game and in Sweden are hoping to put right their recent reputation as a nation who always qualify but then seldom progress at final tournaments.

UEFA Women's EURO 2009 was a good example, as they lost their last game to the Netherlands when a draw would have taken them through to the knockout stages, a similar scenario to their defeat by Finland four years earlier. They have been in the last four on four occasions, and made four out of six FIFA Women's World Cups, and now hope a new generation can improve on that.

Denmark were quick to make their mark on women's football by winning the inaugural, unofficial world championship in 1970. Led by captain Lis Lene Nielsen and inspired by goal-hungry 15-year-old Susanne Augustesen, Denmark were the world's dominant force, a fact they reiterated by repeating the feat in 1971.
