"We competed extremely well in an extremely difficult group. In each game, we were competitive from the first whistle to the last. Against France we defended very well. Against Sweden we managed to cope with an opponent with very different characteristics. And, against England, we faced another different kind of game that we found difficult to cope with. That’s what these tournaments are about – learning to cope with different footballing cultures."

Denmark team analysis

Denmark team analysis

• 1-4-4-2; 1-4-2-3-1 v England, always with two screening midfielders
• Good passing team; enjoyed playing through the thirds
• Vertical play with three or four passes; good switches of play with long diagonals
• Goalkeeper high behind defence; constructive build-up from back
• Occasional high pressing but mostly compact, deep defending
• Good use of width with full-backs prepared to support in final third
• Fast counters (long pass to strikers); team ethic; controlled attacking
