Football: UEFA EURO 2012 qualifiers: Denmark’s young guns beat Portugal
From the official UEFA report:
“Denmark’s young guns are itching for a first taste of major final tournament action while the likes of Dennis Rommedahl aim for one last hurrah after Morten Olsen’s perfect blend booked their UEFA EURO 2012 place with a 2-1 victory over Portugal.”
“Portugal have a great side and some great players but we played as a team, showed courage and won deservedly,” he said. “Our tactics were spot on and we did everything we had talked about before the game; really doing very well, closing them down in key areas, especially up front. We knew all about their quality, but we played a very solid game.”
