As an aside based on that, what I think is funny is that Portugal are taken as a more serious threat in Euro 2012 Group B than Denmark when Denmark have taken 9 points off them in qualifying for the last two tournaments.
Denmark's just like Sweden. Can dance with the best of 'em, especially in the qualifiers, but ultimately have a hard time winning matches at the championships. Last four championships for Denmark(euros, worlds), 14 matches = 4 wins. Sweden last four championships, 15 matches = 4 wins.
But group stage is one thing, elimination games another. Denmark could certainly force some draws against Netherlands, Germany and win against Portugal. Not totally far-fetched really.
