I'm certainly nervous. It's so important that they get a super start against Ukraine, so they get confidence and an enthusiastic respons for the fans. It will be needed against Slovenia and Belarus - we generally play very tight matches with them.

Belarus are always very disciplined in defence ("poor mans Swiss") and with Koval in goal you really need SKILL to get past that. Nicklas Jensen in goal form will be a must for Denmark, since Nichlas Hardt is still struggling after his knee injury and Morten Madsen also have a goal scoring slump lately.

From what I remember Slovenia is a less physical more fast team ("poor mans Latvia"), so against them we have to be READY from the start and not play slowly as danish players can do when they are favourites - then they often forget to work the behind out the trousers (Italy game last WC anyone!). Don't let the Rodman brothers fool you...even though it's "only" DEL-2. Marcel Rodman is drafted (2001) and he scores goals (leads DEL-2 in points)..
