So, give B. T.'s columnist, Morten Bruun, his views on who did it well, and who should have taken care together.
In this 'finals from the' special ' is that praise for the Danish national team from 1986, which enchanted the whole world with the wild and flamboyant football at the WORLD cup in Mexico.
And then there are the not-so-nice reviews for the european championship team from 2000, who in all ways disappointed fodbolddanmark.
You get the Celebrity barometer:
Even though Denmark won the european championship in 1992, is the main competition in 1986 yet in a very unique glow. Partly because it was the WORLD cup and not EM. It makes a difference. And then, because we were the whole world kæledægger.
Due to the time difference was the battles shown in the TV in the middle of the night back home in Denmark, and I remember how hard it was to fall asleep afterwards. It felt literally like a dream. Could Denmark really play so good?
Yes, the opponents were eerily strong. And we weren't. So we knew well in advance that the EM-finals 2000 could be heavy. But that we should leave the fighting in Holland/Belgium with his tail between his legs after three clear defeats and a total goalscore of 0-8, we had still not anticipated by the manufacturer.
But that was how it was. Team coach Bo Johansson had taken too many questionable (read: skadesplagede) players, so it ended up that our decimated squad lost all three matches clearly without to score a single goal.
In the match against the Netherlands was even awarded a penalty kick. A little encouragement? No, even a kick in the balls. Michael Schjønberg burned. Where it was embarrassing.
