The captain was ice cold under pressure: Tried to keep calm

Stine Jørgensen shook not at hand, as she could decide the WORLD cup-it was against France in slutsekunderne.

There lacked a few seconds of the crucial WORLD cup match against France, and Denmark led 19-18 when Anne Mette Hansen near vienna a penalties.

Stine Jørgensen took the responsibility from the syvmeterstregen, knowing that a burn could give the French one last chance to obtain the compensation that would be disastrous for the Danish team.

But captain Jorgensen was completely cool, and put the icy ball between the legs of the French goalie to the Danish victory at 20-18.

- I tried just to keep calm. I felt that I had a pretty good trip in my use only in the course of the fight.

- It gave me a certain peace. The only thing I thought was that it could be fresh just put it between the legs of the goalkeeper. There is often space between the legs, but it's also a chance to take, say, Stine Jørgensen.

She scored on all of its four penalties in the match and netted seven times in all, but is first and foremost excited for the concentration and the patience the team showed against the reigning world champions.

- It is not, because we made so many goals, but the discipline we played with, and the way we set the attacks up with many passes, it meant that the French could just run up and score.

- We have tried many times against France, that if we play too quickly and with too few passes, then they are too good and make too many kontramål. We got shut down. And so was Sandra Toft the in class, says Stine Jørgensen.

With the victory, Denmark is ready to mellemrunden, where the team will meet Norway, the Netherlands and Serbia.
