Denmark Past Euro Records
Denmark had to wait 20 years between their first and second appearances in the Euros, from 1964 to 1984. After finishing fourth out of four teams in their inaugural campaign, Denmark reached the semi-finals in 1984.
A group stage exit followed in 1988, before a tremendous campaign in 1992 ended in them winning the Euros in Sweden, beating the unified Germany 2-0 in the final.
Understandably, they haven’t enjoyed the same success since. Group stage exits in 1996, 2000 and 2012 are broken up with tournaments they didn’t even qualify for, in 2008 and 2016. However, they managed to reach the quarter-finals in 2004, a realistic aim for this campaign.
