Denmark coach Morten Olsen is hopeful of causing an upset in his side’s Euro 2012 opener against the Netherlands on Saturday.
Olsen has admitted that Oranje are the favourites for the Group B clash, but insisted that Danish Dynamite will not be pushovers and is hoping for a bit of luck.
“It’s a game against one of the tournament favourites from our point of view, so of course Netherlands are favourites, but that doesn’t mean that we are going to throw in the towel and say that we don’t stand a chance,” he said.
“We will naturally try to grab the opportunity with both hands.
“We need to be successful in our play and of course you always need that little bit of luck, whether it’s a favourable call from the ref, an injury or hitting the post or not.
“We are not practicing hitting the outside of the post, we are naturally trying to hit the inside of the post.
“However, we’re dealing with people and sometimes you just don’t have that last bit of luck you need. Against Netherlands we might need a little more luck than we would against the other opponents in our group. But that is what we must hope for.”
