Euro 2016

Denmark remain modest before EURO

Denmark remain modest before EURO

It was somewhat disappointing for Denmark not to take a medal from last year’s world championship as hosts – such as not qualifying for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, but they are in a building and rejuvenating process. The Danish team will miss some of the important players, and head coach Klavs Bruun Jorgensen didn’t dream big before the European championship: the official goal for the team is to reach the main round. Looking at the team and the opponents, qualifying for the TOP12 is a must for the Scandinavians who dream to be a serious medal contender in the future competitions, as they were traditionally. They will play in Malmö, against Hungary, Montenegro and Czech Republic.

Key players: Sandra Toft, Stine Jorgensen, Anne Mette Hansen

Absences: Line Jorgensen (injury), Louise Burgaard (not selected after injury), Rikke Poulsen (injured)
