Denmark were not even meant to be in Euro 1992, however, due to Yugoslavia’s disqualification, the Danes were inducted into the tournament and nothing was expected of it, in truth.
They surprisingly advanced to the knockout stages after finishing second in their group ahead of England and France and many thought their luck would run out against a star-studded dutch side including the likes of Dennis Bergkamp and Marco van Basten. Goals from Bergkamp and Frank Rijkaard along with a brace from Henrik Larsen forced the game to extra time.
The game stayed tied during this time and went on to penalties where arguably the best striker in the games at the time, van Basten, had his penalty saved by Peter Schmeichel. Denmark scored all their penalties and progressed to the final where they shocked the world and beat Germany to lift the trophy. A truly memorable semi-final.
