Yesterday’s 2-1 loss to Germany effectively knocked Denmark out of Euro 2012.
Danish coach Marten Olsen said that his team was just unlucky and that when you play a strong team like Germany, a little luck goes a long way.
“When you take risks against a dynamic and fast-footed team, you will be punished,” exclaimed Olsen, who said he had no doubts that his team would improve.
“I’d like to thank the players who performed well during the competition. In the end, the little details proved to be our downfall. Some of our guys proved that they could perform on an equal footing with the Germans,” noted Olsen.
German coach Löw said the game with Denmark was difficult, as expected. Löw confessed that 3-4 years ago, his team wouldn’t have won such a game. The German coached praised the defense of the Danes and their lightning counterattacks.
Löw noted that he thought the Danes just wanted to come away with a draw and not a win.
He said the Germans could still improve their game, noting the additional pressure they could exert on opponents and restricting their open spaces. Löw said this is what the German side must achieve in its game with Greece, who, he expects, will play a game similar to Denmark.
Noting that Greece are masters of the game, Löw likened the upcoming match with the Greeks as something akin to “gnawing rocks”.
