Denmark have failed to qualify for the World Cup Finals, but they find themselves very hard done by, as they finished second in their qualification group, but failed to make the play-offs as they had the lowest points tally of all the second place finishers. Having been drawn alongside Italy, second place was probably the best Denmark could have hoped for. This compounds the recent disappointment for Denmark, after they were eliminated from Euro 2012 at the group stages.
You can read our preview below about what we predicted for Denmark at the 2010 Finals.
Denmark had a very good qualifying campaign and must have plenty of confidence going into the World Cup. Their best chance of getting out the group appears to be as group runners up and that doesn’t seem too unlikely.
Denmark are playing for second place in their group with Cameroon as it is very hard to not see Holland winnig the group, fairly easily. Cameroon are not a bad side and have the slight advantage of playing in their own continent and that might be bad news for Denmark who have a tough group campaign ahead.
Denmark are not certain to miss out on qualification from their group but there has to be a feeling that Cameroon could just edge them out. Denmark shoud have no problems finishing ahead of Japan though, who are the other team in their group, and they should finish third very comfortably.
