Euro 2012 Match Preview – Holland V Denmark
The first match in ‘ The group of death ‘ Group B starts tomorrow with Nicklas Bendtner and Denmark involved. The Danes take on Holland in Ukraine, Denmark are underdogs going into the crucial tie but lets not forget in 1992 suprised everyone by going and winning the European Championships.
Denmark have come a long way since then though, and are no mugs. The Danes are ranked 9th in the FIFA world rankings and will be a match for most sides. Holland in many ways started the theme of ‘ Total football’ which in otherwords means technical play maintaining the ball on the floor with fluid play and skill. The Dutch posses many stars in their side Wesley Sneijder, Van Der Vaart, Van Persie and Arjen Robben to name a few.
In many ways both teams play in a similar way, both sides like to play with the ball on the ground with quick 1-2 touch passing. I’m sure we won’t see The Danes just sit back tomorrow with alot of technical ability in the side they could cause Holland problems with featured player Nicklas Bendtner, Christian Eriksen, Rommedahl and attacking full back S.B-Poulsen some of the threats.
Featured player Nicklas Bendtner is in much better shape than 2 years ago when he had a bad groin injury and had to play on painkillers, this time though he is 100% ready N.B-52 . . .
I am much more fit and ready. I also got my speed slowly back, as I have missed It because of several minor injuries. It was annoying, but now the speed Is back and it still can be even better. So I am confident in my own behalf.I look very much forward to this EM, because I am in super shape.
