MALMÖ (Ekstra Bladet): Bad start! But all hope is far from out. If Denmark win the next eight matches, will be Nikolaj Jacobsen and Co. still european champions.
Denmark meetings Monday Hungary (which sent us out of the WORLD cup in 2017 in Albertville in France in ottendedelsfinalen), and Wednesday is waiting for Russia in the last group match.
From each group go to hold on to mellemrunden, where Denmark's Group E will be paired with group D, and F. If the Island clears the bulge against Russia and Hungary, and Denmark are doing the peas against the same opponents, will be the Island, going over to the next stage with two points, and Denmark starting as a little bad with a round ZERO on the account.
But the team must still ’only’ beat nations which is probably Sweden, Slovenia, Norway/France/Portugal – and so is doomed semi-final in Stockholm on Friday the 24. January.
Easy on the paper. Of course a completely different matter in practice.
- It is disappointing. Whew. It is too bad, because we have momentum at 29-29, where we have an infestation, throw it away and they score in the empty goal. It was a very crucial point, says René Toft on the incident, where Mikkel Hansen attempted a hazardous input to the line.
- It is pisseærgerligt to lose the first match, because we put ourselves under unnecessary pressure. We know we must win the next two matches, and they are not light. We saw Russia and Hungary play a close match (Hungary won 26-25), and we have before the game close against just Hungary. It is not a team, we just run over, so it will be an incredibly difficult battle, says the stovte man from Salling.

Mads Mensah has felt pressure from the beginning:
the Pressure HAS been greater, but I do not know how much greater. With this format, is under pressure from the start, so I do not think that there is so much new under the sun, he says.
- We have to address ourselves to, that we could not go on. We played not good, and if we don't play better in the coming matches, is it also not safe, we deserve to go. But it will eddermame be a line in the bill, for we still have big plans for this championship.
