Danish star rocked: - Player not to be a fool

MALMÖ (Ekstra Bladet): The Danish national team stands right now as a shaken boxer in the EM-ring. In the continuing confusions and dependent on the icelandic arms to hold itself up.

The højdramatiske a draw against Hungary means that, right now counted over Denmark. And Nikolaj Jacobsen's crew can be out before they even get the chance to travel themselves.

Iceland must win over Hungary - otherwise the Danish EM-participation is a thing of the past! A surreal - but-true - scenario for the reigning world champions.

- I thought we were so easy to shake. There has certainly been something psychological, which have played into. It is a long time ago, that we have the game on the fiasco, says Henrik Møllgaard.

- We have been accustomed to play many great and decisive battles. But it has been to play in the finals. It has been fighting about the gold. It has been fighting to win something. Here we are basically not to be a fool. We have obviously not been very skilled at, he tells.

- I hope that we get the help from Iceland on Wednesday, so we have something to play for. We don't just play an inconsequential match against Russia, says Møllgaard. Photo: Lars Poulsen.
Now waiting for hopefully two matches with a lot at stake on Wednesday evening - it may already be over when the national anthem sounds prior to the match against Russia.

But win the Island over Hungary, Denmark has still the possibility to book the ticket to mellemrunden.

I hope then that we get the chance to prove ourselves on Wednesday. But I can as well doubt right now. I thought we were in a completely different place, says Møllgaard.

are used to win very much in your clubs and in the national team. How changes in conditions to be dependent on a result and struggle with the fear that it can go wrong?

- It is a good question, because I thought it was going to be a theme to play against ourselves and the fear. But it was clearly in the day. I hope that we get the help from Iceland on Wednesday, so we have something to play for. We don't just play an inconsequential match against Russia, says Møllgaard.

- But then it becomes a theme again. We also become afraid to fail there? Or comes there is a different energy and charisma, as we know the Danish national team. I kind of doubt it right now. I thought we were in a different place. But we have been very easy to shake obviously, sounds the assessment.

It was Hungary's profits on Monday night. But the danes can thank themselves for part of the sad upshot. Offensively fumbled the favorites against Hungary. It recognizes the Mads Mensah, who points out that it was the pace, it was wrong with.

- We play too slowly. We can't go the balls in the goal, then we must have found some speed and pace. It was the hallmark of our game last year. Right now it's a game of go-handball, and it's damn hard to make goals on the way, says Mensah.
