KUMAMOTO (Ekstra Bladet): This time tasted the beer any better. Klavs Bruun emergency of course its sejrsbajer. In just 24 hours he had beaten the morale of his team and recreated the belief that Denmark has a role to play in this WORLD cup.
But the victory at 24-18 over Brazil is just the first step towards it, that, after the defeat of Germany seemed almost impossible: An admission ticket to the held by at the finals.
But the ticket is redeemed, it requires a victory over France on Friday. A draw or a Danish defeat will mean that Denmark drops down to play the President Cup on the secondary locations.
One of the explanations for Denmark rose after the disappointment against Germany is to be found in the mental. The entire squad spent many hours in the course of Wednesdays to talk each other up and to make demands on each other.
Klavs Bruun says that there was talk about that the air should be cleaned.
- It was important to say that because we had lost a battle, then it was not sin for ourselves. But it was important that we also went out and lost the next. We would show that there is a difference between the team that makes up here, and who put up last year at the european championships in France. Something has happened mentally.
There was no spoken hard at our meetings. It was spoken honestly. Today we made so many right things. We had to take the pace out of the kontraerne to cherish the ball, and it succeeded, which I'm really happy with.
And so we must learn not to panic if we get behind. Now we meet France, and can we risk that to come back, but we don't need the stress. We will create chances, even if we need to meet one of the best defence in the world. I'm not so concerned that we are not going to opportunities.
- How do you see the fight, which is a small finale?
- I had hoped that it was a struggle on several points. It is so not. Now it will be a finale to come on. It is also fine. The pressure is the same. France is a good team, and now they have got blood on the tooth after their victory over Germany, says Klavs Bruun.
Sandra Toft is also looking forward to the match against France. She reminds us that, apart from at the european championships last year, so Denmark has played good matches against the French. Most recently the two teams met was at the Golden Leaguestævnet in the spring, and won Denmark. And Sandra Toft has a suggestion of how it can be done again.
- It will be a war. It will be difficult but we believe in it. Our defense must stand just as well against France, as it did against Brazil, otherwise it becomes really difficult.
