Well... with the previous absence of such a tread we're a bunch of nation defying twats, clearly
Anyway - got inspired by having looked at Belfast Telegraph these last days, and everything coming from players and manager Lawrie Sanchez say they're gunning for at least a point, and Sanchez is seriously talking about N.Ireland having a shot at qualification.
Then I looked down their squad and - vet goalies apart - saw that there's an Aston Villa guy and a Man. United reserve, and everyone else are playing in sub divisions. Admittedly I couldn't help chuckling, as - player by player - they're the fifth best team in the group.
However - they beat Spain.... and Leeds striker Healey got a hattrick, which says a lot about modern football (and eternal Spanish fluffiness I guess), so if the three points at stake didn't make it a given - its a game to take seriously.
Just the same - we should get a convincing win in this first game of the post-Gravesen era.
Personally I always thought Daniel Jensen was a neat player, but he really shouldn't be a mainstay on the NT I think.
Apart from this conondrum Rommedahl and Grønkjær are both injured, so it's Løvenkrands or Jan Kristiansen on the right wing, with Kahlenberg on the left - switching with Jørgensen.
Personally - particularly at home against a team like N. Ireland - I'd have liked to see:
N. Jensen--Agger Gravgaard--Jacobsen
Sure - it's very much an attacking lineup, but its also the most interesting - and potentially delightful - one we can play.
Wouldn't try it away to Spain.... but you know.
Prediction: Denmark 2 or 3 - 0 Northern Ireland
