Historically, the A-level team competed in the Olympics until and including the tournament, whereafter Olympic games count as under national games.
In addition to the A-level team and youth teams, Denmark also has a special league national team named Ligalandsholdet , with the best Danish footballers from the Nordic leagues.
Ligalandsholdet was created in January , and has played unofficial games for the national team during the winter break of the Nordic leagues every year since, save for and As such, the national team coach has on several occasions outlined the purpose of having unofficial matches played by Ligalandsholdet as an opportunity of testing new potential upcoming Danish players for the A-team.
The first three editions of the Olympic football event in — had an unofficial status, as the event was not yet open for national football teams to compete, and only had limited participation of three or four club teams from a few nations.
Denmark had no club team invited in the Olympics and the Olympics , but then received a special invitation for the Olympics , to compete against one Greek club team Athens and two club teams from the Ottoman Empire Smyrna and Thessaloniki.
The team to represent Denmark was compiled of players from the Copenhagen Football Association KBU , and they won the event, and thereby an unofficial gold medal.
Two years later, in the first official football tournament at the Olympics , Denmark won a silver medal. At the next Olympics, in , the team again won a silver medal, which was followed by a golden era from July until August , with Denmark ranked most of the time as number one in the world by the Elo ranking.
Although Denmark figured fairly prominently in the pre- FIFA World Cup era, international success would elude them for years from the first World Cup in and forward.
When DBU opted to set their sights higher, they allowed the national team to start contesting the Olympics again, promptly resulting in a bronze medal at the Olympics.
After, the team only reached the quarter-final at the Olympics , with the DBU choosing not to contest the next Olympics. As football remained an amateur past-time, most of the best Danish footballers moved abroad to make a living,  and due to DBU enforcing the rule to bar all professionals from the national team, it started to become difficult to assemble a highly competitive team.
Denmark experienced their next revival at the Olympics with a third set of Olympic silver medals. However, this finish was considered by many as being more the result of a comparatively easy draw rather than a result of a well-playing team.
In order for Denmark to qualify for the semi-final, they only had to defeat Malta , Albania and Luxembourg. In the semi-final, Denmark fell 0—3 to the Soviet Union , then lost the bronze match to Hungary.
The strict rule of only allowing amateurism at the national team was finally abolished by the DBU in May , as they had acknowledged this change was needed in order to build a highly competitive team.
In February , when the DBU also decided to allow professional football to be introduced in the Danish leagues, the way was at the same time paved for the national team to sign its first sponsorship with the well-known Danish brewery Carlsberg.
The new sponsorship enabled the DBU to hire the German Sepp Piontek in July as the first full-time professional coach of the national team.
The full transition of the national team from amateurism to professionalism had now been accomplished, and indeed, this would soon lead to a vast improvement in the performances of the team.
In FIFA World Cup qualification , Denmark finished with eight points from eight matches, including a 3—1 win against eventual World Cup champions Italy , but Denmark failed to qualify for the final tournament despite the impressive result.
Denmark qualified for their first international tournament since , and the team was dubbed "Danish Dynamite" in a competition for the official Danish Euro song.
Following the strong performance at the finals, the name of "Danish Dynamite" became a mainstay for the following decade of Danish national team under head coach Sepp Piontek.
After the glory days of , the success of the team continued, as it first qualified for Euro , and then had a nearby qualification for the Olympics.
After this disappointing news had arrived, Denmark had to pin all its hope and faith for a successful performance at Euro The first goal for the newly appointed Nielsen was to qualify for the Euro in Sweden.
Denmark began with a secure home victory against the Faroe Islands , but the following results in the qualification were an away draw against Northern Ireland and a 2—0 home loss against Yugoslavia.
Due to the poor start, as well as a strong disagreement with the coach about the new defensive team tactics, the two best Danish footballers at the time, Michael Laudrup and Brian Laudrup , opted to quit the national team in November Despite this strong criticism, Denmark won the rest of their five matches in the qualification group, including a 2—1 away win against Yugoslavia.
However, this strong comeback was not enough to qualify, as the team still had to settle with a second place in the group, behind Yugoslavia.
Contrary to popular belief,  the team did not enter the tournament completely unprepared, after having rallied home from seaside vacations.
Advancing from the group stage ahead of England and France , Denmark defeated the Netherlands — the defending Euro champions — on penalties in the semi-final.
Then, in the final , Denmark won 2—0 win against reigning World Cup champions Germany, ensuring Denmark won its first international trophy.
As defending champions at Euro , Denmark was not able to continue its previous success, but disappointed with a lacklustre performance after an early elimination in the group stage.
Results-wise, the tournament was not a complete disaster, as the team had achieved a respectable win against Turkey , a draw against Portugal and only a defeat to Croatia.
The reason why both the coach and team faced strong criticism after the tournament was mainly because of the defensive and "boring" playing style.
Facing a new wave of criticism, Nielsen reached a mutual agreement with the DBU to terminate his contract by the end of June After defeating Saudi Arabia 1—0, drawing with South Africa and losing 2—1 to eventual champions France in mediocre matches, the Danish team qualified to the knockout stages as second in the group.
In the next match, however, Denmark played some of the best football of the entire tournament, beating Nigeria 4—1 in a fantastic game.
In the quarter-final against Brazil , the Danes went out with a beautiful 2—3 defeat to the later silver medalists in a very close and emotional game.
When this goal was achieved by Johansson, he received significant praise. However, at the tournament proper, Denmark disappointed with three losses in the group stage.
Johansson was heavily criticized for his squad selection, which containing several players with injury problems and in poor form. The new coach, starting for Denmark in July , turned out to be the former national team captain from the successful team of the s, Morten Olsen , and the team was quickly dubbed the "Olsen Gang", a reference to the series of Danish movies based around the main character Egon Olsen and his genius criminal plans.
The nickname was also sometimes used for the Danish team as an alternative to the more commonly used "Danish Dynamite", already in those days when Olsen played as a captain.
However, at times he was forced to compromise from this principle, as the pool of players available in the relatively small nation did not always provide him viable substitute options.
Denmark qualified both for the World Cup and Euro , but despite impressive results in the group stage in both tournaments, especially the 2—0 win against reigning World Cup winners France in , Denmark did not manage to advance any further, and in both tournaments were clearly defeated with a score of 0—3 in the first round after the group stage.
At the World Cup, Denmark was defeated by England in the round of 16, and at Euro , they were eliminated in the quarter-finals against the Czech Republic.
Euro will also be remembered for an incident in the group stage match against Italy, where Italy star Francesco Totti was caught on camera spitting on Christian Poulsen , then subsequently the joint elimination of Italy by Denmark and Sweden in the last group stage match , when the two teams drew 2—2 following a Swedish goal in the 89th minute, making for the exact and famous result that would see the Italians eliminated, to the chagrin of the players.
For the World Cup qualification , Denmark was paired with, among others, World Cup bronze winners Turkey and Euro champions Greece competing for only one guaranteed spot at the final tournament.
Following a poor start of the qualification, Denmark was trailing both Turkey and surprise leaders Ukraine. Denmark needed Turkey to lose points in the final games in order for Denmark to clinch the second place of the group and one last chance to qualify via two playoff games.
Indeed, had Turkey dropped points to Albania in their last match, Denmark would have gone through, but instead, they had to settle for third place in the group and a longer summer break.
This suggestion was however refused by the DBU and the majority of coaches in the Danish Superliga , who still had trust in Olsen being the best coach for Denmark.
Despite a difficult group with both Portugal and Sweden as higher-ranked opponents, Denmark qualified for the World Cup by winning the group, after among other things, earning two wins against Sweden and one win and one draw against Portugal.
Denmark lost the first match 2—0 to Netherlands, but then had a vital 2—1 victory against Cameroon, which enabled further advancement in case of victory over Japan, in the last third match.
The game against Japan however ended with a 3—1 defeat, and thereby Denmark did not reach their objective of advancing to the round of In the qualification for Euro , Denmark was once again grouped with Portugal, among other countries.
For a second time, Denmark clinched first place in the group, and thereby qualified directly for the final tournament.
Out of eight qualifying matches, Denmark won six, drew one and lost one. Few gave Denmark a chance of proceeding to the second round before the tournament, but after upsetting Netherlands with a 1—0 victory, there was cause for optimism in the Danish camp.
However, a narrow 3—2 loss to Portugal meant Denmark would effectively need to defeat Germany in the last match to advance in the tournament.
Denmark was mostly praised after the tournament, considering Denmark had exceeded expectations and were close to advancing to the knockout stages despite being drawn in a difficult group.
Denmark failed to qualify for the next two tournaments under Olsen. They finished second in their World Cup qualifying group but failed to achieve a play-off berth as they were the "worst" of the UEFA group runners-up after excluding results against the bottom teams.
As of January , Olsen had a winning share of A Yussuf Poulsen goal in the second half secured three points for the Danes, leaving them well poised for qualification from the group.
Denmark faced Croatia in the round of 16 , with the Croats having claimed victory in Group D with three consecutive wins.
Apart from the national team, Denmark is equally famous for its traveling fans, known as roligans. The movement emerged during the s as the declared opposition to hooliganism.
The goal of the roligan movement is calm, yet cheerful, support during the matches, as " rolig " means "calm" in the Danish language.
However, the good reputation of the Danish supporters was sullied by the UEFA qualifier fan attack which occurred in June in the Euro qualifying match against Sweden when an enraged Danish supporter invaded the pitch and tried to attack the referee, following his decision to hand out a red card for Christian Poulsen and a penalty kick to Sweden in the last minute of the match.
The attacking fan was stopped by some of the Danish football players on the field before he reached the referee, but due to the episode, the match was immediately cancelled by the referee, with UEFA subsequently deciding to award a 0—3 default defeat to Denmark as punishment.
The countries have played against each other times, of which Denmark have won 40, drawn 20 and lost The first match between the teams was an 8—0 Denmark win in May Denmark won their first five matches against Sweden before their first defeat in October by the score 4—0.
Both teams advanced from the group stage and Denmark went on to win the tournament. In UEFA Euro the teams drew 2—2 in the last group stage match, ensuring that both teams advanced at the expense of Italy.
The reverse fixture ended in a goalless draw and Denmark failed to qualify for the final tournament. In the play-offs round of the qualification for UEFA Euro , Denmark lost against Sweden by 4—3 on aggregate and failed to qualify for the final tournament.
The most recent match between the countries was a goalless draw in June The team kit is produced by Danish company Hummel.

Prior to the period of Adidas sponsorship, the kit provider was also Hummel from to The first home match for the Denmark national team was a 2—1 friendly win over England on 25 May , taking place with 12, spectators at the stadium "KBs baner" located in the area "Granen", where the Forum Copenhagen later was built.
The stadium reached a record of 51, spectators for the 1—2 game against Sweden in June This first match in Parken was viewed by 40, spectators,  while the current stadium record of 42, spectators was set on 8 October for a World Cup qualifying match against Greece.
The capacity of the stadium was later reduced to 38, seats after the upper part of the D-side was converted from 4, extra seats into office and VIP areas in June However, meagre spectator support at some of the friendly matches at Parken, which from to attracted an acceptable average of 23, per match — but down to 9, for the friendly 3—1 win over Israel in April  — prompted the DBU to start hosting many of the friendly matches to other stadiums around Denmark.
Tickets to this match were sold out quickly, with almost 19, of the 20, tickets sold within the first hour of sale,  and was support-wise a big success with a total audience of 20, spectators.
The Poland match attracted only 11, spectators,  while the Portugal match only 13, spectators. Currently, while most of the friendly matches continue to be played at some of the smaller stadiums in Denmark, it has been decided to continue playing all of the qualifying matches for the European Championships and World Cup only at Parken Stadium.
For example, the friendly against Germany in August was played at Parken Stadium due to the general expectation of many spectators having a desire to watch the match.
