Football is a sport where surprises are always present. Those who make 1xBet login online should try to bet on different squads, as sometimes they can give the shock of a lifetime. In the context of the Euro Cups, probably the biggest shock ever was when Greece won the 2004 edition in a legendary final against hosts Portugal. However, prior to that edition, the biggest shock so far was the title claimed by Denmark in the 1992 competition.
The competition took place in June 1992 in Sweden. This was the last Euro Cup to feature only 8 teams. Later editions would expand to 16 and then 24 squads. There were interesting situations with two of the participants of the cup, which were:
- the Soviet Union;
- and Yugoslavia.
The Soviet Union had recently broken up. However, they still participated in the competition as the CIS squad. On the other hand, the Yugoslavians had a bit more complicated situation. They also broke up, however, unlike the Soviets, they were having many issues. Eventually, UEFA decided to disqualify Yugoslavia and give that spot to the runner-up team of that qualifying group: Denmark. This occurred only 10 days prior to the beginning of the tournament.
The break up of these nations gave rise to many countries with interesting national teams. Among those squads available to those who login to 1xBet online there is Ukraine, Croatia, Serbia, Russia and many others. All of them are available for wagering.
A difficult road to glory
Denmark had an unconvincing start in the competition. First, they drew with England, later, they were defeated by the hosts Sweden by 1-0. In the last match of the group stage they had an extremely difficult match against none other than France. Those who use the 1xBet app can bet on all the European football teams, including the French team. Back then, many people thought that France would defeat the Danish and advance to the semi-finals alongside Sweden.
However, Denmark managed to play one of their best matches ever. They defeated France 2-1 and advanced to the semifinals with hosts Sweden. Curiously, the eliminated squads in that group were France and England.
Later, the Danish had a difficult match against the Netherlands. They had an incredible team with names like Ronald Koeman, Marco van Basten, Denis Bergkamp, and many others. After a highly exciting 120 minutes that ended 2-2, Denmark won in the penalty series.
The Danish team is currently a great team at the app for mobile devices of 1xBet, where people can bet on it. One of the reasons why it is so competitive is precisely because they won the 1992 Euro Cup. This came on the 26th of June of that year, where they defeated a powerful Germany 2-0.
