  THE TAPESCRIPT

We Danes are so happy to be back at the World Cup Finals. It’s where we belong because we are such a strong footballing nation. You could call us a soccer-crazy country. We missed the 2006 Finals in Germany and that hurt. The whole country is behind our team. We are a small country but we really believe we can become world champions. We did really well in qualifying. We topped our group, finishing above our great rivals Sweden. That felt great. We also beat a great Portugal team 3-2. We are excited about the Finals because our team is full of big-name players from big European teams. When our team runs out on the pitch for the first game, our whole country will stop. Everyone will be cheering us on.
