DENMARK UPSETS NETHERLANDS IN EURO 2012

Just the second day of EURO 2012 and the big upset starts as Denmark defeated Netherland by 1-0 in group B encounter. The Netherlands dominated this match in attack, with 28 shots, but failed to score and they were undone by Michael Krohn-Dehli's terrific 24th-minute finish, as Denmark got their campaign off to a perfect start. Netherlands are understandably disconsolate, they paid the price for not taking their chances, especially Robin van Persie. Everyone knew Group B would be tough but few foresaw this.

Some statistics are as follows:

Ball Possession:                DENAMRK     43%   -        NETHERLAND     57%

Attempts on target:                   8                         -               8

Saves:                                           3                         -               5

Goals:                                            1                         -               0
