Joy Sports Euro Moments – When Denmark beat Germany to win Euro ’92

first_imgWELCOME to the ”ª#‎JoySports”¬ buildup to UEFA EURO 2016, which kicks off on June 10 in France. Every day from today until kickoff, we will bring you a blast from the past Euro tournaments. Our coverage is brought to you by Pepsi.Twenty-four years ago, Denmark were given just over a week’s notice to get a squad prepared for the Euro ’92. Less than a month later, the underdogs were champions.Their surprise inclusion came after Yugoslavia, in a state of civil war, were not allowed to participate in the tournament.The Danes had missed out on qualification having finished as runners-up to Yugoslavia, but they now found themselves thrown into the eight-team tournament and placed in a group featuring hosts Sweden, England and France.Kim Vilfort proved to be one of the unlikely heroes for Denmark during the fortnight and he told the media in 2012 that his team-mates were better prepared than some had initially thought. “There were those who didn’t believe we would be included, but we were aware of small talk that this could be the situation,” said the 53-year-old former midfielder.”Then we got the news. There was no discussion. Denmark had to participate in the tournament. It wasn’t possible to say ‘no’ because it would not have helped the relationship between Uefa and the Danish Football Association.”But we had a good team. We’d beaten Yugoslavia in the group stages and had been scheduled to play the CIS [team of former Soviet Union states] the week before the start of the competition.”With the minds of the players hastily focused, it was time for the tournament and Vilfort reckons Denmark were in a no-lose situation. “We couldn’t fail because there were no expectations. If we lost 5-0 three times then that would not have mattered,” he continued.But the story unfolded like this: A 0-0 draw against England, followed by defeat by Sweden. Going into the crunch match against France, the Danes still had a chance of qualification.Vilfort said of the France game: “We played without nerves because we thought we’d be going home.”Coach Richard Moller Nielsen’s men won the match 2-1, with goals from Henrik Larsen and Lars Elstrup.Vilfort himself missed the match against France as he was visiting his seven-year-old daughter Line, who was fighting leukaemia. Sadly, she lost her battle after the tournament. Heavyweights England and France were now out of the tournament, but next up for Danes were holders Netherlands, who were outstanding favourites to brush aside their opponents.However, the Danes battled valiantly and it was 2-2 after 90 minutes, with Larsen grabbing two more goals. A scoreless extra-time followed, so penalties loomed.The Netherlands hero of 1988, Marco van Basten, had his saved by Peter Schmeichel. It was the only spot-kick failure and defender Kim Christofte eventually sealed Denmark’s berth in the final.Vilfort described the contest as “one of the best matches for the national team” he had played, but admitted his defensive-minded side then had “some luck in the final” against Germany.The world champions had beaten the hosts 3-2 in a thrilling semi-final having qualified from Group B along with the Dutch. They dominated the opening quarter of the final and Schmeichel, who had signed for Manchester United the previous year, was again the hero for the Danes, saving from Karl-Heinz Riedle, Stefan Reuter and Guido Buchwald.The next chance fell to Denmark, and to John Jensen.The Brondby central midfielder had only scored one goal in his first 48 internationals, but grabbed his second with a spectacular strike from the right-hand corner of the area.It rocked Germany. With 11 minutes remaining, the emotion turned to shock.Vilfort surged to the edge of the area, eluded the challenge of two defenders before drilling in Denmark’s second goal via the foot of the post. His team-mates piled on top of the midfielder and the fairytale was complete.Vilfort pointed to the strong bond in the squad as to why they had triumphed against expectations.”Ten of the players we had in the squad either played for or had previously played for Brondby. A year before the Euros, Brondby had got to the semi-finals of the Uefa Cup – that was a big thing for a Danish club.”Quite a few members of the squad had also been played for the Under 21s and the Olympic team, who had qualified for South Korea in 1988. “We had fantastic spirit. The team wanted to win and that’s a very good thing when you’re at the highest level. When we were under pressure against Germany, it was the spirit that helped us.”We didn’t have the best players, but we had the best team.”*CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO VERSION OF THIS STORYREAD: When Germany broke England hearts at Euro 1996 semifinal—The #JoySports Euro buildup series is brought you by Pepsi, Still 1 Ghana cedi pε!last_img read more

Dodgers hit six home runs, survive slugfest with Rockies

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error This time, Buehler gave up a career-high seven runs and 13 hits in 5-2/3 innings. He had never given up more than eight hits in a big-league game before this.“It’s different. But I just wasn’t good enough. It wasn’t the park’s fault,” Buehler said. “I didn’t have a good slider, didn’t command the ball the way I needed to. They were aggressive early in the counts and hit some pitches that caught too much of the plate.“I mean, you want to be the same person (despite the different ballpark). You want to walk in and push all of that out of your head. But … the first hitter of the game I threw a slider and it felt exactly the same but it ended up in the middle. Those things happen here. You just have to be finer. I just didn’t have the command to do that today.”The tone for the night was set in the second inning when newly-anointed All-Star starter Cody Bellinger hit a fly ball to the wall in center field. Rockies outfielder David Dahl ran it down and got his glove on it just short of the wall – only to deflect it over the wall for a home run. There was going to be no denying the offenses.Muncy didn’t need any help when he hit the next pitch 414 feet into the right-field seats. That was a short shot compared to the one he planted in the third deck during batting practice.“This is one of the few places where I really try to let it eat in batting practice,” said Muncy, who reached the same heights during a batting practice round in Colorado last season. “I guess we knew it was flying at that point.”In the fifth inning, the Dodgers went back to back again. This time, they were both opposite-field shots. Alex Verdugo lined a two-run home run into the left-field seats and Justin Turner followed with a drive over the scoreboard in right field.“This is as much as I’ve seen the ball carry,” Roberts said. “I think the heat (93 degrees at game time), obviously elevation. This is probably as good as I’ve seen the conditions for a hitter.“I know Alex hit it decent. And Justin hit it decent. But it carried the wall.”On and on it went, with an RBI double here, a two-run triple there.Muncy’s second home run – a two-run poke to the opposite field on an 0-and-2 count – gave the Dodgers an 8-7 lead in the top of the seventh. Yimi Garcia gave it right back when he surrendered a solo home run to Ryan McMahon in the bottom of the inning.Finally, in the ninth, the Dodgers got to closer Wade Davis – who somehow escaped any of last week’s walk-off scars. Davis walked Muncy with one out – which seemed prudent until Matt Beaty followed with a single and Taylor floated the go-ahead RBI single over first baseman Daniel Murphy’s head.Two batters later, Hernandez came off the bench as a pinch-hitter and drove a 2-and-2 pitch over the wall in straightaway center field for a three-run home run.“Everyone I think was probably in agreement about that today,” Muncy said. “With the hot weather, it seemed like the ball just never came down today. There were a lot of balls that just stayed up.” It turned a little for Dodgers starter Walker Buehler, who had one of his best starts as a big-leaguer when he faced the Rockies last week at Dodger Stadium. He pitched a complete game, allowing just three hits and striking out a career-high 16.That dominant pitcher disappeared into thin air Thursday.Related Articles In other words – Coors Field baseball.“Take a lead, give it back, keep going, keep plugging away, putting at-bats together, hitting the ball out of the ballpark,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said in a summary that would apply for almost any game at Coors Field.The venue hasn’t really mattered, though. Thursday’s win was the Dodgers’ 12th straight over the Rockies, tied (with a 12-game run over the Mets in 2016-18) for their second-longest run of domination against a single opponent. The Los Angeles franchise record is 16 consecutive wins over the San Diego Padres in 1973-74.This was the fourth consecutive one of those wins to be decided in the ninth inning or later.“The worm will turn, I know that,” Black said Thursday. “It’s frustrating to lose any game no matter who you play. Right now things are going their way. … But the worm will turn.” How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies center_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco PreviousLos Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Kenley Jansen reacts after retiring Colorado Rockies’ Garrett Hampson for the final out of a baseball game Thursday, June 27, 2019, in Denver.
