thumbnail Hello,

The Danes are heading home.

Denmark coach Morten Olsen was disappointed his side could not take advantage of their scoring chances after the 3-1 loss to Japan in their final World Cup group stage match.

The loss means that the Northern European nation will be heading home, as Japan and Holland qualify for the next stage of the tournament.

"We are naturally disappointed," Olsen stated to after the encounter. "We started the match well, and had the situation under control.

"But the difference this evening was that they took advantage of their opportunities and we did not.

"It was unnecessary that we have been eliminated. The whole game has been decided by these two free kicks," he concluded.
