The former Ajax coach saw the positives in his side's performance in the loss to Joachim Low's men, but revealed his disappointment at missing out on a quarter-final berth

Denmark boss Morten Olsen has praised his side in the aftermath of their 2-1 defeat to Germany on Sunday evening, and believes there 'a future' in his young side despite seeing them crash out of Euro 2012.

The 62-year-old coach commended the display of Joachim Low's team, as goals from Lukas Podolski and Lars Bender gave Die Mannschaft the win in Lviv.

"I am disappointed [to have not qualified]," Olsen said in his post-match press conference. “You have to be. But I was not disappointed by the team. They delivered an incredible performance.

"We were up against the world's elite and we were in the game until the very end. When all is said and done, I think we have done very well. There is certainly a future in this team."

Denmark finished the tournament in third place in Group B with three points, having beaten the Netherlands on matchday one.
