Denmark put in a good performance against Netherlands on Monday, but the Danes were eventually beaten 2-0 in their World Cup opener. Shot stopper Thomas Sorensen has now taken the time to reflect on his side's loss and was far from satisfied.
"I’m a big believer that you make your own luck. Sure, we had a couple of unlucky bounces for the Dutch goals, but instead of complaining about that we should be looking at what we did wrong," said Sorensen to fifa.com.
"For the first goal, the header is a mistake, plain and simple, and on the second we would need to look at how the player [Eljero Elia] has got in behind on the inside of our full-back.
"It’s more important for us to fix mistakes like that than ask for better luck against Cameroon. The fact is the Dutch deserved to beat us. In the second half we just didn’t get going."
Denmark have a 49.3 per cent chance of surviving the group stage according to Castrol Football's 2010 FIFA World Cup Group Predictor.
