Denmark head to Euro 2012 facing a trio of gruelling fixtures.
To emerge from Group B and make the quarterfinals, they must eclipse the feats of at least two of the world's top five ranked nations, according to FIFA.
Germany, Holland and Portugal will all view Denmark as a vital three points, in what should prove to be the most competitive group at the Euros. Morten Olsen's men will be ranked as huge underdogs in each contest they face and will do well not to finish bottom of the pile.
The draw has been tough for the Danes to stomach, keen on re-announcing themselves on the world stage after enjoying another strong qualifying campaign.
Now up to 10th in the world themselves, it is incredibly harsh to be pitted alongside three teams listed above them, especially given that all three currently reside in the top five, while no side in Group A is ranked higher than Denmark.
Since shocking the world and winning the tournament in 1992, their four subsequent tournaments have only seen the Danish side make the final eight once (in 2004), something the nation was hoping to improve on this summer.
Here is the latest news emerging from the Danish camp, with just 19 days to go until their first fixture against Holland.
