De Rød-Hvide will be among the dark horses for the trophy.

With a strong campaign in Euro 2020 where they reached the semi-finals, Denmark is in excellent form for the tournament after securing three consecutive wins in their recent matches. With the right balance of experience and youth in the setup, Kasper Hjulmand’s side has the ability to challenge any team.

Drawn in Group C, where they will face England, Serbia, and Slovenia, Denmark will be the center of attention this time around. Expectations are high. The first match of the tournament is against England at Deutsche Bank Park, where they will be looking to avenge their semi-final loss from last year.
