The Denmark national football team (Danish: Danmarks fodboldlandshold) represents Denmark in men’s international football competition. It is controlled by the Danish Football Association (DBU), the governing body for the football clubs which are organised under DBU. Denmark’s home stadium is Parken Stadium in the Østerbro district of Copenhagen; their head coach is Kasper Hjulmand.
Denmark were the winners of the Football at the 1906 Intercalated Games and silver medalists at the 1908 and 1912 Olympics. However, as amateurs who prohibited their internationals from becoming professionals at foreign clubs, Denmark did not qualify for the FIFA World Cup until 1986, although they won another Olympic silver in 1960.
Denmark has remained competitive in international tournaments. Triumph in the 1992 European Championship in Sweden marked the team’s most prominent victory, defeating defending champions the Netherlands in the semi-final and Germany in the final. They also won the 1995 King Fahd Cup, defeating Argentina in the final. Their best World Cup result was achieved in 1998, where they narrowly lost 3–2 in a quarter-final against Brazil. Denmark also made the second round in 1986, 2002 and 2018.

Denmark FIFA World Cup 2022 Coach (Manager) Kasper Hjulmand
Kasper Hjulmand is a Danish football manager and a former player. He is the head coach for the Denmark national team.
A defender, Hjulmand began his career with Randers Freja in 1987 where he played four years, and then signed with Herlev IF in the winter of 1992. He played with Herlev IF two seasons and then moved to B.93 in the winter of 1995. He also played for the North Florida Ospreys in 1994, scoring six goals in 18 appearances. After three seasons with B93 at the age of 26 Hjulmand was forced to retire as a football player due to a knee injury.
In June 2019, it was announced that Hjulmand would replace Åge Hareide as manager of the Denmark national football team, when Hareide’s contract expired after the UEFA Euro 2020 tournament. Hareide did not lead the team at the Euro 2020, since the tournament was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the Euro 2020, he led Denmark to reach the semi-finals, in which they lost 2–1 after extra-time and a controversial penalty against England.
