...og det var Danmark (Mads Kamp Thulstrup, Carsten Søsted, DK, 2008)
Foto: Per Kjærbye

The story of the Danish national football team's rise to glory in the period 1979-92, and the team's transformation from amateurs to heroes. The audience gets to relive the magic moments from the biggest games and an opportunity to meet the heroes of the period, like we have never met them before: Simonsen, Laudrup, Povlsen and Elkjær. The team's three coaches are at the centre of rotation, and in their own way define the period. The film starts with Kurt 'Nikkelaj Nielsen's' departure in 1979. The young and ambitious German Sepp Piontek is introduced, followed by Richard Møller Nielsen, who succeeded in winning the European Championship in 1992.
