Denmark Football Trivia Questions

1. Denmark finished second in their qualifying group for Euro 1992 but still played in the tournament anyway. What was the reason that Denmark qualified?

From Quiz
Against All Odds: Denmark's Euro 1992 Triumph

Answer: They replaced a team that had been banned from the tournament

Denmark were placed into Group 4 of qualification alongside Yugoslavia, Northern Ireland, Austria and the Faroe Islands. Despite a very successful campaign which saw the Danes win six of their eight qualifiers, they finished a point behind Yugoslavia and only group winners qualified for the 8-team tournament. However, it appears luck was on Denmark's side. The Yugoslav wars broke out in March 1991 and by spring of 1992, the fighting in Bosnia and Herzegovina had become so intense and bloody that the United Nations passed Security Council Resolution 757 in May, condemning the Yugoslav authorities for failing to stop the conflict. Just a day after the resolution was passed, FIFA and UEFA suspended Yugoslavia from competitive football and Denmark took their spot.
