Euro 2012: Cristiano Ronaldoâ€™s Portugal Paired With Denmark Again
The draws for the qualification stages ahead of Euro 2012 were conducted on Sunday, February 7th 2010 and Cristiano Ronaldoâ€™s Portugal fell in a five-team table.
Iceland, Norway, Cyprus, and Denmark again will be their opponents.
How tough will this group be for the 2004 European Championship runners-up?
During the 2010 World Cup qualifiers, Denmark shocked Portugal by defeating them 3-2 before drawing 1-1 with them in Copenhagen.
The Danes eventually topped Group A with Cristiano Ronaldoâ€™s Portugal dramatically securing a play-off place.
However, looking at Portugalâ€™s table in general, manager Carlos Queiroz declared:
â€œIt is a good group for us. Weâ€™ll be playing teams that have a different style of football. This group will produce good performances and it will be exciting, and I think that we can qualify.
â€œWe need to prepare well as always, but I think that in the end, we will reach the finals of the European Championship.â€
From Group H where Portugal have been drawn, every Cristiano Ronaldo fan will like to see the Portuguese national team competing in Euro 2012. Is Denmark going to pose another serious threat?
