    • Synopsis
    • A comedy of underdogs, based on the true story of how Richard Nielsen, the Danish football manager, united his unprepared, mismatched team of national superstars and nobodies to win against the reigning world champions, Germany, in the 1992 European Championship Finals.

      Knocked out of the championship in the playoff stages, the Danish football team choose to drown their woes by throwing themselves into a summer of leisure – no exercise, no training, no football.

      However, when Yugoslavia is forced to forfeit its place in the tournament, the Danes suddenly find themselves wrenched back from their freedom, and only a week from facing some of the world’s best teams and players.
