At the latest World Championship the Danish national women brought home the bronze medal by defeating Poland in the match for 3rd place. This was the first time the Danes won a medal since 1997 when the country had its up until now only gold medal. In total, Denmark has won five sets of medals in World Championship history - including three in three consecutive championships in the mid 1990s.
After having been at the helm of the Danish team for 17 years, Jan Pytlick has been replaced by Klavs Bruun Jørgensen, who has launched a new style of play. Not least in defense, which is now both offensive and aggressive.
As far as attacking is concerned the Danes still pursue a creative game at a technically high level. Just as the Danes as always aim to score many goals in their counter-attacks.
Domestic ground can be a great advantage for the Danish team and the ambition is clearly to win yet another medal.
