Danish Dynamite: The Story of Football¿s Greatest Cult Team by Rob Smyth & Lars Eriksen & Mike Gibbons

The Denmark side of the 1980s was one of the last truly iconic international football teams. Although they did not win a trophy, they claimed something much more important and enduring: glory, and in industrial quantities. They were a bewitching fusion of futuristic attacking football, effortless Scandinavian cool and laid-back living.
