Netherlands Vs. Denmark, Euro 2012: Lineups

Euro 2012's Group of Fiery, Fiery Doom is under way in less than an hour, and it's kicking off with a solid Holland team against a Denmark side that could actually be quite good if Christian Eriksen shows up and his supporting cast gives him some help.

Sure, the Netherlands would be favourites to top this group if it didn't include Germany, but that doesn't mean they're not beatable. A quick look at their defense will give the Danes some hope of pulling off an upset victory. If they want to maintain that hope, they should attempt to avoid reading the names that play higher up the pitch.

Holland (4-2-3-1): Maarten Stekelenburg; Jetro Willems, Ron Vlaar, John Heitinga, Gregory van der Wiel; Nigel de Jong, Mark van Bommel; Ibrahim Affellay, Wesley Sneijder, Arjen Robben; Robin van Persie.

Denmark (4-2-3-1): Stephan Andersen; Simon Poulsen, Simon Kjaer, Daniel Agger, Lars Jacobsen; William Kvist, Niki Zimling; Michael Krohn-Dehli, Christian Eriksen, Dennis Rommedahl; Nicklas Bendtner.
