Denmark and the Czech Republic are both out of Euro2000 and will only be playing for pride.

Denmark haven't scored a goal in their previous two games, against France and Holland, and have let in six; three in each game. Peter Schmeichel intends to continue his international career after Euro96, but if he lets in three again perhaps he should think about calling it a day; for the sake of Denmark.

The Czechs, by contrast, have had seemingly close matches against both the hosts and the current World Champions. Would things have been different had Patrik Berger not been suspended for the opening two matches -- for a sendng-off against the Faeroe Islands -- or if one of the opening games was at least against Denmark?

We'll see tonight just how good the Euro96 runners-up are when the match means nothing.

Denmark Team:
1-Peter Schmeichel
2-Michael Schjonberg, 3-Rene Henriksen, 5-Jan Heintze, 6-Thomas Helveg
8-Jesper Gronkjaer, 14-Brian Steen Nielsen, 15-Stig Tofting, 17-Bjarne Goldbaek
9-Jon Dahl Tomasson, 21-Mikkel Beck

Czech Team:
1-Pavel Srnicek
2-Tomas Repka, 5-Milan Fukal, 19-Karel Rada
4-Pavel Nedved, 7-Jiri Nemec, 8-Karel Poborsky, 13-Radek Bejbl, 17-Vladimir Smicer
10-Jan Koller, 20-Patrik Berger

Referee: Gamal El Ghandour (Egypt)

The Match:
Denmark will be remembered as the team with no goals and no points in Euro2000.

The Danes may think Norway are boring, but at least the Norwegians scored a goal and earned 4 points.

The Czech Republic scored the only goal of the game in the 62nd minute. Smicer scoring from Poborsky's cross.

Result: Denmark 0 -- Czech Republic 1
