The Denmark national football team is the national association football team of Denmark and is controlled by the Danish Football Association (DBU), the governing body for football in Denmark. Denmark's home ground is Parken Stadium in the Østerbro district of Copenhagen, and their head coach is Kasper Hjulmand.

Since 1983, the team has continuously been visible as a solidly competitive side, with the triumph in the 1992 European Championship in Sweden as its most prominent victory, defeating defending champions the Netherlands in the semi-final and Germany in the final. Their best FIFA World Cup result was achieved in 1998, where they narrowly lost 3–2 in a quarter-final against Brazil.
