Daniel Agger is anxious for Denmark's 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ campaign to get started, and says he and is team-mates are targeting nothing less than a win against the Netherlands on Monday.
The Netherlands are the clear favourites to top Group E, while the Danes are widely expected to be competing for second place along with Japan and Cameroon. The Scandinavians could be forgiven for looking to take at least a point from their opening game. But that is not the case according to Liverpool defender Agger.
There are four teams in the group and everybody's competing for those top two places, not only Holland.
He said: "We're looking forward to getting started. There are four teams in the group and everybody's competing for those top two places, not only Holland, the other teams as well. A team like us is always going out to win and it's the same against Holland. We'll be trying to win the game."
His team-mate Jesper Gronkjaer was slightly more circumspect, warning that their opponents are amongst the favourites for the title. "They are a very good team, a very young team with players who play all around Europe at big teams. They are surely one of the favourites to win the World Cup. It will be a hard task for us, even though we will be going in to win the game. If we can get something out of the game we will be happy."
