Here are three thoughts on Germany's 2-1 victory over Denmark in Group B:
There were two things that the managers of Netherlands and Denmark agreed on before the teams met on a clammy Saturday evening in Kharkiv, Ukraine: The Dutch were the favorites, and their players are 'arrogant in a good way.'
Denmark produced the first major surprise of Euro 2012 as Morten Olsen's side secured a 1-0 win over the Netherlands in Kharkiv.
No side has lost more finals games in the history of the European Championship than Denmark, but then no side -- not even Greece -- has ever won the tournament in more unlikely circumstances. Denmark hadn't even qualified for the Euros in 1992, but as war tore through Yugoslavia, it was called up a fortnight before the tournament as a replacement and went on to beat Germany in the final. A repeat is highly unlikely this time round, particularly given a dreadfully tough first-round group, but this is a young and talented Danish side that might just unsettle a few more fancied names. Morten Olsen has already been in charge for 12 years and has just signed a two-year extension, which says much for his belief in the potential of his side. In fact, he believes it has a greater chance to make an impression at the World Cup in 2014 than in Poland-Ukraine. It shouldn't go unnoticed that while Portugal is more fancied, Denmark beat the Portuguese 2-1 in its final qualifier to finish three

Biking the back lanes of the island of Aero, I came to a lonely little church. Wandering through its graveyard, I noticed the names on every tombstone ended in "sen." The inscriptions, such as "Here lies Christian Hansen at anchor with his wife.

Aero is the kind of island where baskets of strawberries sit in front of farmhouses -- for sale on the honor system. And bikes don't come with locks.
