Morten Olsen has hailed the determined performance that gave Denmark a shock win over Holland at Euro 2012.

Michael Krohn-Dehli's goal against the run of play in the first half was enough to give the Danes a famous win over a below-par Dutch side.

The men in orange were made to pay for not converting possession and chances into goals, with Arjen Robben coming closest when he struck the post before half-time.

The Dutch noticeably upped the tempo after the break, but Olsen's side held on and were good value for a famous victory.

"If you want to beat one of these teams, you need to play at a high level," said Olsen, whose side now face Portugal on Wednesday.

"We needed a good team performance and that's what happened. Of course, the Dutch had a lot of chances, but so did we.

"The most important thing was that we trusted our own way of playing football, which is very important against a team like Holland. It showed how and why we qualified for this tournament."
