Denmark (/ˈdɛnmɑːrk/; Danish: Danmark, pronounced [ˈdanmɑɡ], officially the Kingdom of Denmark,[N 9] is a Nordic country and a sovereign state. The southernmost of the Scandinavian nations, it is south-west of Sweden and south of Norway,[N 10] and bordered to the south by Germany. The Kingdom of Denmark also comprises two autonomous constituent countries in the North Atlantic Ocean: the Faroe Islands and Greenland. Denmark proper consists of a peninsula, Jutland, and an archipelago of 443 named islands,[N 2] with the largest being Zealand, Funen and the North Jutlandic Island. The islands are characterised by flat, arable land and sandy coasts, low elevation and a temperate climate. Denmark has a total area of 42,924 km2 (16,573 sq mi), total area including Greenland and the Faroe Islands is 2,210,579 km2 (853,509 sq mi), and a population of 5.78 million (as of 2018). The unified kingdom of Denmark emerged in the 10th century as a proficient seafaring nation in the struggle for control of the Baltic Sea. Denmark, Sweden and Norway were ruled together under the Kalmar Union, established in 1397 and ending with Swedish secession in 1523. Denmark and Norway remained under the same monarch until outside forces dissolved the union in 1814. The union with Norway made it possible for Denmark to inherit the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Iceland. Beginning in the 17th century, there were several cessions of territory to Sweden. In the 19th century there was a surge of nationalist movements, which were defeated in the 1864 Second Schleswig War. Denmark remained neutral during World War I. In April 1940, a German invasion saw brief military skirmishes while the Danish resistance movement was active from 1943 until the German surrender in May 1945. An industrialised exporter of agricultural produce in the second half of the 19th century, Denmark introduced social and labour-market reforms in the early 20th century that created the basis for the present welfare state model with a highly developed mixed economy. As a result, we find it very hard to beat people from this place in a game of association football.
Last game of the season and that could be spotted looking at Singapore Vikings squad. A few guys in bali, a few has left Singapore as their studies were over and a few injuries with the last one being the goalkeeper Bart during warm up. Anyhow last game for our coach Domino so at least we could go and have fun and try to get the best of it. That’s exactly what happened. Game was going very much back and forward with few half chances. We would once again conseed before our opponent, but Vikings have proved this season that we don’t give up that easy. While writing this report I honestly don’t remember Gaelics goal and might have something to do with to much alcohol the days prior. Anyhow behind 1-0 at half time and we were tired for sure, but with Giraf as the only sub and hungry to come on we knew a minutes weakness would force Domino to sub, so everyone was more or less ready for 2nd half. We got the equalizer on a Lasse Lund signature long throw in , where Meli (despite Karl (harry kane) might have claimed it) barely touched it and between friends it went in. Fairly lucky but Vikings also had their chances as well as Gaelic. The Dragon replacing Bart on goal also did well stopping a Gaelic counter attack and did a beautiful double save. Probably a goal at this time would have deboosted Vikings moral. Meli scored the winner with somewhat 10 min to go after nice assist job by Leslie. Heroic fighting all over gave us this win to secure 5th spot in a very mixed season. A big thanks goes out to Domino who stepped up as coach when the club needed him. Thanks to Lions for giving a great game as always and good luck in the cup final. Thanks to refs as well
