Notes

Denmark had failed to qualify for the 1992 European Championship final tournament, finishing second behind Yugoslavia in their qualifying group.  But shortly before the tournament began, UEFA ousted Yugoslavia, and Denmark were summoned as the replacement.  The Danes hurriedly assembled a squad that, improbably, went on to win the championship.

Michel Laudrup refused to join the national team because of differences with coach Richard Møller Nielsen.  A second notable absentee was Jan Mølby, who was not selected after he also had differences with Nielsen.

*  Following the extra-time loss to Italy in the preliminary match and with the ensuing loss to Sweden in the consolation game, Denmark finished fourth and last in the Scania 100 Cup tournament, which served as a warmup for the host nation a year ahead of the European Championship 1992 final tournament.  The U.S.S.R. beat Sweden 3-2 after extra time in the other preliminary match, and Italy won the championship against the U.S.S.R. on penalty kicks 3-2 after a 1-1 extra-time draw.

**  The Faroe Islands lacked a pitch meeting UEFA standards and played all their home matches in the 1992 European Championship preliminary competition in Landskrona, Sweden.
