Frank Arnesen was full of praise for Denmark coach Morten Olsen as he believes he has instilled the right attitude into his players following their Euro 2012 win over Netherlands on Saturday.
The Hamburg sporting director was present at the match in Kharkiv as the Danes pulled off a surprise 1-0 victory over one of the pre-tournament favourites in Group B, and admitted that he would have been happy with a draw.
"He [Olsen] has provided them with faith and inspired them to show this enormous fighting spirit," Arnesen told Hamburger Morgen Post.
"Of course there was also a bit of luck because Netherlands had great chances.
"Normally we would have been content with a point. Therefore, it is incredible and unbelievable that it has become three.
"But I've noticed over the past 14 days that the boys have begun to believe in themselves. And this belief has been growing."
Arnesen acknowledged that it would be a struggle for Netherlands to qualify from the group now but was not ready to dismiss their chances, and urged the Danes to push on to the next stage.
"For Netherlands now it's really hard, but I don't want to write them off yet. They've played well.
"I even found [Wesley] Sneijder incredible. In addition, it is not the first time they have been in this situation.
"For the Danes the time is now to give everything in the group. I hope they make it."
