Denmark National Football Team Retro Shirt

In the 1970s Danish football started a revolution.

Until the beginning of the 70s football was considered as an amateur past-time in the Scandinavian country.
As a consequence, most of the best Danish players had to move from Denmark to make a living, so the national football team made little impression.

In 1971 the fact that a lot of football players of national team were playing abroad convinced the DBU to abolish the amateurism rule in 1971.
In 1977 for the first and only time in history a danish player won the Ballon d'Or: he was Allan Simonsen. Simonsen was playing in Borussia Mönchengladbach, winning the Uefa Cup in 1975 and 1979.
Probably this was one of the reasons to speed up the process, and in 1978 professional football players were allowed to play in the Danish league.
Finally, the DBU chose the German Sepp Piontek as the first professional coach of the national team in 1979.

Piontek was definitely a key factor in the emergence of the great Danish side of the 1980s, known as the "Danish Dynamite".
