The football revolution that Danish football underwent in the 1970s paved the way for the nation's emergence onto the world scene in the following decade. Despite the many good players produced in Denmark, football there had long and resolutely stuck to its amateur principles and as a consequence the national team had made little impression on the broader world game beyond the amateur Olympic football tournaments. Events in the 1970s brought change. Foreign-based professionals were allowed to play for the national team for the first time and by the end of the decade the domestic game itself became fully professional. Standards improved both on and off the pitch: the national team was packed with world class talent like Allan Simonsen, Henning Jensen, Morten Olsen and Preben Elkjaer while the hiring of German coach Sepp Piontek brought experience and know-how on the sidelines. The successful 'Danish Dynamite' era was just around the corner.
