Hong Kong coach Kenny Lai Sun-cheung warned Denmark not to take his team lightly, saying they were fully capable of toppling the former European champions tomorrow. Lai said his 23-strong squad was ready to face their biggest test, insisting the home side had nothing to lose against the Danes. Hong Kong are hoping to reach the final of the Lunar New Year soccer extravanganza for the first time since 2002 and Lai was adamant his team can deliver the goods against the youthful Danes. 'We always have a chance against them [Denmark] because we play well at home and Denmark are in the middle of their winter break. They might not be as sharp as they should be,' said Lai. 'Their season starts in March and they will be looking for games to sharpen up their skills. Hopefully we will catch them off-guard and produce an upset win,' he said. In what appears to be a David and Goliath match with 117-ranked SAR taking on 13th-ranked Denmark, Lai said rankings would count for nothing. 'We have been training together before last Christmas so there has been continuity in getting the team together. We have been improving with each training session and we know we can spring a surprise.' Hong Kong's preparation for the Denmark match gathered momentum when the side defeated first division leaders Happy Valley 4-1 in a friendly on Wednesday. Lai said he was likely to field a 3-5-2 formation against the Danes with Cameroonian Gerard Ambassa Guy of Happy Valley playing a midfield role for the first time. 'JJ [Ambassa Guy] usually plays at the back and he recently played upfront in the Guangdong-Hong Kong Cup. He wasn't used to that position so we've decided to put him in front of the defenders to try to bolster the midfield. 'At first, we put him in midfield with Liu Quankun [Kitchee] but that didn't work out well. He's now going to partner Cheung Sai-ho [Happy Valley] and he feels much happy with Sai-ho because he can hold the ball and deliver the ball much better.'
