Denmark have been placed in the fabled 'Group of Death' where they will face three very tough opponents in Group B. They are aware that most pundits expect the Scandinavian nation to be steamrolled in the upcoming tournament.
But Liverpool defender Agger believes that epitaphs should never be written before the tournament.
"I play against such players every week in the Premier League, it is nothing new for me," Agger told Kicker.
He believes that his team have the technical ability and the defensive discipline required to ground out the results necessary to reach the quarter-final.
A minimum of two wins would be needed for that and so he warned that his side will be going all out for the win and could cause a shock or two against their talented opponents. The defender revealed that his defence had studied the moves of the famous players and have been doing their homework.
"We studied every team and know how they will attack us. Cristiano Ronaldo mainly springs from the left wing, [Robin] van Persie likes to run from deep, [Mario] Gomez and [Klaas-Jan] Huntelaar are fox-in-the-box types and [Miroslav] Klose cuts inside from both wings.
"If we play the attacking football we have displayed so far, an upset is on the cards," he warned.
The Danes won the competition 20 years ago despite being one of the weakest sides of the tournament. Any such repeat, however, does not appear to likely at this stage as Morten Olsen's side struggled in their most recent friendly against Brazil where they lost 3-1.
Agger refused to read too much into the friendly defeat as even the likes of Germany and Italy have lost in their recent games.
"I am not too concerned about those [results]," Agger told kicker.de
"We made a couple of individual errors which we should not have made against such an opponent, but we will seek to minimise those before the tournament starts. We must remain positive if we are to attain any success."
Denmark start their Euro 2012 campaign by playing World Cup runners-up Netherlands on June 9.
