Kharkiv (Ukraine): Losing 1-0 to Denmark at Euro 2012 Saturday was like something out of a bad movie, Netherlands midfielder Arjen Robben said.

The Netherlands' wayward finishing saw many good chances go begging as the Danes stole an unlikely win through Michael Krohn-Dehli's first-half strike.

'It looked like a very bad movie,' he said. The Danes will not believe their luck, Robben said.

'They will ask themselves when they're in bed: 'How did we win this?' It was no disgrace, but it is a setback, a miracle. It looked like a very bad movie.'

Robben was a member of the Bayern Munich side that lost last season's Champions League final to Chelsea on penalties despite dominating the game, and said the Denmark defeat had brought bad memories of that result.

'I don't want to talk about the Champions League final too much, but this looked like it very much,' he said.

In the next round of games in Group B Wednesday, the Danes can secure a place in the quarterfinals by beating Portugal, while the Netherlands face Germany.
