Denmark coach Morten Olsen says he is renewing his contract with the Danish soccer federation for another two years.

Olsen, who has been coaching Denmark since 2000, says he wants "to be in the spot where one's team is playing heroic."

Under the 60-year-old former international, Denmark has qualified for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, the 2004 European championship and the 2002 World Cup.

Olsen is the first Dane to reach 100 national team matches both as a player and as a coach.

He has now renewed his contract with the Danish Football Association four times.
