UNIX shells script to echo out the date value

I appreciate if someone answer this question for my learning purpose:

Given a filename structure of a COUNTRY CODE, file type, date (YYYYMMDD) and two digit attempt number with an extension of ".dat", write a UNIX shells script to echo out the date value.
Example: US_TRANSACTIONS_20090131_01.DAT would display 20090131
