Denmark coach Kasper Hjulmand has announced his 26-man squad for the FIFA World Cup™.
Stars of this impressive Danish side undoubtedly include Kasper Schmeichel, Simon Kjaer, and Christian Eriksen. Eriksen and Kjaer bring almost 250 caps between them to Qatar, and will be leading figures in this otherwise youthful squad.
Barcelona’s Andreas Christensen had been a doubt after suffering a sprained ankle but, having returned to the pitch in early November, the former Chelsea man is included.
Denmark face Tunisia in their first game of the tournament on 22 November before taking on familiar World Cup foes, France and Australia.
