FIFA – Poulsen one of five added as Denmark squad finalised

Denmark coach Kasper Hjulmand has announced his 26-man squad for the FIFA World Cup™.

Denmark did not appear at a FIFA World Cup until 1986 but, since then, they have been a regular at tournaments having qualified for six of the last ten, including Qatar 2022. They have also been a very successful Group Stage side, progressing four out of five times, and will be determined to make it five from six following an unstoppable qualification campaign and reaching the semi-final of EURO 2020.

Stars of this impressive Danish side undoubtedly include Kasper Schmeichel, Simon Kjaer, Christian Eriksen and Yussuf Poulsen. 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.
