Club History

Denmark has always been a national team that loves the classic No. 10; and the current side has Tottenham attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen running the show. Eriksen has over 75 caps for the Danish national team and the playmaker has more tallied than 20 goals in that time. Manager Age Hareide’s team is currently ranked 12th by FIFA. Demark could be one of the most dangerous teams to play at the World Cup. The potential for the side is through the roof, but it will need its youthful forwards to score goals. RB Leipzig’s Yusssuf Poulsen and Atalanta’s Andreas Cornelius are two forwards that should get plenty of time in Russia. However, Hareide may decide to play veteran Nicklas Bendtner instead due to his international experience.
