Denmark announces squad for next 2 qualifiers
Christian Poulsen, Dennis Rommedahl, Michael Krohn-Dehli and
Thomas Kahlenberg were selected Tuesday in Denmark’s squad for the
2012 European Championship qualifiers against Portugal and
Thomas Sorensen returned to the squad after missing Denmark’s
1-0 win over Iceland in its opening qualifier due to a sore left
elbow. He was replaced by newcomer Anders Lindegaard, who was also
selected for the Oct. 8 game against Portugal and versus Cyprus
four days later.
Liverpool’s Daniel Agger, Per Kroldrup of Fiorentina and Simon
Kjaer of Wolfsburg were chosen in defense.
Coach Morten Olsen says he will add three more players to his
20-man squad later this week as he is still without key striker
Nicklas Bendtner due to a groin injury.
Norway leads Group H, followed by Denmark, Cyprus, Portugal and
Iceland. Portugal produced indifferent performances in a 1-0 loss
at Norway and a 4-4 draw at home against lowly Cyprus.
