Though not a team many fans consider to have a chance at winning the tournament, their roster is full of players applying their talents at some of the world’s top clubs. Unfortunately, they were placed in the group of death. Nevertheless, Denmark could easily play spoiler for one of Europe’s top teams.


Martin Olsen

Standout players:

Nicklas Bendtner – Thinks he is one of the best forwards in the world, and while he is physically impressive, at 6’5″ and can jump out of the stadium, he never lived up to his own hype at Arsenal FC and now is struggling at Sunderland. Look for him to get plenty of playing time to prove the doubters wrong.

Daniel Agger-  A no-nonsense central defender who applies his trade for Liverpool FC in England. His consistent club performances have landed him a regular starting spot on the back line replacing the Kop legend Jamie Carragher.

Simon Kjaer – Currently plays for Roma in Rome, Italy, and was one of the hottest transfer market commodities after quality performances in South Africa at the World Cup in 2010. This central defender has the talent to play for almost any team in the world.
