Denmark

The Denmark team will aim for their Maiden FIFA World Cup title in Russia. Denmark is placed in Group C of the 2018 FIFA World Cup alongside Australia, France and Peru. Let’s have a look at the performance of the team in FIFA World Cups.

The Denmark team has announced it’s squad having Captain along with Goalkeepers, Defenders, Midfielders and Forwards and the team will be managed by Coach. Here you can get more details about the Denmark Squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Denmark’s qualifying campaign for the 2018 World Cup was a crescendo, starting abysmally as new coach Age Hareide struggled to impose his ideas, but rising to the brilliance of a 5-1 away triumph in the concluding play-off game. It is surely the best trajectory towards the nation’s fifth World Cup finals. While this side do not possess the vivid quality of the 1986 “Dynamite” team or the 1998 side that reached the quarter-finals, in Christian Eriksen they have a player every opponent will respect and fear. Optimism is high in a happy squad of underdogs who believe they can cause some shocks at the tournament as the most accomplished of the Scandinavian trio of nations.
