World Cup 2022: Everything you need to know about Denmark

 

Denmark made its second consecutive World up after missing out in 2014 and 2006, and Christian Eriksen will be on the squad once again.

Eriksen went into cardiac arrest during the nation’s UEFA Euro match last year, which for many would’ve ended their careers. However, he returned eight months later with an implanted cardioverter-defibrillator and has been on the field ever since.

He’s a five-time Danish Football Player of the Year and is the key for Denmark to move on from the group stage. Denmark was in the Round of 16 in 2018 – a mark the team reached three times. They were in the quarterfinals in 1998. The team went undefeated with one draw in 10 qualifying matches.
