Lucky11| FIFA World Cup 2022: Denmark Squad Analysis
For the sixth time in their history, Denmark will compete in the World Cup. They participated for the first time in the 1986 Mexico edition, where they miraculously advanced to the knockout rounds by winning all three of their group-stage matches, including a 2-0 victory over the formidable West Germans.
Although they reached the quarterfinals in the 1998 edition, that was their best showing. They lost to Brazil in the round of eight after a fiercely contested match that concluded 3-2.
Without the drama of Christian Eriksen's horrific collapse, Denmark will try to replicate their emotionally charged march to the Euro 2020 semifinals in Qatar.
Hjulmand's first-choice goalie is Kasper Schmeichel. The seasoned goalie, who serves as one of the team's leaders, performed admirably for Denmark in both the Nations League and World Cup qualifiers.
The second- and third-choice keepers are likely to be Union Berlin's Frederik Ronnow and Hertha BSC's Oliver Christensen.
In the event that the athlete has any fitness concerns, the coach has Jesper Hansen, Daniel Iversen, and Peter Jensen as backup possibilities.
Depending on the opponent and the available players, Hjulmand has experimented with a number of defensive formations. He used a simple back four in the Nations League match against France in September, but switched to a back-five against Croatia.
Along with the seasoned Simon Kjaer, Joachim Andersen of Leicester City and Andreas Christensen of Barcelona have primarily been employed at the center of the defense. Victor Nelsson, 23, is another capable center-back option and ought to be traveling to Qatar.
At right-back, Rasmus Kristensen appears to be the front-runner, while Joakim Maehle of Atlanta is the go-to choice.
While Alexander Bah, a potential player who is flourishing at Benfica, is another trustworthy full-back who contributes experience to the team, Jens Larsen is another.
Hjulmand enjoys experimenting with his midfield options, much like his defense.
Christian Eriksen serves as the number 10 in some of his five-man midfield formations. He has also used a flat four in the middle of the field and a bank of three players.
At the center of the field, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Thomas Delaney are the traditional suspects, and Christian Eriksen is employed to provide creativity in the attacking third.
Another excellent attacking midfielder, Jesper Lindstrom, will be competing for a spot in the World Cup squad after excelling with Frankfurt in the Bundesliga.
Rasmus Hojlund of Atalanta or Kasper Dolberg of Sevilla are probable replacements for Martin Braithwaite as the line-leader.
The majority of the time, Andreas Olsen, Robert Skov, and Mikkel Damsgaard are placed on the flanks.
At a major event like the World Cup, the expertise of two seasoned players like Yussuf Poulsen and Andreas Cornelius will be crucial.
However, the latter is finding it difficult to play at Leipzig now that Timo Werner has joined, and his participation is still in question.
