Denmark World Cup 2022 squad list, matches and current odds

Judging by their performance at the last World Cup, Denmark will hope to progress through the group stage.

The Danes have a new aura of meaning that goes beyond football since their star midfielder Christian Eriksen collapsed with cardiac arrest during the Euro 2020 game against Finland.

Coach Kasper Hjulmand, who was praised for his heroism that day, led his team to the semi-finals against England, with Gareth Southgate’s men emerging victorious.

This time, the team hopes to make their mark on the world stage.

Squad for the 2022 World Cup in Denmark

World Cup squads are usually announced about six weeks before the start of the World Cup. This year the world championships will take place from November 21st to December 18th.

While the final squad hasn’t been announced yet, here’s who featured in June’s internationals.

Big names likely to feature include Kasper Schmeichel, Eriksen, Thomas Delaney, Mikkel Damsgaard, Joakim Maehle and captain Simon Kjær.

Who are likely to be the stars of the squad?

We have to start with Eriksen, who has been in brilliant form since recovering from his horror heart scare two years ago.

The Manchester United midfielder has exceeded expectations on international duty, scoring a stunning goal for Denmark in September’s UEFA Nations League game against Croatia.

Next up must be Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, a midfield workhorse who has impressed in the Premier League for Tottenham Hotspur and represented his country at Euro 2020.
