The Danes aim to make another glorious moment and duplicate their 1992 performance as they take the Euro 2020 stage next year. Being undefeated in Group D and finishing in second place behind Switzerland during the qualification is a great way to start under new boss Kasper Hjulmand’s. Here is the potential XI of Denmark for the Euro 2020:
Lasse Schöne (Central midfield)
The Genoa midfielder Lasse Schöne is one of the veterans in the team. He made his full international debut in 2009 and was part of the Danish squad at UEFA Euro 2012 and the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The 33-year-old is a vital addition to the position and will surely take the spot for next year if he decided not to retire a year before the postponed tournament.
Thomas Delaney (Central midfield)
The Borussia Dortmund player Thomas Delaney was expected to be out of the starting team following an injury during the Euro 2020 qualifier against Republic of Ireland last year. However, with the tournament delayed for a year, Delaney will have a chance to recover his fitness. Along with Schöne, they made the central midfield as their fortress in the pitch.
Christian Eriksen (Attacking midfield)
The Spurs turned Inter Christian Eriksen holds one of the most vital positions on the side of the pitch. He is also a key man for the Danish team, hailing him as Danish Football Player of the Year a record five times. Eriksen scored twice as Denmark thrashed Gibraltar 6-0 in Euro 2020 qualifying last year. His creative and technical intelligence is needed for the team to advance in the tournament.
Yussuf Poulsen (Right wing)
Despite the poor form for RB Leipzig last season, YussufPoulsen is an important addition to the starting team, holding the position in the right wing. Poulsen offers a perfect pace in attack which is crucial to stretching defences. He is also one of the most flexible players in the team as he can play through the middle or out wide as a winger.
Martin Braithwaite (Left wing)
Although career did not flourish in Middlesbrough and later saw rising eyebrows when he signed for Barcelona, Martin Braithwaite is a key person for the national team. He scored the crucial goal against the Republic of Ireland during qualifying last year that sealed their qualification for next year’s event. That performance alone can bring him back to the starting team next year.
Kasper Dolberg (Striker)
The 2017 Dutch Footballer of the Year of the top-tier Dutch League Eredivisie and voted as the2020 OGC Nice Player of the Year, Kasper Dolberg has been one of the most successful Danish players in football. He scored five goals in 15 international outings for the Danes and his strong and smart plays is an advantage to the team to net goals for next year’s tournament.
