Denmark is a small nation with a population of a little under six million. They are the smallest country in Scandinavia and they have qualified for the 2010 FIFA World Cup for only the fourth time in their history.


The Team: Denmark have a talented squad and have many players to choose from.

Their goalkeeper is Stoke City stopper Thomas Sorensen, who is pretty decent goalkeeper.

Their defence is one of great talent with players like Daniel Agger, Lars Jacobsen, and young Palermo starlet Simon Kjaer just to name a few.

Denmark's midfield is also good with players like Christian Poulsen, Daniel Jensen, and Thomas Kahlenberg in their mind set.

Denmark's attack is a very experienced as well as goal scoring attack force. Dennis Rommedahl, Jon Dahl Tommason and Martin Jorgensen are the old timers of the squad but they share an impressive total of 79 goals between them.

They also have the up-and-coming Nicklas Bendtner who is 21, has already made 30 appearances for his national team, and has scored a respectable 10 goals in those 30 appearances.


Chances At World Cup: I expect Denmark to do very well this year at the World Cup. Their older players will be looking to impress and play well in their last ever World Cup possibly and my expectation is for Denmark to reach the Round of 16 indefinitely and if luck is on their side, possibly reach the Quarter Final.
