Denmark Starting Eleven

Denmark’s World Cup qualifying campaign was a story of comeback and triumph. Not only did they come back to the World Cup after not qualifying in 2014, they did so with flourish! A 5-1 away game against Ireland, Denmark is on its best trajectory to World Cup.

Denmark's 35-man preliminary squad

Kasper Schmeichel, Jonas Lossl, Frederik Ronow, Jesper Hansen; Simon Kjaer, Andreas Christensen, Mathias Jorgensen, Jannik Vestergaard, Andreas Bjelland, Henrik Dalsgaard, Peter Ankersen, Jens Stryger, Riza Durmisi, Jonas Knudsen, Nicolai Boilesen; William Kvist, Thomas Delaney, Lukas Lerager , Lasse Schone, Mike Jensen, Christian Eriksen, Daniel Wass, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Mathias Jensen, Michael Krohn-Dehli, Robert Skov; Pione Sisto , Martin Braithwaite, Andreas Cornelius, Viktor Fischer, Yussuf Poulsen, Nicolai Jorgensen, Nicklas Bendtner, Kasper Dolberg, Kenneth Zohore

Our predictions for the starting 11 against Peru:

  • Schmeichel
  • Stryger
  • Kjaer
  • Boilsen
  • Knudsen
  • Schone
  • Delaney
  • Cornelius
  • Eriksen
  • Sisto
  • Bendtner

The Danish team will likely play in 4-3-3 formation, which gives Eriksen the space to operate behind a main striker and two wide men. Players to watch? Christian Eriksen will be hard to miss after his 11 goals in 12 matches during last year’s qualifying season. Thomas Delaney from Werder Bremen.
