Tobias Mikkelsen

An excellent 2011/12 season with first-time Superligaen champions FC Nordsjælland has earned Tobias Mikkelsen a place in Denmark's UEFA EURO 2012 squad. An accomplished right-winger with an ever-improving goalscoring record, he won the Danish Cup in each of his first two seasons with the Farum club.

• Began his career in the Danish lower leagues with Lyngby BK and helped the club to two promotions in three seasons.

• Left Lyngby after their promotion to the Superligaen, joining Copenhagen rivals Brøndby IF, but after scoring one goal and setting up another on his second outing in July 2007 – against Nordsjælland (2-2) – he struggled to make an impact, injury decimating his second season and culminating in a transfer to Nordsjælland.

• Not a regular at first for his new club but started the 2010 Danish Cup final victory against FC Midtjylland and became much more prominent the following campaign, which ended with a repeat cup showpiece triumph over the same opposition.

• Upped his game – and goal tally – to another level in 2011/12 as Nordsjælland pipped serial champions FC København to the Superligaen title.

• Capped ten times by Denmark at Under-21 level, he made his senior debut in a November 2011 friendly against Finland, coming on at half-time in a 2-1 win in Esbjerg.
