A late inclusion in Denmark's UEFA EURO 2012 squad, Nicklas Pedersen has spent the past three years in the Eredivisie with FC Groningen. A tall, powerful striker, his goal output is far from prolific, but he represents a like-for-like alternative to regular Denmark centre-forward Nicklas Bendtner.
• Started out in the Danish second tier with Herfølge BK, the club his father Jesper played for with distinction over many years and later coached.
• Registered 12 goals in 19 league games in 2006/07 to earn a transfer to top-flight FC Nordsjælland, where he continued to develop his game under ex-Danish international Morten Wieghorst.
• Scored nine goals in 26 Superligaen matches for Nordsjælland and three in 12 Under-21 internationals for Denmark before joining Groningen in January 2009 on a four-year contract.
• On target in the fourth game of the 2009/10 campaign, a 2-2 draw against VVV Venlo, but managed just five goals all season, a figure he repeated in 2010/11; scored just once in 2011/12 – in a 6-1 defeat at PSV Eindhoven – though was often deployed in midfield.
• Made his senior debut for Denmark in a Copenhagen friendly against Germany on 11 August 2010 and started the team's opening three UEFA EURO 2012 qualifiers as a stand-in for the injured Bendtner.
