Danish players are in vogue in Ligue 1 at the moment with 11 of them plying their trade in France's top division this season. Six of them are in Morten Olsen's squad and it is likely that three of the visiting back four will be composed of French-based players familiar with the special atmosphere generated at Le Chaudron (The Cauldron) that is the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard, a Euro 2016 host venue. Former LOSC Lille forward Mikkel Beck, now an agent, told L'Equipe: "One of Denmark's current stars is Simon Kjaer, who plays at Lille, and that means Ligue 1 has generated more interest in the country. After that, the French clubs have to come to Denmark to find the players."
Nicklas Bendtner completed a hat-trick one minute into second-half added time as Denmark beat the United States 3-2 in Aarhus. The VfL Wolfsburg man had twice responded for the home side after Jozy Altidore and then Aron Johansson gave the US the lead.
