Denmark coach: Kasper Hjulmand

The 50-year-old began his coaching career at Lyngby but came of age after taking the reins at Nordsjælland in 2011, leading them to their first Danish title a year later. Spent a further three years there after a stint at Mainz before the national team came calling in 2020. Hjulmand's team reached the last four at UEFA EURO 2020 – their best showing at a final tournament since Denmark's sensational triumph at EURO '92.

Denmark captain: Simon Kjær

The 33-year-old defender is the third most-capped player in the country's history and has been in the national team set-up since 2009. Lists Wolfsburg, Roma, LOSC Lille, Fenerbahçe and Sevilla among his previous clubs and helped AC Milan to the Serie A title last season. He famously won the 2021 UEFA President's Award for his role in helping Christian Eriksen survive his cardiac arrest at UEFA EURO 2020.

Denmark's World Cup history 

Most appearances: Martin Jørgensen (11)
Top scorer: Jon Dahl Tomasson (5)
Best performance: Quarter-finals (1998)
2018 World Cup: Round of 16 (L2-3pens vs Croatia)

Denmark have reached the finals on five occasions and made it out of their group in four of those appearances. However, a 4-1 victory against Nigeria in 1998 represents their only win in the knockout stages at a World Cup – quite a contrast to their regular overachievements in UEFA European Championships.
