Knudsen in Provisional Danish World Cup Squad
Monday, 14th May 2018 12:22

Blues defender Jonas Knudsen has been named in Denmark’s provisional 35-man squad ahead of this summer’s World Cup in Russia.

In March, the 25-year-old won his third full international cap in a 0-0 friendly draw with Chile, and his first since joining Town.

Speaking last month, Knudsen said "it would mean everything" to him to win a place at the finals where Denmark will play Peru, Australia and France in the group stages.

“It was fantastic to get back into the squad again and the manager [Åge Hareide] told me I trained well," he said.

“It is not easy to get into the Danish team because they have done well to qualify for the World Cup finals in Russia, so to get 90 minutes against Chile was terrific for me.

“I am hopeful of going to Russia and I have a chance but there is still a lot of work to do. First and foremost I have to do well for Ipswich in the six remaining games."

Prior to the finals the Danes are playing friendlies away in Sweden on Saturday 2nd June and at home against Mexico the following Saturday. Monday 4th June is the deadline for submitting the final 23-man squad.

I remember being a Bulgaria fan in 94 because of Bontcho. Hoping to be following Poland and Denmark although I’ve had a soft spot for Denmark since 86 and laudruo and Elkjaer

Monkey_Blue: I too have a soft spot for Denmark. I remember the Euros '92 in Sweden. The whole town was invaded by Danish "rooligans" ("rolig" in Swedish means "fun", so you get the pun. They didn't cause any trouble at all.). Had a great time with them - and they won the final too. Also today, a decent team internationally, so Jonas has done well to be part of the squad, even if he doesn't make the final cut (but I hope he does).
