Knudsen Could Win Fourth Danish Cap in Final Friendly
Saturday, 9th Jun 2018 09:59
Blues defender Jonas Knudsen could win his fourth full cap this evening when Denmark face Mexico in their final pre-World Cup friendly at the Brøndby Stadion. On Sunday, Knudsen, 25, was named in Denmark’s 23 for Russia.
In March, Knudsen won his third full cap and made his first international start in a 0-0 friendly draw with Chile, his first Denmark appearance since joining Town in the summer of 2015.
The left-sided full-back or centre-half's two previous caps, both from the bench, were won in 2014 while with Esbjerg fB.
The Danes will take on Peru, Australia and France in the group stages of the finals.
Meanwhile, Town keeper Bartosz Bialkowski was an unused sub as Poland drew 2-2 with Chile in their penultimate friendly before they travel to Russia in Poznan last night.
Wojciech Szczesny of Juventus started in goal before being replaced by Swansea’s Lukasz Fabianski at half-time.
Bialkowski, very much the third choice in the squad, wasn’t expected to feature against the Chileans but could play some part during Tuesday’s final friendly against Lithuania in Warsaw.
Elsewhere, former Blues striker Frank Nouble, 26, has joined League Two Colchester United on a two-year deal having been out of contract at Newport County.

End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
On This Day - Saturday 28th April 1962 by clivebleedingthomas
As a 15-year-old I make my way to Portman Road full of anticipation and anxiety. Our rivals, Burnley, are playing at home to already relegated Chelsea. A home win must be on the cards. On the following Tuesday they will play their game in hand against Sheffield Wednesday. However, Town are top of Division One and facing Aston Villa.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
I am already sick of the fiasco involving our new leader, the interview with our owner and all that goes with it, so I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
