Key Men

1. Christian Eriksen

Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen is the overwhelming standout star of the Denmark team.

Nicknamed "King Christian", Eriksen is one of the top players in the Premier League and has been voted Danish footballer of the year four times.

The midfielder has netted 12 goals in 13 games for Denmark including the fantastic hattrick against Ireland in November that secured their qualification for Russia 2018.

2. Andreas Christensen

After an impressive debut season with the Chelsea senior team, a fantastic outing at Russia 2018 will improve Andreas Christensen’s status as one of the best young defenders in the game.

After breaking into the Chelsea starting XI, Andreas Christensen has further made himself a vital member of the Danish national team.
