Denmark will aim to emulate their emotionally charged run to the Euro 2020 semifinals in Qatar, minus the drama of Christian Eriksen’s horrifying collapse as they announced their 21-man squad from the 26-man squad for the Qatar World Cup.

In choosing 21 of the 26 players who will represent Denmark at the World Cup in Qatar on Monday, coach Kasper Hjulmand showed loyalty to the players who contributed to recent successful World Cup qualifying and Nations League campaigns.

The final list must be submitted to FIFA by Monday, November 13, with the World Cup scheduled to begin on Nov. 20, and the last five players will be announced following the final round of European matches before the competition.

Tottenham’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Leeds United’s Rasmus Kristensen and Brentford duo Mathias Jensen and Mikkel Damsgaard are all included.
