Henrik and Andreas receive Denmark call-up

Pair selected for two World Cup qualifiers next month

23 August 2017

Brentford's Danish defensive duo of Andreas Bjelland and Henrik Dalsgaard have been selected for two crucial 2018 World Cup Qualifiers early next month.

First up for Åge Hareide's men is a home game against runaway Group E leaders Poland on Friday 1 September at the Telia Park in Copenhagen, kick-off 7.45pm UK time. Then three days later they travel to the Republican Stadium in Yerevan to take on Armenia, 5pm kick-off.

The Danes are currently third in Group E with ten points from six games, level on points with second-placed Montenegro and six points behind leaders Poland with four games remaining. The nine group winners qualify automatically for next year's tournament with the eight best second-placed teams going into a Play-Off for the remaining four spots.

Andreas has made 23 appearances for his nation, scoring twice, while Henrik, who has been an ever-present since signing for The Bees in the summer, will be looking to earn his fifth Danish cap.
