International Round-Up

Lasse Vibe plays in Denmark draw

7 June 2017

Brentford striker Lasse Vibe earned his 11th international cap as his Denmark side drew with Germany last night. Lasse came on as a second half substitute in the friendly international, played to mark the 25th anniversary of Denmark beating Germany to win the 1992 UEFA European Championships. Denmark took the lead through Tottenham Hotspur midfield player Christian Eriksen and looked to be heading for a victory over the current World Cup holders before Joshua Kimmich equalised in the dying minutes.

Lasse played the final 15 minutes of the match, playing in a wide attacking role as part of a front three. It was his first cap since March 2016 and his second earned since he joined Brentford two years ago. Two other Brentford players are in the Denmark squad. Andreas Bjelland was an unused substitute while Henrik Dalsgaard did not match the final squad for the match. Denmark play Kazakhstan in a World Cup qualifier on Sunday.

No other Brentford players were in international action yesterday but there was interest for two young Bees in the prestigious Toulon Tournament. The final group matches were played in France and a win for Scotland over Indonesia eliminated Wales from the competition. This will mean Chris Mepham cannot add to the one Wales Under-20 cap he earned in the tournament.

Scotland will now face England in the last four and that may mean more action for Brentford B goalkeeper Ellery Balcombe, who is in the Three Lions squad. That semi-final will be played tomorrow, Thursday 8 June. As well as Ellery and England there could also be international action in the next few days for Lukas Talbro, for Denmark Under-18, and Romaine Sawyers, for St Kitts and Nevis.
