31 October 2017

Brentford's Danish defensive duo of Andreas Bjelland and Henrik Dalsgaard have been selected in Åge Hareide's 23 man squad for next month's 2018 FIFA World Cup Play-Off against the Republic of Ireland.

The First Leg takes place at the Telia Parken, Copenhagen, on Saturday 11 November, kick-off 7.45pm with the the return leg at The Aviva Stadium three days later, also a 7.45pm kick-off. 

Andreas and Henrik have been mainstays of Denmark's late charge to the Play-Offs with Hareide's side winning five and drawing two of their last seven competitive games. Henrik has also been a threat going forward, contributing assists in the wins over Armenia and Montenegro.

Since joining in the summer, Henrik has played 90 minutes in all-but-one of The Bees 14 league outings while Andreas has made ten appearances, scoring once.
