Henrik named in Denmark squad

International call for defender

22 May 2019

Brentford defender Henrik Dalsgaard has been included in the Denmark squad for two upcoming matches. Denmark will play Republic of Ireland and Georgia next month in UEFA European Championship Qualification fixtures. Denmark drew their first Group D fixture against Switzerland in March and need to finish in the top two of a pool that also includes Gibraltar in order to qualify for the tournament next summer.

Henrik has been named in a 22-man squad for the games, both in Copenhagen, on June 7 and June 10. He goes in to the match having scored the equaliser against Switzerland as Denmark came from 3-0 down to earn a point. The defender has 20 caps for his country and that was his first goal.

Henrik will be training with the Danish squad next week ahead of the official meet-up on 3 June. Should Henrik play in both games it will be the 17th and 18th caps he has earned since joining Brentford. John Buttigieg currently holds the record for most caps as a Brentford player – 20 for Malta.
