Henrik Dalsgaard on cusp of equalling Club record

Defender included in Denmark squad for two Qualifiers next month

30 September 2019

Henrik Dalsgaard has a chance to equal a Brentford record which has stood since the early 1990s when he joins up with the Denmark squad next week.

The Bees' defender is just two shy of John Buttigieg's Club record tally of 20 international caps won while a Brentford player, ahead of The Danes' encounters with Switzerland and Luxembourg.

The game against the Swiss in Copenhagen on Saturday 12 October, kick-off 5pm UK time, is a sell out as both sides try and reel in the Republic of Ireland at the top of Group D of European Qualifying. After that The Danes decamp to Aalborg for a friendly match against Luxembourg the following Tuesday, kick-off 6pm. 

In total, Henrik has won 23 caps for his nation, with his only goal coming in a dramatic 3-3 Qualifying draw against Switzerland in March. With the 30-year-old in their side, The Danes haven't lost inside 90 minutes since March 2016, a run of 20 international matches, keeping ten clean sheets in that time. 

At club level this season, Henrik has played every minute in the Sky Bet Championship and EFL Cup, as he closes in on his 100th Brentford appearance.
