Mads Bidstrup retains place in Denmark Under-21 squad

Midfielder included for European Championship Qualifier in Turkey

2 November 2021

Mads Bidstrup has been included in the latest Denmark Under-21 squad for their European Championship Qualifier against Turkey.

The game will be played at the Oba Stadyumu, Alanya, on Tuesday 16 November, kick-off 5pm UK time. 

Denmark suffered their first defeat in Group I last time out, going down 1-0 to Group leaders Belgium. That result leaves The Danes on six points after three games, six points off top, albeit with a game in hand. Turkey go into the game in a fortnight's time a further two points behind Denmark in third. 

An unused substitute last time out, Mads has three Under-21 caps to his name in total, all of which have come this season. He made his debut in a 1-1 friendly draw against Greece in September before appearing off the bench in a pair of 1-0 Qualifying wins for The Danes over Kazakhstan and, most recently, Scotland. 

The 20-year-old has appeared 25 times in total for his nation between Under-16 and Under-21 level, scoring once.

For Brentford this term, Mads has made six appearances in all competitions. The midfielder has three Premier League substitute appearances to his name, those coming against Arsenal, Crystal Palace, and West Ham United. In the Carabao Cup, Mads started our victories over Forest Green Rovers and Stoke City as well as a substitute outing against Oldham Athletic. 

In total, Mads has 12 First Team appearances for The Bees since his debut against Preston North End in April.
