Denmark Could Field A High School Student, Builder and YouTuber In Their Team Tonight

Slovakia vs Denmark has become must-watch tonight purely for the fact that the Danish side is entirely made up of semi-pros and futsal players.

With talks over new contracts within the national team set-up stalling because of the Denmark's squad, which includes household names like Christian Eriksen and Kasper Schmeichel, have threatened to not play their friendly fixture.

But failure to fulfil the game would mean the ninth-best ranked international side would be banned from playing at Euro 2020.


With manager Age Hareide and assistant Jon Dahl Tomasson also not taking charge, Euro 1992 winner John Jensen has had to fill in and assemble a team of unknowns - and pretty much all of them only play football on a part-time basis.

Danish outlet BT have done some digging and there are a wide range of job titles amongst the group who will play an official international fixture tomorrow.

For starters, right-back Kasper Skræp is still classed as a high school student and he could be joined in the backline by Christian Bommelunds, a trained carpenter.

Christian Offenberg is the current top scorer in the second division (third tier) but also works as a salesmanMidfielder Kevin Jorgensen is a prison guard, Anders Fonss of Tarup Paarup is a boat mechanic, Rasmus Johansson is a football freestyler on YouTube and there's also Daniel Holm, who is listed as unemployed.

Denmark reached the round of 16 before they were knocked out of the World Cup by finalists Croatia but their team tonight will be like something you normally only come across when San Marino play.

BT put together a potential XI that the Danes could play tonight, with reddit user 'jayt1203' kindly translating the jobs to give the following graphic:

We really, really want Denmark's pub team to win tonight as the scenes will be something else.
