Thomas Sorensen's elbow is the focus of all attention as the goalkeeper attempts to recover from a dislocation in time for the first group game against Netherlands on 14 June. However, he is named in the final squad. Daniel Agger has survived an injury scare and is expected to partner Simon Kjaer at the centre of the Danish defence

The inclusion of the erratic Dennis Rommedahl was controversial and the Ajax Amsterdam winger will be desperate to prove his detractors wrong. The finals in South Africa could be the end of the line for Jon Dahl Tomasson.

Tomasson needs two goals to overtake Poul Nielsen as Denmark's top goalscorer. Arsenal's Nicklas Bendtner will hope to take over from Tomasson as the fulcrum of the Danish attack, and in 18-year-old Ajax playmaker Christian Eriksen, one of the youngest players at the finals, the Danes have someone who could become a cornerstone of the team for years to come.
