If their performance at the last World Cup if anything, Denmark will be hoping to sail through the group stage.
Coach Kasper Hjulmand, who won plaudits for his heroics that day, guided his side to a semi-final with England, with Gareth Southgate’s men victorious.
This time around, the team will be hoping to make a mark on the world stage.
Denmark squad for the 2022 World Cup
World Cup Teams are usually announced about six weeks before the start of the World Cup. This year, the world championship will take place from November 21 to December 18.
Although the final squad has not been announced, here is who played in June’s internationals.
Big names likely to feature include Kasper Schmeichel, Eriksen, Thomas Delaney, Mikkel Damsgaard, Joakim Maehle and captain Simon Kjær.
Who are likely to be the star names in the team?
We have to start with Eriksen, who has been in scintillating form since recovering from a horrific heart scare two years ago.
The Manchester United midfielder exceeded expectations on international duty, scoring a stunning goal for Denmark in their UEFA Nations League match against Croatia in September.
Next up must be Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, a midfield workhorse who has impressed in the Premier League for Tottenham Hotspur and represented his country at Euro 2020.

November 22: Denmark v Tunisia, Education City Stadium, 1pm.
