NED v DEN Team News

Good Morning out there!  Below are the teams that have been announced for today’s first match.

Netherlands: 1-Maarten Stekelenburg; 2-Gregory van der Wiel, 3-John Heitinga, 4-Joris Mathijsen, 5-Giovanni van Bronckhorst, 7-Dirk Kuyt, 6-Mark van Bommel, 10-Wesley Sneijder, 8-Nigel de Jong, 23-Rafael van der Vaart, 9-Robin van Persie.

Denmark: 1-Thomas Sorensen; 4-Daniel Agger, 3-Simon Kjaer, 6-Lars Jacobsen, 15-Simon Poulsen, 10-Martin Jorgensen, 2-Christian Poulsen, 20-Thomas Enevoldsen, 12-Thomas Kahlenberg, 19-Dennis Rommedahl, 11-Nicklas Bendtner.

There is no surprises for the Dutch.  Robben is not included in the line up however most expected this to be the case given his recent injury and ongoing recovery.

For the Danes Bendtner starts which was not expected by yours truly based on some of the injury reports I had read.  Fair play to Denmark if they have been able to return him to full fitness so quickly.  I would hate to see him rushed back however get injured and miss more of the tournament.  Nicklas is a dynamic young player who is great for the tournament.
