And I am the national coach Nikolaj Jacobsen immensely. He had, in many ways, the use of the good news, after the damage the last few days has hit the broad in the squad.

– It is fine to have Sarah back.

– This is a man who means extremely much for this team, and he has done that in a long number of years. Both on and off the field.

– On the field he is accustomed to take responsibility.

– He is a player with a great overview and a good shot. And so, he is a good guy to have with the outside of the track.

How do you evaluate his physical condition in relation to EM last year, where he had problems with his knee?

– It is a completely different Activity this time. Through the hard work of our physiotherapist throughout the year, and in cooperation with his club in Paris, there come some more grip on it's knees.

– The game, Mikkel has delivered to Paris in the year, is also something completely different than what we saw a year ago.

– It is a better Mikkel physically, than it was in Croatia, says Nikolaj Jacobsen, who yesterday afternoon began to have a closer look at the first WORLD cup opponent.

– We've got fresh video of Chile. They played at the weekend against Finland, and the material, now we need to spend some time to analyze.

– I know that Chile has some fine boldspillere, but may lack the something physics.

– From now on it's all about the preparation towards the opening match.

– We must, among other things, have trained some seven against seksspil, which we must be fine-tuned.

– There is no doubt that with the players we have available, seven against six, will be a big part of our game, says Nikolaj Jacobsen.

It may here be added, that Chile beat Finland 29-22 after 11-11 at the break.

But the captain, Niklas Landin, are well satisfied with Denmark opens the ball against an opponent, not from the top shelf.

– It is fine that we can start a little bit soft, after which it becomes harder and harder.

– But, however, we have previously seen that the non-european teams are not really good for us.

– It is some small, quick players, which often hurts on the big defenders. But on the other hand, I am satisfied that we do not open against Norway, which is among the favorites, says Landin.

Denmark meets Norway in the last puljekamp 17. January in Herning.
