Denmark's national coach, Aage Hareide, had several surprises up its sleeve, as he on Monday announced its squad for the upcoming internationals against Kosovo and Switzerland.
With in the squad of 23 players was: FC Copenhagen Robert Forest, Huddersfield-player Philip Billing and Sampdorias Joachim Andersen.
All three have their debut on A national team for good.
- It is natural for us, that we are looking at players in the U21-national team. It is a natural recruitment base for the Danish national team.
In 2018, there were no debutants. It was quite deliberately, because we wagered on the continuity, says Åge Hareide at the presentation of the squad.
Robert Forest has marked itself as a profile in the premier League this season with 23 goals, which makes him the top scorer in the best Danish series.
While there are three potential debutants in the squad, is Pione Sisto, Jannik Vestergaard and Andreas Cornelius slid out. The latter has been out with an injury in Bordeaux's recent matches.

in Addition to Switzerland, Denmark ended up in a group with Georgia, Gibraltar and Ireland. All opgørene be played during the calendar year 2019.
Last year, won Denmark its group in the Nations League and moved up in the tournament's top layer. Denmark has therefore yet a chance for an EM-ticket, if the qualification were to slip.
- We must become even better. Although we are number ten in the world, it is not worth much if we can't continue.
- It is not so easy to get to the european championships in Denmark, but we have to deliver and perform. It is the only thing we focus on, says Hareide.
Denmark is one of 12 states to hold the european championships in 2020. The year marks the 60 anniversary of the first european championship finals.
Copenhagen is the host of four matches played in June 2020.
