Goalkeepers:

Stephan Andersen (Evian Thonon Gaillard)
The 30-year-old is expected to be Denmark's first-choice goalkeeper as a result of Thomas Sorensen missing out with a back injury. Experienced at club level but has only been capped ten times since making his international debut in 2004.

Anders Lindegaard (Manchester United)
United's back-up keeper has just five caps for his country as is likely to be warming the bench during the European Championships.

Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester City)
The son of Denmark legend Peter is uncapped and has been called up due to Sorensen's injury. Plenty of potential, but is yet to really settle as club level.

Defenders:

Andreas Bjelland (FC Nordsjaelland)
Can play at right-back but is primarily a central defender. Will join FC Twente this summer.

Daniel Agger (Liverpool)
Has struggled with injuries but is one of Denmark's key players. A quality defender, Agger is certain to start.

Daniel Wass (Evian Thonon Gaillard)
A young right-back who can also play on the right of midfield.

Jores Okore (FC Nordsjaelland)
Capped three times by his country and aged just 19 has a promising career ahead of him.

Lars Jacobsen (FC Copenhagen)
Can play either in central defence or on the left or right of the back four. Had a spell with West Ham before returning to Denmark last year.

Simon Poulsen (AZ Alkmaar)
A speedy full-back with 18 caps to his name.

Simon Kjaer (AS Roma)
Should start alongside Agger. One of Denmark's best players and was linked with a number of top clubs - including Real Madrid - before deciding to join Roma last summer.

Midfielders:

Christian Poulsen (Evian Thonon Gaillard)
A two-time Footballer of the Year winner in Denmark, readers may remember him for a terrible spell with Liverpool.

William Kvist (Vfb Stuttgart)
Can play in defence and across the midfield. Capped 28 times by his country.

Christian Eriksen (Ajax)
The highly-rated 20-year-old already has 23 caps. Linked with Manchester United, Eriksen is a quality player who has been compared to Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta.

Michael Krohn-Dehli (Brondby IF)
A great passer of the ball who is capable of scoring goals. Can play in central midfield or in a more advanced role.

Lasse Schone (Nijmegen)
Ten caps for his country and two goals - one of which came after just 20 seconds in his debut against Chile in 2009.

Michael Silberbauer (Young Boys)
Can play in central midfield but equally at home on the right.

Jakob Poulsen (FC Midtjylland)
Has won 22 caps since making his debut against Greece in 2009.

Thomas Kahlenberg (Evian)
38 caps for his country, but only featured once during Denmark's Euro 2012 qualifying campaign.

Niki Zimling (Club Brugge)
11 caps for his country. Likely to be warming the bench.

Forwards:

Dennis Rommedahl (Brondby)
21 goals in 116 appearances for his country. Can go missing at times, but has scored some important goals.

Nicklas Bendtner (Sunderland)
18 goals in 48 appearances. His club future is up in the air after a loan spell at Sunderland and will be keen to play his way into a summer move.

Nicklas Pedersen (FC Groningen)
Yet to score in eight games for his country. Made four appearances in qualifying.

Tobias Mikkelsen (FC Nordsjaelland)
Three caps to his name and also yet to score.
