Ex-Arsenal hero to manage Denmark as player row takes amazing twist

first_img possible standings How the Premier League table could change after the Boxing Day fixtures Latest Football News 2 Every Championship club’s best signing of the decade, including Taarabt and Dack Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move “Let’s renew the old deal by one month. Then we have organised relationships right now and we are prepared to play the international matches this week.“Sign up and we will sit on the plane immediately. We are ready and we will play.”But it appears that his plea has been ignored.Denmark, who reached the last 16 of the World Cup in Russia this summer and are ninth in the FIFA rankings, have been beset by internal problems over the past 12 months.The national women’s team boycotted a World Cup qualifier against Sweden in October 2017 in a dispute over employment conditions.Sweden were awarded a 3-0 win and UEFA fined the DBU £18,000, and also warned that Denmark would be barred from UEFA tournaments if it cancelled another match in the next four years.So failing to play Wales would almost certainly see Denmark expelled from the 2020 European Championship. Christian Eriksen is set to miss out playing for Denmark this week With no sign of a resolution, the Danish Football Association (DBU) is now set to select a team of domestic players rather than Premier League-based stars such as Christian Eriksen, Kasper Schmeichel and Andreas Christensen.Manager Age Hareide will also be absent for both games, with former Arsenal midfielder John Jensen placed in temporary charge.The makeshift squad is expected to be drawn from the first and second divisions of the domestic Danish league and members of the national Futsal squad, an indoor five-a-side game played with a smaller and harder ball.Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen had earlier called for a truce in the row and said Denmark’s players were willing to play the two games under the terms of the old commercial rights agreement.“We have to solve this conflict now, not just digging the ditches deeper,” Eriksen said on the Danish Players’ Association website.“So we’re happy to stretch our hand again, even though DBU put it away in the first try.

THEY WANT TO TAKE YOU TO THE ISLAND – ALL TEN OF THEM!

The two men, who are both from Mountcharles, plan to raise as much money as possible for the local Community Development Fund.Plans are in place to set up three small museums in the village with each displaying the rich heritage of Mountcharles.These include embroidery, stonemasonry and literature while a tourist centre, a children’s playground, a skate park and a café are also part of the regeneration of the area.The island-hop will start at dawn on September 3rd and finish at dusk that evening. A spokesman for the 10 Islands Challenge said the entire village is behind the two men in their challenge.“The financial mess and its fall-out this country is currently facing may not be of our doing but we are jointly responsible to turn the tide, not just for us but for our children and our children’s children.“The people of Mountcharles, County Donegal firmly believe that the economic recovery of Ireland as a whole starts with little steps in villages like theirs.“Joe Coyle and John McGroary are taking the first positive step towards a better future for us all. They have the full support of Mountcharles village behind them while they bravely take on their 10 Islands Challenge,” he said.Ends THEY WANT TO TAKE YOU TO THE ISLAND – ALL TEN OF THEM! was last modified: August 16th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:10 Island ChallengeMOUNTCHARLESlast_img read more
