“I am happy that the World Cup squad is now complete,” said Hjulmand.

“When there are options, there are also opt-outs, and it has been difficult to have to inform other players that they are not in the squad.

“Now we are looking forward to getting together and going for a week’s training before the first match.”

Captain Simon Kjaer and playmaker Christian Eriksen, who has recovered fully from the heart attack he suffered in Copenhagen during Euro 2020, were among the players included in the initial squad announcement.

The Danes, who are appearing at their sixth World Cup finals, begin their campaign against Tunisia on Nov. 22 before taking on defending champions France four days later.

They complete their group phase commitments on Nov. 30 when they meet Australia.
