Denmark is back at the World Cup after last playing in 2010, but this time it's looking to get out of the group stage. Led by coach Age Hareide, the Danes boast some fantastic playmakers in the final third but needs to find a consistent No. 9.

Best finish: Quarterfinals in 1998.
Last World Cup: 2010
Goalkeepers: Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester), Jonas Lossl (Huddersfield), Frederik Ronow (Brondby)

Strikers: Pione Sisto (Celta Vigo), Martin Braithwaite (Bordeaux), Andreas Cornelius (Atalanta), Viktor Fischer (FC Copenhagen), Yussuf Poulsen (RB Leipzig), Nicolai Jorgensen (Feyenoord), Kasper Dolberg (Ajax)
Midfielder Christian Eriksen. The Tottenham star is a brilliant midfielder who can score his share of goals but also set up his teammates. He's a world-class talent that can carry the Danes to the group stage.
Player to watch
Pione Sisto. The 23-year-old Uganda-born winger is a fine talent. The Celta Vigo man is small and quick, and he's great with the ball at his feet. He can create chances for himself but he is also smart enough to know when to set up a teammate. He could be one of the breakout stars this summer.
Denmark has to feel good about getting out of the group stage. The team is better than Australia, but it will likely come down to getting past Peru. There are concerns with the defense, but Kasper Schmeichel is a good enough goalkeeper to help his team overcome defensive woes. This is a borderline round of 16 team in the end that should probably get there.
