Nicklas Bendtner Missing World Cup Through Injury

Recommended Posts

Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner will miss the World Cup in Russia due to a groin injury.

The 30-year-old former Arsenal man injured himself playing for current club Rosenborg before joining up with the national team and missed last Saturday's goalless draw against Sweden in Stockholm.

He had been included in Denmark's 27-man provisional squad but is one of four players to miss the final cut, along with Brentford's Andreas Bjelland.

In a video posted on the Danish FA's Twitter page, coach Age Hareide said: "Bendtner stood up and asked if he could say something to the players and wished them good luck with the job in Russia.",

Noooooooo. The lord will not be gracing us with his presence. Also actually a huge blow to Denmark considering his experience and goal scoring record for them.
