Denmark call up futsal players for games against Slovakia and Wales

former Arsenal star John Jensen takes temporary charge

Christian Eriksen will not play for Denmark
1 of 1

Denmark have been forced to pick a scratch team of lower league and futsal players for their games against Slovakia and Wales.

A row over commercial image rights has lead to the senior players including Tottenham's Christian Eriksen refusing to play and the Danish Super League backed them.

Coach Age Hareide has also temporarily stood down, and former Arsenal star John Jensen has come in to cobble together a side from a squad which features four players from the nation's futsal team.

Bet365 go 12-1 that Jensen and his Danish rabble could pull off a stunning upset away in Slovakia on Wednesday.
