Rio 2016: Danish 14 without Lindberg

The head coach of the Danish men’s national team, Gudmundur Gudmundsson declared his 14+1 players for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. He decided to name only one player on both wings, so the biggest surprise is that Hans Lindberg is only the reserve player of Denmark. The experienced right wing will travel to Brazil with the team, so he will be ready in case of emergency, but this decision must be a big blow for the 35-year-old. Anders Eggert didn’t recover from his injury so he is forced to miss the Olympics, however, Rene Toft Hansen is fit following his serious knee injury suffered in the end of last year.

The Danish 14+1 for Rio:
Niklas Landin (goalkeeper)
Jannick Green (goalkeeper)
Lasse Svan Hansen (right wing)
Casper U. Mortensen (left wing)
Morten Olsen (playmaker)
Mads Mensah Larsen (playmaker)
Mikkel Hansen (left back)
Michael Damgaard (left back)
Henrik Möllgard (left back)
Mads Christiansen (right back)
Kasper Söndergaard (right back)
Henrik Toft Hansen (pivot)
René Toft Hansen (pivot)
Jesper Nöddesbo (pivot)
Hans Lindberg (right wing)
