A team of amateur players, including members of the Danish Futsal team, students and an internet freestyle footballer, lined up for their country in a 3-0 defeat by Slovakia on Wednesday due to a long-running dispute regarding a new commercial rights deal.

That meant all players based overseas and those playing in the top two divisions of Danish football were unavailable, but a temporary agreement has been reached which means the senior squad will be available for Sunday’s game with Wales.

Knudsen is involved and, if he plays, will win his fifth Danish cap.
