Manchester United striker Rasmus Hojlund has been named in Denmark’s squad for the upcoming international break.
The 20-year-old has not yet made his debut for the Red Devils after joining from Atalanta in the summer, but he has been included in the squad for the games against San Marino and Finland in the Euro 2024 qualifiers.
Hojlund’s selection is a boost for Manchester United ahead of their Premier League match against Arsenal on Sunday. The Dane has been training with the first team in recent weeks and is said to be close to a full recovery from a back injury.
Denmark manager Kasper Hjulmand said he was “pleased” to have Hojlund in the squad. “He is a talented player with a lot of potential,” Hjulmand said. “He is still young, but he has shown in the past that he can be a difference-maker.”
Hojlund is the only Manchester United player included in the Denmark squad. Fellow Red Devil Christian Eriksen has also been called up, but he is currently playing for Brentford.
Denmark will play San Marino on September 2 and Finland on September 6. The games are both important for Denmark’s qualification campaign for Euro 2024.
Hojlund will be hoping to make his debut for Denmark in the upcoming games. If he can do so, it will be a major boost to his career and could also help him to break into the Manchester United first team.
Here are some additional details about Hojlund:
- He is a tall and athletic striker who is good at running in behind defenders.
- He is also a good dribbler and has a good eye for goal.
- He is still young and has a lot of potential to develop into a top striker.
Hojlund’s call-up to the Denmark squad is a positive sign for his career. It shows that he is highly rated by his national team coach and that he has the potential to play at the highest level.
If he can stay fit and continue to develop, he could be a major player for Manchester United and Denmark in the years to come.
