Denmark to take part in 2016 Kirin Cup in Japan

After failing to book their place at Euro 2016 finals, Denmark are keen on qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The Danes face Scotland in their first warm-up game for the WC qualifiers, but they will participate at the Kirin Cup in Japan as well.

Denmark were outplayed by Sweden in the Euro 2016 play-offs and, as a result, Morten Olsen resigned as the head coach of the Danish national team.

The Danes are now on a quest to book their place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and they will play a number of friendly games before they kick off their WC qualifying campaign.

New coach Age Hareide will make his debut against Scotland in March and it has to be noted that the Nordic side will face the likes of Japan, Bosnia and Bulgaria at the 2016 Kirin Cup in June, Denmark FA has confirmed.

Denmark finished their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign in third place in Group I, just two points behind Albania, who secured automatic qualification for the showpiece tournament in France.

Age Hareide’s charges kick off their WC qualifying campaign with a match against Armenia on 9 September.
