Team Players

Team Info

Alongside Argentina, Croatia and Egypt, Denmark are one of the four nations to have participated in all eight previous editions of the IHF Men's Youth World Championship. And the European side is the most decorated team in the competition's history, as they won it three times, in 2007, 2011 and 2013, and earned bronze twice, in 2017 and 2019.

Last year, this generation of Danish players failed to win a medal at the 2022 European Men's Youth Championship, but the sixth place was enough to book a ticket to the World Championship. However, the squad of the team has changed since then.

Now head coach Simon S√łrensen has as many as 12 new players at his disposal ‚Äď those who did not compete in the European Championship last year. Denmark generates a lot of talent every year, and the age group born in 2004/05 is no exception. So the Danes are looking forward to the World Championship with optimism, as they rely on a number of players who can play key roles in a specific match.

At Croatia 2023, Denmark's primary goal is to qualify for the main round, and then they will go step by step ‚Äď but obviously, the Nordic side hope to add another World Championship medal to their collection.¬†
