Meanwhile Celtic midfielder Matt O'Riley also earned a call-up to the full Danish international squad for the first time and is line to make his debut for Denmark against San Marino on Tuesday night.

O'Riley has already scored five goals in 11 appearances for his club this season and has been rewarded for an excellent start to the campaign.

He was originally tipped to be called up for Denmark's Euro 2024 double-header against Kazakhstan and San Marino but was a surprise omission from the original squad with manager Kasper Hjulmand acknowledging he was aware of his progress and was watching him.

O'Riley had been capped four times by Denmark's Under 21s and he replaced Anderlecht striker Kasper Dolberg in the squad who has returned home for family reasons.

The 22 year-old who was in Spain when the notification came through told sporting outlet that it all felt a bit strange: " It happened very quickly. I just got a call from Morten Wieghorst and Kasper Hjulmand. I was just sitting in Mallorca and eight hours later I was in Denmark, so it all happened very quickly.

"Wieghorst said that there was a very good chance that I would go and then I had to pack my things and be ready. I also had to talk to the hotel reception and say that I had to check out, but the feeling you get with that is really good!

"It was a bit strange. After all, I wasn’t sure if I should hide my face or not. I didn’t want anyone to talk about it, so I chose to wear a hat and hood."
