An unfortunate freak accident could have cost Denmark’s top goalkeeper, Stoke City’s Thomas Sorensen, his place at the World Cup Finals. In a recent Premier League match against Chelsea, Sorenson was injured as Ivory Coast striker Salomon Kalou netted his second goal of the match for Chelsea, in an accidental collision with the forward. Betting on Denmark at the World Cup could largely be affected by this injury, as the national side await news on the extent of his injury. If an operation is on the horizon for the keeper, then he would definitely be a serious doubt to take his place at South Africa 2010.

Sorensen played a large part in Denmark’s success in qualifying for the World Cup, as they topped their European Qualification group ahead of the more fancied teams in Sweden and Portugal. The Danes lost just one match during their run to the World Cup finals, and are carrying high hopes of getting out of Group E in which they will face European rivals Holland, as well as Cameroon and Japan, largely backed by their strong defence. Up front they have the confident figure of Arsenal’s young striker Nicklas Bendtner, who has put in some great performances in an injury stricken season. While they are in a tough group and perhaps without their starting goalie, World Cup betting probably will not discount the Danes altogether.

Denmark will play Australia on June 1st as part of their warm up preparations, with the two sides having only met once before in 2007, with Denmark running out 3-1 winners. Danish legend Morten Olsen is in charge of the efficient Danes, and he will know the necessity of taking the strongest and fittest players with him, as their options in picking World Class players are limited in comparison to other European countries. But Denmark are in the mix, and will look to cause upsets along the way, carried forward by their excellent qualification form.

World Cup betting at SkyBet has Denmark out at 100/1 to win the World Cup, and 4/1 to win Group E.
