England v Denmark: Nicklas Bendtner included in Denmark squad for Wembley friendly
Arsenal striker among five England-based players in the squad
Nicklas Bendtner has been named in Denmark's 22-man squad to face England in a friendly next Wednesday.
The Arsenal striker is one of five England-based players in the Morten Olsen's squad, alongside Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, Liverpool's Daniel Agger, Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen, and Fulham loanee William Kvist Jorgensen. Former Everton defender Lars Jacobsen has also been called up.
Bendtner is back to full fitness after recovering from an ankle injury which he picked up on New Year's Day, and has been an unused substitute in the Gunners last three Premier League matches. He has scored two goals in 12 Premier League appearances for the club this season.
The friendly will be the final time chance that Roy Hodgson has to access his England players before naming his World Cup squad.
