Among the 829 footballers who will play at the World Cup 2022 in Qatar, according to the Danish top, there will be seven players from the Danish top. SportingPedia.
The Super League will therefore provide 0.84 percent of the entire group of players, making it the 23rd best represented league in the world.
It becomes the 13th most represented top European league, alongside Croatia – an improvement of four places on its UEFA coefficient score, which assesses the success of countries in relation to their clubs’ performance in European tournaments.
But the Swedish and Norwegian top flights are nowhere to be seen, as no players from the countries are lining up for the event.
Four of them will face Denmark!
Admittedly, neither Sweden nor Norway qualified for the World Cup, but out of the seven who play in the Superliga, only two are Danes: FC Copenhagen forward Andreas Cornelius and Brøndby defender Daniel Wass.
Four of the remaining five end up playing against Denmark in the group stage! Goalkeeper Matt Ryan (FC Copenhagen) and defender Joel King (OB) will play for Australia, while forwards Issam Jebali (OB) and Anis Ben Slimane (Brøndby) will represent Tunisia.
FC Copenhagen’s Polish goalkeeper Kamil Grabara will also feature in Qatar and he will be joined by a player in the Nordic Bet Liga, the Danish second tier, as Iranian defensive midfielder Saeid Ezatolahi currently plays for Vejle.
