29 September 2020

Pione Sisto has earned his first Denmark call-up in two years.

The 25-year-old winger recently returned to former club Midtjylland from Celta Vigo, and has now forced his way into new Denmark boss Kasper Hjulmand’s plans.

Denmark will face England at Wembley on Wednesday, October 14 in the Nations League return clash, following the goalless draw in Copenhagen on September 8.

Philip Billing could make his senior Denmark debut in the three-match window, with the Bournemouth midfielder one of four potential new caps.

“Pione Sisto is back on the team after a two-year break,” read a Denmark statement.

“Jonas Wind and Andreas Skov Olsen, who normally play for the Under-21s national team, are also among Hjulmand’s players for the matches.

“In total the squad contains four possible debutants in the form of Jonas Wind, Andreas Skov Olsen, Philip Billing and Jesper Hansen.”

Denmark will host the Faroe Islands on Wednesday, October 7 before travelling to Iceland four days later.

The trip to Wembley will complete a hectic schedule heavily affected by the coronavirus impact.
