Chisinau. Striker Kasper Dolberg is back on the Danish national football team after he, to his own great frustration, missed the national matches against Scotland, the Faroe Islands and Israel in September.

His knee problems have gone away on their own, and the Silkeborg native feels completely fresh again ahead of the national team’s two matches against Moldova and Austria on Saturday and Tuesday.

– I reckon I’m all ready again. I’ve been training for over a week and I also got a few minutes for Nice last weekend. My right knee has teased me twice over the course of the season, but it doesn’t anymore.

– I feel that I can feel that it is over. It feels better now, it is more stable, and I have a good feeling, and I go for it, says Kasper Dolberg.

The knee problems arose after a good start to the season for Nice, where he had just scored twice against the champions Lille. Just before the international term in September, however, things went wrong.

– It is extra annoying to be hit by an injury when you feel that it is going well and you are in a good rhythm and have a good feeling every time you go on the field.

– It was not very cool to follow the latest national matches from a distance, and I was really looking forward to coming back to Denmark and playing those matches. It was very frustrating not to play, says Dolberg.

During this summer’s European Championship final, he flourished and scored two goals in the round of 16 against Wales and one goal in the quarterfinals against the Czech Republic.

In that context, the recent national team cancellation was extra annoying for him, after he for a while resembled Hjulmand’s first choice in the national team’s lone place as striker.

– Now a couple of matches have been played without me, and we have to see who is chosen to play now, says Dolberg.

Yussuf Poulsen, Andreas Cornelius and Jonas Wind are also in play for the place as central striker.

On Saturday night at 20.45, a World Cup qualifier away against Moldova awaits. On Tuesday, Austria will pass the Park. With two victories, Denmark redeems a ticket to next year’s World Cup finals in Qatar.
