The Danish midfielders William Kvist (33) and Michael Krohn-Dehli (35) stop after the elimination at the world CHAMPIONSHIPS as international.
Kvist, player of FC Copenhagen, after 81 international matches (two goals) have been lovely. “Thank you for all the great years,” he wrote on Facebook after the defeat on penalties in the quarter-final against Croatia. “I thought it was always fun to be with you the national anthem to sing and have done my best.”
Kvist made his debut eleven years ago in the national team. The controlling midfielder, that also for VfB Stuttgart, Fulham and Wigan Athletic played, ran in the first group competition at the world cup against Peru (1-0) two broken ribs. The world cup looked like this for the past him and Kvist and flew back to Copenhagen. He recovered quickly however, and he sat Sunday against Croatia already back on the bank, but was not in action.
Krohn-Dehli, who comes out for Deportivo and a past in o.a. RKC, Ajax, Brondby, Celta and Seville, if raids against Croatia and kicked a penalty. He stops with 59 caps to his name (six goals).
Denmark had Sunday evening in the penalty shoot-out to bow to the Croats by the failures of Christian Eriksen, Lasse Schöne and Nicolai Jorgensen. Ivan Rakitic put in for Croatia the decisive team credentials and stay up to. In the quarter-finals play the Croats against host country Russia, which surprisingly Spain wipte (after penalty shots).
