Let’s see some of the international football news around the World Cup.

Denmark announces preliminary 21-man squad
Christian Eriksen, a midfielder for Manchester United, has been selected for Denmark’s preliminary World Cup roster in Qatar.
Denmark has named 21 players from its 26-man roster; the remaining five will be revealed after the last round of league matches.
Before the tournament starts on November 20, the final roster must be submitted to Fifa by November 13.
Manager Kasper Hjulmand of Denmark stated, “Many things can happen.”
“It’s impossible to solve, but it’s the appropriate course of action because many of our players still have two games left, which may easily alter the situation.”
“The final five places are still up for grabs between 10 and 12 players.”
Denmark’s opening Group D match will be against Tunisia. Following that, they will play the reigning champions, France, on November 26 and Australia on November 30.

France handed Raphael Varane an injury boost
Raphael Varane reportedly plans to resume training soon before joining Didier Deschamps’ team for the World Cup.
According to a recent report from L’Equipe, the defender is unlikely to play in United’s next two matches before the World Cup gets underway in Qatar.
Varane might participate in first-team training at Carrington before leaving for his next significant competition. Though we are only assuming that Deschamps will still pick him despite injury concerns.
Despite initial worries that his World Cup dream would end before it even began, Varane seems to be winning his fitness sprint to support France in their title defense.
