The Danish national coach, Gudmundur Gudmundsson, has taken out his 28-man initial squad for the World Championship in France in January.

The initial sqaud consists 28 names, and the final World Championship squad of 16 players is taken out prior to departure in January.

"Over the next few days I take out 19 players, who will meet in the joint between Christmas and New Year, and so there may be some substitution toward Bygma Cup before the final World Championship squad is removed prior to our departure for Paris on January 11," says Gudmundur Gudmundsson about the upcoming program.

The back court player of SG Flensburg-Handewitt, Rasmus Lauge Schmidt, is not ready on top of his injury and is therefore not selected for the squad.
