Denmark have released their entire 23 man squad ahead of games against Slovakia and Wales this week.

This bizarre turn of events comes after a dispute over commercial rights, according to an ESPN source.

The squad included Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen, Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen and Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

The Danish Football Association (DBU) must now find a brand new 23 man squad from scratch in time for the fixtures.

These players must also be from outside the Players’ Association to be legible to play.

The DBU’s negotiations with the Danish Football Players’ Association broke down when discussing the players’ rights to make individual sponsorship agreements with companies competing with national team sponsors.

On Sunday, the players refused to sign a new deal, missing the deadline set by the DBU.

Emails have now been sent to clubs informing them that their players will not be needed.
