Denmark coach Morten Olsen has included injured goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen in his 30-man provisional World Cup squad.

Sorensen dislocated his elbow last month while playing for Premier League club Stoke but is hopeful about recovering for the World Cup.

Other names in the squad include Feyenoord striker Jon Dahl Tomasson, Ajax winger Dennis Rommedahl and Liverpool defender Daniel Agger.

An unexpected pick was 29-year-old Malaga defender Patrick Mtiliga, who has little national team experience.

Denmark has been drawn in Group E with the Netherlands, Japan and Cameroon.
