Denmark’s Soccer Team is Warming up in Singapore

In his usual demanding fashion, head coach Morten Olsen only gave the 20 players about 45 minutes to unpack after the 16 hour flight from Copenhagen, before taking them through some light exercise around the hotel’s pool and fitness center. Thus, the team quickly got acquainted with the high humidity and the heat (coming from a freezing, winter-struck Denmark, Singapore’s 28 degrees is quite the temperature change).

The players will have until Thursday evening to get used to the climate, since they play their first ever friendly against Singapore’s national team at the National Stadium at 7.30pm (local time). The team will go through two training sets on Tuesday (at 10.30am and 6pm). On Wednesday the team will again train twice (at 10am and 6pm), giving the young players plenty of opportunities to impress the national coach.

Tickets for the game go on sale Tuesday and Wednesday at the Football Association of Singapore’s offices at the Jalan Besar Stadium during office hours. Matchday ticket sales start from 5pm at the East Entrance of the National Stadium. Prices range from S$6 to S$10 for adults, while children get in for S$2.

The game in Singapore is the team’s final stop before flying to Hong Kong on Friday to play in the Carlsberg Cup against Hong Kong, and possibly Croatia or South Korea. After this, the team will fly back via Singapore and Bangkok on February 2nd on their way back to Copenhagen.
