Possibility of most ever current Bees playing in an international/tournament fixture??
Any idea what current record is??

Easily the most. As mentioned above, Dalsgaard was the first and only player to appear in a World Cup Tournament.

The Euro's has five Bees players. Halil being the first to play in this UEFA sanctioned tournament.

The only comparison would be the British Home Internationals between England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Two fixtures; Wales (Hopkins & Richards) v Scotland (McCulloch) and Wales (Hopkins, Richards) v England (Scott), during 1936/1937, included Three Brentford players who appeared in those two matches.

The first in the African Cup of Nations Finals would be Mokotjo (South Africa) or Jeanvier (Guinea). Haven't looked to see who was first!!

Cheers. 👍
So 3 would match the most in any international, and 2 or more would be a record for "tournament" football?

Onni Valakari who scored the “other” goal v France is in the squad but not on the bench today. He is only 21 and plays for Paphos

The finnish keeper looks like a disaster waiting to happen. Throwing the ball at the strikers head was pretty funny, not sure why it was given a foul to be honest!

I’m definitely sure Jensen would improve Denmark here

He sort of stumbled forward face down by the touch line and the ball then hit him and went straight back to the other Danish player, players for a couple of seconds looked confused then panic calls to medical team.

Worst thing I've seen on a football pitch, absolutely horrifying. Hoping against hope he pulls through.

Like everyone im sure, truly in shock watching that. Fingers crossed he is okay but it really doesnt look good. The players and everyone around looked distraught. A reminder of how fragile we truly are. Thoughts with eriksen, his family, friends and teammates
