Goal Scorer:

On the back of scoring five goals in qualifying and snubbing interest from Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United to sign a new contract with RB Leipzig, 21-year-old attacking hotshot Benjamin Sesko headlines the Slovenia selection, which also includes former Atalanta BC star Josip Ilicic.

However, the 36-year-old - now representing Maribor in his homeland - will likely lose out to Panathinaikos attacker Andraz Sporar for the second striker's spot alongside Sesko, while Atletico Madrid number one Jan Oblak sports the captain's armband in between the posts.

In terms of Slovenia's fitness situation, winger Benjamin Verbic was unable to complete the full training session on Wednesday and is a slight doubt, but right-back Peter Stojanovic has made a full recovery from the muscle injury that forced him to miss both of this month's friendlies.
Slovenia possible starting lineup:
Oblak; Karnicnik, Blazic, Bijol, Janza; Horvat, Gnezda Cerin, Elsnik, Mlakar; Sesko, Sporar

Meanwhile, Denmark boss Hjulmand has already been forced to make one alteration to his final squad, as Galatasaray defender Victor Nelsson succumbed to injury and had to be replaced by Zanka, one of four Brentford players in the Red and Whites' ranks.

On a much brighter note, Christian Eriksen is fit and raring to go three years after his traumatising cardiac arrest at Euro 2020; the Manchester United man is the highest goalscorer in the current squad with 41 and second-most capped behind all-time record holder Simon Kjaer (132).

While Eriksen is surely nailed-on to start, the same cannot be said of ageing defender Kjaer, while Bees midfielder Christian Norgaard missed training on Thursday for precautionary reasons but is expected to be fine for the weekend.
Denmark possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Andersen, Christensen, Vestergaard; Maehle, Hojbjerg, Hjulmand, Kristiansen; Eriksen; Hojlund, Damsgaard
Prediction: Slovenia 1-2 Denmark
