Elias Sorensen called up by Denmark
News on Wednesday afternoon that Elias Sorense has been called up by his country.
A lack of club football proving no barrier to his selection, having played only 32 minutes for Blackpool after going on loan two months ago.
The Denmark Under 20s will play Romania in Marbella on Monday, Sorensen joining up with his international teammates.
Little surprise really, as after scoring 19 goals for Newcastle’s reserves in the opening half of the season, Elias Sorensen was selected in a Denmark Under 21s team to travel to Mexico.
They played two friendlies, Sorensen coming off the bench to score the only goal of the game, then against the same opposition he started and scored, although Mexico ended up winning that one 2-1. That made it 21 goals for club and country before his so far ill-fated loan move to Blackpool.

‘Mo Sangare has been called up to Liberia’s squad for their crunch Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against DR Congo next Sunday.
Liberia will progress to their first finals since 2002 – and just the third in their history – should they see off the Leopards, who have included former Magpies defender Chancel Mbemba in their own 24-man squad.
A draw will be enough for Thomas Kojo’s side if Congo fail to beat Zimbabwe away from home. Lose, however, and they will definitely be out.
After playing DR Congo in Kinshasa, Liberia travel to the Ivory Coast for a friendly encounter in Bouaké.
Meanwhile, Elias Sørensen will link up with Denmark Under-20s for a friendly against Romania in Marbella a week on Monday.’
