Injured Agger out of Denmark friendlies

COPENHAGEN - Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has withdrawn from Denmark's November friendlies against South Korea and the United States with a back injury, the FA said on Tuesday.

The Liverpool centre-back has missed three of Denmark's nine matches this year because of the injury, which resurfaced in Monday's 2-2 draw with Birmingham City in the Premier League.

Agger has been replaced in the squad by OB Odense's Anders Moller Christensen for the matches on November 14 and 18 in Esbjerg and Aarhus, the Danish FA website said.
