Winger Dennis Rommedahl will miss Denmark's final Euro 2012 group game against Germany due to a hamstring strain picked up in Wednesday's 3-2 defeat by Portugal.
"As it looks now, Dennis is out of the game against Germany," coach Morten Olsen told a news conference on Thursday.
"Muscle injuries like this take time."
Rommedahl - who was nowhere near his best form in the two Group B games to date - pulled up while sprinting after a ball on the hour mark and was replaced by Tobias Mikkelsen, who is likely to keep his place against Germany on Sunday.
"Tobias made a fantastic switch, he's come in with great spirit and enthusiasm for a player not used to playing at this level," Olsen added.
