Sorensen doubtful for Euro 2012 opener

Denmark goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen may not play in their opening Euro 2012 match against Netherlands, coach Morten Olsen said on Saturday.

Speaking after a 3-1 friendly defeat by Brazil, Olsen was critical of the Stoke City goalkeeper who was substituted in the first half suffering from a back injury.

"It's a goalkeeper drop, no doubt about it," Olsen told TV3.

"I've always said that... it's good that we are clear about who the first-choice goalkeeper is."

"But I've also said - and not least about the goakeeper's position - that it's about finding a formation where the individuals are in good form."

Also in contention to replace Sorensen is Manchester United's Anders Lindegaard who has recovered from a knee injury.

Denmark's final friendly before Euro 2012 is against Australia in Copenhagen on June 2.

They then face Netherlands on June 9 in Kharkiv, before taking on Portugal and Germany.
