As expected, Ludwig Augustinsson and Thomas Delaney should have high hopes of playing a part in the 2018 World Cup. Werder’s Scandinavian duo both have places in their national teams’ preliminary squads for the tournament in Russia.
The Danish Football Association (DBU) announced on Monday afternoon that Thomas Delaney had been selected, while on Tuesday at 18.00 it was revealed that Ludwig Augustinsson is highly likely to make the journey with Sweden. National coach Janne Andersson called up the left-back, who has made 29 Bundesliga appearances for Werder this season.
The provisional Serbia squad is still yet to be announced. During the last three international breaks, central defender Milos Veljkovic has consistently been named in the squad by the national coach and former Werder defender Mladen Krstajic, having made his debut in a friendly against China last November.
