World Cup Qualifying Game Time Thread: Italy vs. Denmark

Danishes are delicious. I'd love one right about now.

Qualifying for the 2014 World Cup rolls on. We shall call this next game against Denmark 'The Bendtner Bowl.'

Yes, that seems right. Or maybe it's just because there's no Schmeichels within the squad.

Italy currently sit atop the group with seven points from three games, two points ahead of Bulgaria. Denmark, however, has gotten off to a rough start in group play, currently sitting second from the bottom with just two points.

Will Nicklas Bendtner make some kind of impact like he did in Denmark's 1-1 draw against Bulgaria on Friday? Or will ItalJuve being able to shake off the concerns from the 3-1 win over Armenia and put in a good display before everybody goes back to their respective clubs?

There's only one way to find out. That's they play the game!
