Jores Okore

This young man has enjoyed a rapid rise to international stardom in the last few months as he only made his debut in senior first team football for Nordsjaelland a few months before Morten Olsen came calling to hand him his Denmark debut against Sweden last November.

Hailing from the Ivory Coast, he qualifies to play for Denmark after growing up in Copenhagen and his fast-track onto the international stage was confirmed as he claimed one of the final spots up for grabs in Olsen’s Euro 2012 squad.

So powerful and dominant for a player of such tender years, this centre-back is likely to be a bench warmer for the Danes this summer, but he will benefit from the exposure to the big-time tournament atmosphere.
