Manchester United keeper Anders Lindegaard has been confirmed as a member of Denmark's Euro 2012 squad.

Coach Morten Olsen had left Lindegaard out when he unveiled his squad earlier this week because he wanted more time to work out whether the United man had recovered from the ankle injury that kept him out of first-team action since January.

Lindegaard was confident he would be fine and it has taken just a couple of days' training for Olsen to reach the same conclusion.

"We have never been in doubt about Anders' qualities,'' said Olsen. "It has purely been a matter of testing how he was after his long injury break. After three training sessions we are in no doubt that we've got an injury-free third keeper in our squad.''
