Lars Jacobsen - He is still considered by Morten Olsen to be first choice as a right-full back. He started his career with home town club OB Odense and after six seasons with them he joined Bundesliga club Hamburger SV in 2002.

His time with HSV was not a success and after one and a half seasons he went back to Danish club FC Copenhagen. He quickly became a part of the starting line-up, playing in different positions in defense and played so well that he made his international debut in March 2006.

In 2007, he went back to Germany to play for FC Nuremberg but his stay with the German club was troubled because of injuries and he was released by the club when they were relegated at the end of the season.

English club Everton signed him on a one year contract but again injuries restricted the number of appearances though he did manage to come on as a substitute in the 2009 FA Cup final. Blackburn signed him for the 2009-10 season but he is finding it hard to gain a place as a regular in the first team.

In the international friendly against Spain on August 20, 2008 Jacobsen was not contracted to any club.
