Denmark coach Morten Olsen has announced his confirmed 23-man squad for the 2010 World Cup. The Danish gaffer dropped three players from his provisional squad after the 2-0 friendly win against Senegal on Thursday.

Shot stopper Kim Christensen (Goteborg) and midfielders Michael Krohn-Dehli (Brondby) and Michael Silberbauer (Utrecht) didn't survive the cut and won't make it to South Africa.

The exclusion of Christensen and Krohn-Dehli didn't come as much of a surprise, but Silberbauer recently stated that he was confident to make the Danish team for this summer's tournament.

The Danes lock horns with Holland, Cameroon and Japan in the group phase of the 2010 World Cup. Danish Dynamite start the tournament with a match against Holland on June 14.
