PositionForward

One of the few youngsters to break into the Denmark squad, Dennis won his first cap against the Faroe Islands in August 2000 and was an ever-present in his country's successful campaign to qualify for the 2002 World Cup finals.

A small and nippy striker, he developed with Lyngby before pursuing his career in the Netherlands with RKC Waalwijk and PSV.

A regular in the Eindhoven first-team in recent seasons gaining Champions' League and UEFA Cup experience, he is more of a goal creator than a scorer.
Although he signed a new four-year contract in November 2001, such clubs as Parma and Internazionale were rumoured to be chasing his signature.
Dennis scored Denmark's first goal as they beat France 2-0 in their final Group A game at the 2002 World Cup finals as the Danes knocked out the reigning champions.
Dennis joined Charlton Athletic in July 2004 with a contract to June 2008.
