Copenhagen:

Groningen striker Nicklas Pedersen and Jores Okore, a defender with FC Nordsjaelland, are the last two players to join the Denmark squad for the European Championship.

Coach Morten Olsen says Pedersen had been training with the Danish squad before he was officially picked on Thursday. Olsen says he wanted to test Pedersen's physical fitness, and adds: "He has passed."

Pedersen has seven caps and Okore has played for Denmark twice.

Last week, Olsen picked Anders Lindegaard of Manchester United as Denmark's third goalie. His squad also includes Nicklas Bendtner, Dennis Rommedahl, Christian Eriksen and Daniel Agger.

Denmark will play against powerhouses Germany, the Netherlands and Portugal in Group B.

Euro 2012 runs from June 8 to July 1.
