Stoke keeper Sorensen out of Denmark Euro 2012 squad

Stoke City keeper Thomas Sorensen has been ruled out of Denmark's Euro 2012 squad after suffering a back injury in training.

Leicester's Kasper Schmeichel has now been drafted in as the third keeper behind Stephan Andersen and Anders Lindegaard.

"Thomas has suffered an injury in his back," said Morten Olsen.

"It means unfortunately that it is unlikely that he will recover in time to be available for matches for the finals."

Sorensen was hugely disappointed to miss out, saying: "I am deeply unhappy about it. I've been with the team for most of qualifying, and had looked forward to my fifth finals with the national team.

"But I also understand that it is a big risk to go with an injured goalkeeper and therefore I respect Morten's decision, even if it hurts."
