24 minutes into the game was not enough for Kasper Hjulmand.
The message to Martin Braithwaite thus seemed crystal clear: Get more into the fight – or wave goodbye to the World Cup.
But the prospect of more playing time is minimal, writes the Barcelona newspaper Sport. So either Braithwaite’s dream of being in Barcelona dies, or his dream of another World Cup with Denmark dies.
– Braithwaite must go to play the World Cup, it sounds from the big media.
– The approach of Adama (Traore, ed.), Aubameyang and Ferran (Torres, ed.) Has referred him to the last option among Xavi’s priorities.
The newspaper mentions that the Danish striker has not completely got rid of the discomfort in his back that has plagued him, but he is fit enough to join the combat troops, so they do not put so much into the minor back problem.
– With his 30 years, Martin is at an important moment in his career. He is aware that the decision he makes this summer will mark a before and after for him, writes Sport.

Braithwaite has a contract until the summer of 2024, and he has stated on every given occasion that he will stay and fight for his opportunities in the big club. That battle has only gotten tougher as time has progressed.
There are only two national team deadlines left before the World Cup: One in June and one in September. Here, Denmark plays a total of six Nations League matches.
Braithwaite was with the Danish national team at both the WC 2018 and EC 2021. He has appeared in all finals matches during that period, so it would be a big change for him if he can not play in Qatar.
