Lovenkrands Has Other Things On His Mind Than Denmark

Peter Lovenkrands, Newcastle’s Danish striker, has talked today about the possibility of being recalled to Denmark’s squad for the World Cup in South Africa this summer.

Peter Lovenkrands – other things on Peter’s mind these days

But it certainly seems that Peter has other things on his mind right now – more important things.

Peter talked to the Newcastle Journal this morning:

“I haven’t heard anything directly from the national team, but people in Denmark have been writing about it because things are going so well for me at Newcastle.”

“I haven’t been involved since the Portugal qualifier and even then I played at left wing-back which was strange. Right now I’m just focusing on my family and the support they need.”

“After that, it’s Newcastle and making sure we get back into the Premier League. I’ve not really thought about the World Cup.”

Although Lovenkrands seems rather skeptical about returning to international football,  he would nevertheless be more than pleased to get a call from his country – maybe for next month’s international friendly fixtures.

Peter continued:

“If it comes then I will take it and I will be absolutely delighted to be involved. Of course I’d love to play in a World Cup.”

“But I’ve got so many other things to occupy my mind. I’ll just keep doing what I’m doing and we’ll see whether the call comes.”

Of course Peter has just gone through the tragedy of losing his father in January, and he is still quite young.

That always focuses the mind on what”s really important in life, and Peter seems to be going through that now – and of course the family always comes in number one.

Peter’s done great this year for Newcastle United, and we hope it continues – we need him badly.

    this lad has started to knock goals in for fun & for him to be replaced in attack with the second rate leon best is nothing short of a disgrace.

    peter – you’ll probably have to move on to be appreciated & to get a deserved call up to the national team.

    I think we will see Loven get a start next week but I also think that houghton is hoping Shola will get back to what he did at the start of the season and start putting some goals in. There is a lot of choice up front but I’d love to see us go with three up front. Carroll in the middle with Loven and Best supporting.

    Loven being replaced by Best is indeed a strange one.
