The Denmark League XI national football team is an unofficial national football team run by the Danish Football Association.
The team generally consists of Danish players playing in the Danish Superliga, or other leagues if the clubs there agree to release them. It is only assembled in the start of the year, during the winter break in the Superliga.
The matches of the League XI have generally not been recognised as official matches by the Danish FA, although FIFA recognised matches until 2007.
A Danish Football Combination played the Scottish League XI in 1955. Since 1983, the team has been assembled every year except 2005 (because of an early World Cup qualification match) and 2011 (where no suitable trip could be arranged) in January or February.
The purpose of the league XI is to give the head coach an opportunity to evaluate the level of the best players of the Superliga, and to introduce new players into the atmosphere of the national team.
The squad below was selected on 10 December 2012 to play against Mexico and Canada. Listed caps and goals are for the league XI only.
