Romm on top form

Dennis Rommedahl reinforced his claim for a place in the starting line up against Chelsea on Saturday with a sparkling performance for Denmark against Iceland last night. It also gives him bragging rights over Hermann Hreidarsson who had been hoping for Iceland's first victory against their former rulers.

The Uefa report states, 'Dennis Rommedahl was in inspired form, scoring one and setting up the other as Denmark eased to a 2-0 victory against Iceland to get their UEFA EURO 2008™ Group F campaign off to a winning start. Rommedahl was the architect of many of Iceland's problems, with the winger giving the Danes a dream start with the opener on five minutes, latching on to Christian Poulsen's pinpoint pass and striding clear of the Iceland back line before slotting past Árni Arason in the home goal. Arason did well to keep out Thomas Kahlenberg's fierce drive from distance soon after but was again helpless when Jon Dahl Tomasson tucked in Rommedahl's teasing cross.'

There is an argument for using a 4-5-1 against Chelsea even if it meant relegating Hasselbaink to the bench. It is important to stop Chelsea getting too many players forward while Rommedahl could test them with his pace.
