Preben Elkjaer Larsen scored 38 times in 69 international appearances and was a key member of the beloved 'Danish Dynamite' team of the mid-1980s.

He also boasts an impressive 100 per cent scoring ratio at the FIFA World Cup™, having struck four times in as many appearances at Mexico 1986.

The highlight of his and Denmark’s campaign came when he scored a hat-trick in a 6-1 thrashing of Uruguay, although hopes of going the distance would be dashed by a similarly emphatic 5-1 defeat to Spain in the Round of 16.
