Denmark scrambled together a new squad and an interim coach Tuesday to fulfil the national team's obligations for upcoming matches against Slovakia and Wales amid a pay dispute involving its best players.The names of the players were published later Tuesday by the Slovak Football Association.They come from the country's lower leagues, with Danish media reporting some futsal players were also called up.Negotiations have collapsed between Denmark's players' union and the DBU over a new collective agreement regarding commercial rights, meaning players from the original squad – including Christian Eriksen and Kasper Schmeichel – were sent back to their clubs Monday.The union says players want sponsorship deals made by the association to continue to focus on the team and not individual players.
