Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner looks set to win his battle to be fit for his side's opening World Cup clash with Holland on Monday.

The Arsenal striker has been out of action since May having suffered a groin injury but has been upbeat in recent days about his chances of being fit in time.

The 22-year-old took part in full training on Tuesday along with team-mate and fellow injury doubt Simon Kjaer.

"I've been training hard with the physical trainer and I'm one of those with the best heart rate in the squad," Bendtner told

"The football side of things shouldn't be any problem either."
