Ex-Arsenal ace Bendtner shows off new look in shock appearance in Denmark World Cup 2022 squad announcement video | The Sun

FORMER Arsenal star Nicklas Bendtner has shown off his new look in Denmark's squad announcement video for the 2022 World Cup.

Boss Kasper Hjulmand confirmed his 26-man party for the tournament in Qatar on Monday.

The clip was released on Twitter, with the retired striker making a shock appearance.

Bendtner featured for a couple of seconds wearing a white bucket hat.

The 34-year-old is seen showing off his new hair cut, while punching his chest.

And Bendtner's role didn't go unnoticed, either.

One supporter said: 'Lord Bendtner' followed by a heart eyes emoji, while a second replied 'Why did I get emotional seeing Bendtner in a bucket hat?'

A third simply stated: 'beautiful'.

Bendtner is clearly popular with the Danish fans, and for good reason too.

While he had a strange career in club football, he generally excelled when he put on a Denmark shirt.
