FCN Academy, Denmark
Mikkel Damsgaard is a graduate of the FCN Academy, Denmark, and now plays for Premier League side Brentford and the Danish national team.
Hailing from the small Danish town of Jyllinge, Damsgaard has always been a quiet yet confident player. Despite being one of the smaller players on the pitch, his quick thinking and confidence always gave him an edge over his opponents.
At just 13 years old, he joined FCN Academy, Denmark, and persevered through some tough years before breaking into the Superliga team at just 17. In his final season in the Danish Superliga, Dams scored 11 goals and made five assists, earning him a spot on the Team of the Year and the Young Player of the Year title.
Dams then made the move to Serie A side UC Sampdoria, and his impressive performances earned him a spot on the Danish national team, and he later featured in the 2022 FIFA Men’s World Cup.
Today, Dams now plays for Brentford in the Premier League, showcasing his incredible talent and determination.
Keep shining, Dams!
