Philip Billing had interesting weeks in terms of his international career.
Nigeria identified the player in Huddersfield Town as potential recruits for him, even though he was born in Denmark.
Country manager Gernot Rohr spoke publicly, although billing falsely thought that billing was not Danish but English.
Not surprisingly, the 22-year-old currently has an international future with Denmark in mind. This includes playing at the U21 European Championship in San Marino next year. The tournament takes place from June 16th to 30th, and the Danish newspaper BT is not sure if Huddersfield will release the player. Maybe he prefers to rest.
Billing is pretty optimistic and tells BT: "Of course there is a long season here in England and there are many games. But I am sure that the club will let me into the U21-Euro-round. I am positive."

The youngster was also asked for his brilliant breakthrough in the Premier League. He made it clear that he is ambitious and that, if everything goes according to plan, his goals are to leave Huddersfield Town one day: "At the moment my ambition always only plays. But in the long run I want to achieve a lot. I want to have a great career in the Premier League and hopefully someday play for a big club. And try to play in the Champions League. I also want to try to participate in a World Cup – and in the other big competitions.
"In general, you achieve what a top player achieves. Because I am firmly convinced that I have the qualities to become a top player. But now it's about Huddersfield, and then we have to see what happens in the future. "
It's perfectly understandable to aim for a top club in the Premier League and Champions League football. Billing knows that if he has the chance to make that dream come true, he will continue to impress his current club.
