How is Knudsen's name pronounced? ITV seem to insist on calling him Ka-nudsen, but it doesn't sound right to me.

What about Jørgensen, for that matter? I've heard about three different pronunciations and would like to know which one is right (partly because my star defensive midfielder in FM13 has that name).

Well it's not Ka-nudsen, just remove the 'a' and you're good to go. :)

Jørgensen is straight forward too, the ø is similarly pronounced to the English 'i' in words like bird, first.

Here they tend to pronounce the 'Jør' part like the English word 'Your'. :thdn:

No one will be offended when people can't say æ or ø or å. :)  Jorgensen or any permutation is fine really.

I think that's how Al Jourgensen's name mutated because he's originally from Cuba so may have changed spelling in line with the Hispanic pronunciation.

EDIT oh wait he legally changed his name to that after his mother remarried, he was born Alejandro Ramirez Casas.

Are Croatia playing wingbacks? 

Denmark are doing a tactical job on nullifying their wide areas. Modric and Rakatik are nowhere to be seen too. 

Denmark might just do this. Croatia need to turn up quick!

@Nordan does the ø in Nordic languages work the same way as ö in Germanic languages? Like, would it be expanded to an oe sound (like Özil becomes Oezil)? Just wondering cos I know of a Danish band called Møl but they put their Twitter tag as @moeldk

Yep. And Æ= ae and Å= aa

I meant in writing.

Sounds like the 'o' in words like more, core etc.

Yeah I just found a video of the only person with an Å in their name that I know, Mikael Åkerfeldt, saying his name. It's pronounced like Orkerfeldt.

(My only reference points for foreign names come from metal bands ok)
