Jelert: A big surprise
"It's gone really well for me, and it's great that I've been selected for the national team," says Jelert.
"Things have gone well at the club this spring, and we are always there for each other on the pitch, and that makes it easier for individuals to perform well.
"Although it's progressing well, I in no way expected to be selected for the national team, so it's a great surprise.
"Right now I'm looking forward to playing in Parken on Sunday for FCK, and after that it will be great to be part of the national team."
