Daniel Agger donates to help send Denmark team to Homeless World Cup

Denmark was trying to send a team to the Homeless World Cup, which kicks off in October in Chile, but had come up short 20,000 kroner (about $3,500). They team had already raised a lot of money, so new donors were hard to come by and time was running out.

In stepped Daniel Agger.

The Danish international asked an Ombold board member — the organization sending the Denmark team to the tournament — how things were going. When he found out they were in need of money to be able to fund the trip, Agger didn’t hesitate to tell them he’d give them the money.

"You just tell me where and when to spend the money; and also if there is anything else I can do," Agger said.

What a selfless and wonderful act, Mr. Agger.

Daniel Agger gives young fan shirt after plunking him with ball

Well, that’s one way to go about getting a soccer player’s shirt.

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger, training with Denmark’s national team, sent a wayward ball that wound up finding the face of an unsuspecting kid behind the goal.

Upon realizing he’d drilled someone, Agger, ever the nice gent that he is, went to go check on the fan.

Cool enough, right? Well, it gets even cooler. Agger then hopped over the barrier — much to the amusement of the other kids — to make sure the youngster was OK.

After a short conversation, the Danish international then gave the dazed boy his shirt.

What a memorable experience! And in case the woozy fan might be a little foggy on the details, he can just turn to the tape.
