PHILIP Billing admits “it is frustrating” not to have made his senior Denmark debut after being left out of the squad for this month’s Euro 2020 qualifiers, but insists he wishes his nation “all the best”.

The midfielder, 23, has been in fine form for Cherries this season, starting all 12 Premier League matches following his £15million summer arrival from Huddersfield Town.

Billing was selected by boss Åge Hareide during the past two international breaks, but was an unused substitute for qualifiers against Gibraltar, Georgia and Switzerland, as well as a friendly clash with Luxembourg.

The Cherries ace featured at both under-19 and under-21 level for Denmark, but is yet to make his senior bow and will not travel for upcoming crunch games against Gibraltar and Ireland.

Denmark are set to change bosses in the summer of 2020 with former Mainz manager Kasper Hjulmand lined up to replace Hareide.

Discussing his thoughts at being left out of the latest international squad, Billing told the Daily Echo: “I have to be careful because I made some comments before.

“He (Hareide) picks the squad. He has obviously picked a Championship player in front of me (Brentford’s uncapped Christian Norgaard), which if he thinks he is better then that is how it is. But I haven’t gone into it too much.

“I have days off now, so I will just enjoy them and chill and wish Denmark all the best.”

Asked how desperate he is to make his first Denmark appearance, Billing added: “It is something I want to do and it is one of my goals to get in that team.

“It is frustrating when I haven’t got my debut yet but that is just how it is. He picks the team, I don’t.

“But soon there is a new manager coming in (Hjulmand) and maybe things will change, I don’t know.

“But that is one of my goals, to get in that squad and I will keep working hard to do that.

“I haven’t talked to him (Hareide). It is just a decision he has made. I am not the manager there, I am not going to pick myself.

“He picks the team and if he doesn’t pick me, it is no problem.”

Billing, along with the rest of the squad who are not on international duty, are currently enjoying some downtime before returning to training later this week. Cherries next host Wolverhampton Wanderers on November 23, with the clubs side by side in ninth and eighth respectively in the Premier League table, locked on 16 points apiece.

Asked what he plans to do during the break, Billing said: “We have been given four or five days off, but I am going to probably come in because I am not going to be good with that long time off.”
