Carlo Holse is a part of a very interesting generation of FC Copenhagen players born in 1999 which includes, among others, Mads Roerslev, Jonas Older Wind, Luka Racic, Morten Hjulmand and Niklas Vesterlund. Currently, they have all been playing very well in the UEFA Youth League, where Copenhagen unexpectedly advanced to the knockout round. Carlo is also a regular player for the Danish youth national teams – he made his debut for Denmark’s Under-16s as a 15-year-old and now is a member of U-19 team. In 2016, he played at the European U-17 Championship, where Danes failed to advance from a very tough group containing France, England and Sweden.
