King's Lynn's Niels-Kristian Iversen will be looking to help Denmark secure back-to-back Speedway World Cup titles this evening.

The Stars ace takes to the shale in Czech Republic with his country being tipped as red-hot favourites alongside Poland. The 31-year-old's country will also compete against the Czechs and Australia – who won Thursday's last chance saloon Race-off to qualify – come tapes up in Prague.

Iversen – the Stars' number one rider – is already a three-time winner of the Ove Fundin Trophy, as is his team-mate and ex-Lynn racer Nicki Pedersen.
