Bruun Larsen had actually been called up for the under-21 team, but the Danish Football Association has announced that the winger has now been moved to the senior squad, replacing FC Copenhagen's Robert Skov who has picked up an injury.
"I was informed this morning at 9 am, and of course it made me happy. Playing for the senior national team has always been a childhood dream for me," Bruun Larsen told Danish news outlet bold.dk.
"Now I need to get to know the squad and how they do things, and then I'll show what I can do," he added.
Bruun Larsen, 20, has made 24 appearances for Dortmund this season with three goals and two assists to his name.
The young winger has appeared nine times for the Danish under-21 team, scoring three goals.
