Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen’s goals and assists for Denmark show a player in red hot ahead of Liverpool game
Christian Eriksen is a man in form, judging by this latest statistic.
The 26-year-old has been directly involved in 19 goals in his last 18 appearances for Denmark, scoring 14 times and providing five assists.
“When you give Eriksen that space on the edge of the box you are in trouble. We kept him quiet but he has quality and makes the right decision and the right execution,” Wales manager Ryan Giggs said.
The Danish public were no doubt relieved to see their senior squad back to full strength again after a row between the country’s FA and player’s union over image rights, which embarrassed them during the last week.
Denmark had fielded lower league and futsal players in their 3-0 friendly defeat to Slovakia on Wednesday, with temporary manager John Jensen revealing he had to ask who his players were and what position they played in ahead of the defeat.
