Middlesbrough recently made their first big move ahead of the Premier League season, by bringing Viktor Fischer to the club from Ajax.

The young attacker had once been dubbed the Danish Messi and Boro fans are right to be excited about his potential – as long as he stays fit.

Viktor Fischer celebrates after scoring the first goal for Ajax

He joined the club at the end of last month for a fee reported by The Gazette to be in the region of £3.8 million from the Dutch giants.

Shortly after agreeing to sign for the club he headed out to Japan to feature for his nation in the Kirin Cup.

The Danish national team failed to qualify for the European Championships in France this summer and therefore took the chance for some competitive action in the Far East.

Fischer certainly enjoyed himself in the game. Boro’s new boy scored the second goal for Denmark. He gave his nation a 2-0 lead after smashing home a half volley after a deflected cross ended up at his feet.

Unfortunately, the result did not end up going his way. Bosnia booked their place in the final v Japan on penalties after a Milan Duric double took the game beyond 90 minutes.
