Tottenham playmaker Eriksen was selected to start for Denmark against Ireland yesterday, and he helped them claim the point that they needed in Dublin to progress to next summer’s competition.
Eriksen simply posted out a photo of the Denmark team celebrating, but even that caused some anger among Tottenham fans.
Eriksen has been widely criticised by Spurs supporters this season, after a series of below par performances.
Eriksen has just months remaining on his current contract at Tottenham, and his commitment has been questioned by some supporters.
And the reaction to what was meant to be a celebratory tweet shows just how out of favour Eriksen has fallen with Spurs fans.
Congrats man! Maybe post some stuff to do with spurs so people think u care? Cheers bro

Despite Tottenham supporters anger towards Eriksen, Mauricio Pochettino has actually picked him fairly regularly.
Pochettino has shown faith in Eriksen to rediscover his best form, but the attacking midfielder has shown no signs that he is close to returning to the top of his game.
Spurs are next in action against West Ham United, when Eriksen looks likely to start from the bench.
