Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen starred for Denmark on Tuesday night against Ireland.
Tottenham's Christian Eriksen was in excellent form for Denmark during the international break.
Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen was part of the Denmark side that drew 0-0 with Ireland on Saturday.
Roy Keane said last week the key to Martin O’Neill’s celebrated motivational acumen boils down to a knack for saying the right thing at the right time. So it was intriguing, on the eve of Tuesday’s second leg of the tautly wound World Cup play‑off between the Republic of Ireland and Denmark, to hear O’Neill tease his captain, David Meyler, about missing penalties in training.

Easy to read, difficult to beat. The Denmark manager, Age Hareide, took no satisfaction from the fact that his pre-match assessment of this Republic of Ireland team turned out to be prophetic. Martin O’Neill, meanwhile, is happy that Ireland’s World Cup fate will be determined in Dublin, a goalless draw ensuring the suspense in this play-off will carry over into Tuesday’s second leg.
The United Nations has classed Denmark as the happiest country in the world for three of the past five years, with Gallup research reckoning that the average Dane experiences 80 positive emotions per day.
