Christian Eriksen plays two incredible passes during Denmark vs France
The Manchester United midfielder is enjoying a fine international break after scoring a screamer during his side’s 2-1 defeat to Croatia on Thursday.
However, on Sunday, he turned on the style big time.
Denmark hosted France knowing a victory would secure top spot in League A Group 1, ahead of Croatia.
And Eriksen played a huge role in giving Denmark a 2-0 lead at half time.
efore they had even opened the scoring, he produced a stunning ball over the top to Skov Olsen. Olsen took a sensational touch but couldn’t quite finish past the Alphonse Areola – the Dane was also flagged offside.
But what a pass it was from Eriksen.
The former Spurs and Brentford man didn’t stop there, though.
He played a huge role in the first goal too.
He sprayed the ball out to Mikkel Damsgaard, who played a lovely low cross to Kasper Dolberg who have the home side the lead.
It was then from Eriksen’s corner that Olsen made it 2-0
Deschamps ‘surprised’ by Eriksen
You’d think that France manager, Didier Deschamps, would have had a plan for Eriksen considering he admitted this week that he’s been ‘surprised’ by the midfielder.
“There is an attacking player who even surprised me, and not just because of what had happened that could have been dramatic for him, and obviously it’s Christian Eriksen,” Deschamps said.
“But the ability that he shows with his club in the position he plays, because he has always been someone who has a remarkable technical ability.
“But to play so frequently for his club in the midfield, to see the volume of games he plays, this ability even to recover is impressive.
“And he has always had the ability to score goals, to make other players score – he has always had that.”
