After a slow and sloppy start to the season for Tottenham, Christian Eriksen looks to have finally discovered some form on international duty after a strange week for Danish football.

After a contract dispute between the Danish Football Association (DBU) and the players, the manager was forced to field a team of lower league and futsal players in their 3-0 defeat to Slovakia last week.

However, fast forward a few days, dispute done and dusted, and the first team was out to impress for their country, with a solid 2-0 win over Bale and Wales.

Christian Eriksen was at the double, scoring a fabulous brace past the Welsh keeper.

Just past the half hour mark, right back Dalsgaard pulled his cross back to the unmarked Tottenham man, who, in typical Eriksen fashion, controlled with his first touch, before sweeping it into the far corner with his second.

Fast forward another 30 minutes and Eriksen had his second, after a handball resulted in a penalty kick for Denmark.

Eriksen stepped up calmly, before rifling the ball into the top right corner. Unstoppable.

With the minutes ticking away, Christian almost had his hat trick from a free kick, but Hennessey tipped to ball over with his fingertips.

Denmark had their 2-0 win, Eriksen had his two goals, and the country looked to put their controversial week behind them.
