Tottenham star wants to keep up international goal scoring form

Christian Eriksen was at the double for Denmark against Wales this week, scoring a brace past Hennessey through the international break.

This came after the Danish players and the Danish Football Association had a controversial dispute over contracts.

The Denmark manager was forced to field a side of lower league players and futsal stars in their first game against Slovakia earlier in the week.

However, with their full compliment of stars back on the pitch, Denmark eased to a solid win against Bale and Wales.

Eriksen is yet to score in the Premier League this season for Tottenham, and his performances have been a little below par in recent weeks.

The great Dane is now hoping to recreate his goal scoring form for Denmark in a Spurs shirt.

Eriksen told SkySports: “It’s great to have that form, going into the weekend.

“I’ve always had many shots, even in the Premier League, but I just haven’t scored yet.

“I’m trying to get in good positions in every game to create something or take a shot, but they just keep flying in for the national team.

“Penalties are easy if you score, but in open play we create chances as well.

“I’m a little bit further up the pitch here and not so much involved in the build-up because we probably have less of a build-up than we do at Spurs.

“It’s a bit different with Denmark, we go for the long ball a bit earlier and try to get the second ball.

“Everyone wants to play like Spurs. We want to play attractive football, get the ball forward and create chances with good possession.

“My form with Denmark hasn’t been too bad, I got off to a very slow start with five goals in my first 50 games.

“It took me a while but I’m finally here. It’s almost going too well but I hope it carries on.”

Tottenham fans will be hoping that these two goals for Denmark will drive Eriksen on to play a pivotal role in the game against Liverpool on September 15.

A recreation of his brace against Wales could see Tottenham lay down a real marker for the season ahead.
