Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg got one over on his Tottenham teammate and captain this week as Denmark defeated Hugo Lloris’s France in the Nation’s League. 

Denmark came from behind to defeat theWorld Cup champions 2-1 away from home, with Hojbjerg playing an important role in Andreas Cornelius’ equaliser.

The Spurs midfielder picked the ball up in the final third before clipping a delightful through ball for his teammate to tap home on the volley. Cornelius then made it 2-1 minutes after Hugo Lloris denied Christian Eriksen a winner from point blanc range.

Check out Hojbjerg’s assist below:

Spurs Web Opinion:

Hojbjerg remains incredibly underrated by fans, including Tottenham’s own. His ability on the ball really shines through in the Denmark system and hopefully we will see more of that next season under Conte if he plays in a two or a three.
