Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have been taking to social media to share their reaction to Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s impressive assist last night.
The 26-year-old was named in Denmark’s starting eleven for their 2-0 World Cup qualifying win against Scotland in Copenhagen.
On fourteen minutes, the Spurs midfielder picked up the ball on the left-hand side of the pitch in Scotland’s half and whipped in a cross to the back post which saw right-back Daniel Wass take advantage of poor positional play and defensive awareness Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney’s to head his side into the lead.
Hojbjerg also impressed during the Dane’s Euro 2020 campaign which saw him named as part of the team of the tournament, which was selected by UEFA’s team of Technical Observers – a panel which included former Tottenham players Robbie Keane and Steffen Freund.
The former Southampton man has continued his form at club level this season, forming an impressive midfield partnership with Oliver Skipp.
Check out the below reaction some of what the North London faithful had to say:
Need more assists from him for spurs as well

The bloke has now consistently shown he’s able to provide big chances for club and country. You can’t ignore it, it’s there for all to see.
Freund comparisons are wide of the mark, lots more to his game.

Pretty amazing how Hojbjerg, Mourinho's favorite player, has reached another level after he's left
