Tottenham Hotspur and Denmark star Christian Eriksen has said that he wants to replicate his Denmark scoring prowess for Tottenham Hotspur. Eriksen scored a brace as Denmark defeated Wales 2-0 at Aarhus on Sunday. The win was a very important one for Denmark as they entered into the match with low expectations. This was because of the dispute between the DBU and the players’ union. Eriksen now has 15 goals in his last 18 international matches.
The 26-year old has provided an assist but is yet to score for Tottenham this season. Speaking ahead of Tottenham’s clash against Liverpool, Eriksen said, “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.”
Christian Eriksen added, “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 play Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday. This will be a tough match for Spurs as Liverpool are yet to lose a Premier League game. Nevertheless, the match promises to be an exciting and nail-biting one.
