The potential club v country row concerning Christian Eriksen was diffused last night as the Spurs midfielder sat out England’s game with Denmark and watched instead from the stands. The player had missed Tottenham’s game with Cardiff at the weekend but there was some dispute as to whether he would feature in Wednesday night’s friendly.
Eriksen’s absence lead to Tim Sherwood declaring that the player would drop out of the Danish squad but their coach Morten Olsen had other ideas.
“We take no chances. He should be 100% ready. We think there is enough time,” Olsen said prior to the game.
A potential issue came to nothing but Christian was disappointed to miss out on a Wembley appearance.
“I’ve never played at Wembley. And of course it would be special to play there,” he said.
“For a lot of the lads it is the same. It is a big stadium with a huge history.
“Everyone talks about the big pitch and the atmosphere – it’s the place to be.”
There are no updates on his condition but given the form he displayed against Dnipro last week, it will be a big miss if Christian Eriksen continues to sit in the stands during a crucial month.
