Christian Eriksen has continued his fine week for club and country by a wonderful first-half display in Denmark’s game against Gibraltar.

The Tottenham midfielder, who opened the scoring in the North London derby on Sunday, is making his 90th cap for his country this evening in their Euro 2020 qualifier against the minnows.

And the Dane’s, who are currently unbeaten in their qualifying campaign having collected five points from their opening three matches, are on their way to keeping their place in the all-important top-two positions – largely thanks to the Spurs man.

Inside ten minutes, Eriksen’s picked out Hoffenheim striker Robert Skov to head home the opener – with the kind of delivery we have seen him find Dele Alli with on a number of times over the years – to make it 1-0 to Denmark.

Less than half-hour later, Eriksen was back in the goals as he thumped home his first and Denmark’s second of the evening against the part-timers. It was his 22nd goal in his previous 30 internationals, a truly remarkable record for a midfielder.
