Christian Eriksen has said the number of Tottenham stars who reached the latter stages of the World Cup proves the club is a good place to be for top players.

Denmark crashed out against Croatia in the Round of 16 at the tournament, but nine Spurs players featured in the semi-finals, mostly for Belgium and England, while Hugo Lloris captained France to the trophy.

Eriksen has been one of Tottenham’s most consistent performers over the last two seasons, and his displays have seen him linked with a potential move to either Barcelona or Real Madrid.

However, the Dane has suggested that Spurs’ World Cup heroes are proof the club is an ideal location for top players.

“If you look at the number of players we had at the World Cup and showing who they are as players, it’s been a very successful thing,” Eriksen said during Tottenham’s pre-season tour of the US (via ESPN).

“We had nine players in the semis, which means of course that our team out here is different to what it would usually be. But the World Cup is definitely a good place to show that when you’re at Tottenham you can be a top player.”

With under two weeks until the Premier League transfer window closes, it’s extremely unlikely Eriksen will depart this summer.

Spurs fans will now be hoping the 26-year-old follows the lead of Mauricio Pochettino, Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son by signing a new long-term contract with the club.



  1. We all love you Christian; you must be the most popular player amongst Spurs fans: please sign a new long term contract.

  2. Yep, you can be a great player in a great team as long as you don’t mind being paid what is essentially peanuts to what you could get elsewhere – long-term Spurs supporter who can’t believe how little vision Levy really has.

  3. Christian Eriksen voices what many other people will have observed about Spurs players and the role they played for a number of countries at the World Cup. But it wasn’t only players in the late stages of the tournament who were impressive but those like Son, Eriksen himself and Sanchez who played so well for South Korea, Denmark and Colombia respectively. It was fascinating to watch our players feature in each national context and contribute as they did.
