Christian Eriksen and his Denmark teammates have made themselves available for Sunday’s match against Wales despite an ongoing dispute with the Danish FA over commercial rights, according to the Mirror.
Earlier this week, the likes of Eriksen, Kapar Schmeichel and Andreas Christensen were all released from international duty, leading to a number of the country’s futsal players and amateur footballers to be selected in a 3-0 defeat to Slovakia on Wednesday.
It was believed Denmark’s senior players would also miss the upcoming Wales clash, but that is no longer the case.
According to the Mirror, a deal to solve the ongoing dispute between the players and the FA hasn’t been reached, but a compromise has. That means those players are now available to face Wales on Sunday.
Danish FA chairman Jesper Moller said (via the Mirror): “It is good for the national team and for everyone in Danish football that we can play the important Nations League match with the real national team and once again focus on the sporting aspect.”
Although Spurs fans will have probably been pleased to see Eriksen given a rest, it’s always good to see players prosper for their country as well as their club.
Hopefully the dispute doesn’t go on much longer to ensure Eriksen isn’t distracted ahead of a crucial run of fixtures for Tottenham.
