Eriksen hits hatrick to sink Ireland

Eriksen hits hatrick to sink Ireland

Republic boss Martin O'Neill shrugged off questions about his tactics, admitting Denmark were the better team on the night, but Andrews raised questions about the space afforded to Eriksen and his team-mates, considering the compact nature of O'Neill's side in Copenhagen on Saturday when they earned a goalless draw.

"I'm very pleased for the team, this is a hard place to play football - they're compact and good defensively, so scoring five against Ireland does not happen very often. After scoring one goal it was a big knock for Ireland and it gave us the confidence to keep going".

"We were well beaten in the end".

"I'm naturally disappointed because a couple of nights ago in Copenhagen we had fought very, very strongly", O'Neill, who cut short an interview with national broadcaster RTE, told a news conference.

The 21-year-old is set to deputise for Joe Hart and Jordan Pickford but manager Gareth Southgate has suggested the called-up youngsters could get a chance to make their debuts.

He said: "We've lost the game, once we've lost the game, I'll have to go have a look at it. That didn't happen and Denmark were clinical".

The playmaker was the youngest player at the 2010 World Cup, where Denmark exited at the group stage, but more performances like this could see the Danes spring a surprise in Russian Federation.

"We can not ignore that Eriksen delivered an incredible performance and probably played his best global game, in my opinion", Bendtner told reporters. The Tottenham forward was given too much time on the edge of the area and fired the ball home - with Ciaran Clark and Duffy unable to reach him.

Sub Shane Long threatened to get one back for the Boys in Green but there was still time for none other than Nicolas Bendtner to rub salt into the gaping Irish wound, converting a spot-kick after the ex-Arsenal man had been felled in the box by McClean.

"It is not often I score any hat-trick so of course it is incredible".

Eriksen, who has scored 21 times in 75 internationals, said there were more goals to come from Denmark in Russian Federation. I know how nervous I was all day and night.
