    Eriksen scored a 25-yard screamer for Denmark in their clash with Croatia.

    The Croatia defenders clearly have not been watching any of his games for Manchester United this season as they left him with acres of space.

    He then picked his spot and whipped a devilish shot into the top corner past the diving goalkeeper.

    It was all in a losing cause, though, as Denmark went on to lose the game 2-1.

    Borna Sosa had given the hosts the lead in the 49th minutes before Eriksen’s worldie in the 77th minute.

    Then just two minutes later, Croatia restored their lead through Lovro Majer.

    Manchester United fans will be delighted to see Eriksen performing so well for his country, continuing the form he has shown in a Red Devils shirt.

    Even though he only has two assists this season, he has been pulling the strings for Erik ten Hag’s side in their four straight Premier League victories.

    The 30-year-old has proved to be an absolute steal of a free agent signing.

    All football fans will be delighted to see Eriksen back at is best following his cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 last year.
