Hat-trick hero Eriksen books Denmark's World Cup spot

PA-1018425

After missing out on it last time, Denmark will be in the World Cup after thrashing Ireland in Dublin, led by the sublime Christian Eriksen with a hat trick, and even Lord Nicklas Bendtner made himself useful with a 90th minute penalty.

Denmark then silenced the home fans three minutes later when Christian Eriksen clinically turned home Jorgensen's cross to put the visitors ahead.

However, Denmark bagged a third goal in the 63rd minute as Eriksen registered his second on the night with a fine effort from 20 yards.

If Denmark's first goal, an own goal by Cyrus Christie, was a bit disheartening for the Irish, Eriksen's wonder goal in the 32nd minute completely broke them.

Martin O'Neill bemoaned the Republic of Ireland's missed opportunities in the first half but admitted that Denmark deserved their victory as they won 5-1 in Dublin on Tuesday. We saw it against Real Madrid, he's probably one of the best players in his position in Europe at the moment.

The former Republic of Ireland global was highly critical of manager Martin O'Neill who selected a diamond formation against Denmark, a change from his defensive five-man midfield which played in Copenhagen on Saturday. "We obviously got off to a great start and perhaps James second goal (had he scored) might have made a big difference in the game", he said.

At the end of the six months, customers would be allowed to keep one of the games they had rented during that timespan. Either way, the PowerPass program is now suspended and there's no word whether or not the program will be reinstated.

"I thought the first-half was silly how we set up, but what we did [with the subs] at half-time we were trying to work out who was going to play where".

"We can not ignore that Eriksen delivered an incredible performance and probably played his best global game, in my opinion", Bendtner told reporters.

"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.

"There is two-on-one for a corner and Harry gets beaten but we should still be able to clear the ball and we haven't done that and the next goal is a comedy of mistakes". 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.

Eriksen, who has scored 21 times in 75 internationals, said there were more goals to come from Denmark in Russian Federation. In the end we have lost a playoff game to take us to a World Cup. I take the more clinical shot rather than passing.
