Tottenham Hotspur: Many fans are frustrated after Christian Eriksen’s assist for Denmark

It looked as though Denmark were heading to a draw against Switzerland in their Euro 2020 qualifier, until Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen made an intervention.

In the 84th-minute, the 27-year-old played a sublime reverse pass for Yussuf Poulsen, who strode forward with the ball and placed it past Yann Sommer, as shown in the highlights video on the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel.

This result was vital for Denmark, as it puts them in second place in their group, four points ahead of Switzerland, who have a game in hand.

Spurs sent out an update on Eriksen’s performance on their official Twitter account:

However, many fans weren’t congratulatory, as they saw this as more of a source of frustration than anything else.

Many of them have grown increasingly tired of the Denmark international, wanting him out of the club as soon as January comes around.

Seeing him make a difference for his country has only added to this feeling, especially following events such as his penalty miss in the Carabao Cup loss against Colchester United.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the assist, including posts from frustrated Spurs fans, can be seen below:
