Denmark wants Eriksen's role to dream of the quarterfinals

Even though he added a goal and an assist in three games, Christian Eriksen was still not what was expected at this World Cup. The Tottenham midfielder is considered Denmark's big name, but can deliver more football on the Russian pitches. In an interview with the "FIFA" website, coach Age Hareide talked about the formula to make the star play. Christian is always available when we have the ball, we can pass it to him, and we need to try to put him in play more often, when possible. This demands more precision from the other players to get the ball to Christian, is to pass the right ball. We talked about it a lot, said the coach. Defensive midfielder Thomas Delaney believes that the Danish team still needs to reach their best football in the Cup so that Eriksen also starts to shine. If you put Eriksen in Barcelona he will also shine. For that to happen, he needs our game to be in a certain way and, against France, we had already decided on a game mode that would not allow him to have many spaces to show his quality - he analyzed. Denmark faces Croatia in the round of 16 final and tries to repeat the best campaign in history, when it reached the quarterfinals. The team has to do what it is doing. There is no difference. Obviously, sometimes you should have taken a risk, sometimes you shouldn't, and that works for me too. But I think we ended up in a good situation - commented Eriksen.
