Ghana's No. 1

Christian Eriksen sets Nations League record as Manchester United midfielder shines for Denmark

Published on: 26 September 2022

Christian Eriksen has made an encouraging start to life at Manchester United.

The midfielder arrived in the summer after a hugely successful spell with fellow Premier League outfit Brentford in the second half of last season.

That stint in London saw Eriksen rediscover his best form following a cardiac arrest whilst playing for Denmark at the delayed European Championship last year. He's started every Premier League game since arriving at Old Trafford and has already chipped in with one assist but will be hungry for more once Erik ten Hag's side resume league commitments this weekend.

Eriksen has also been busy during international week. He scored in Denmark's 2-1 Nations League defeat to Croatia last week and then played the full 90 minutes in the impressive 2-0 win over world champions France.

And during that latter game, the 30-year-old actually set a new record for this season's Nations League.

Eriksen created a whopping eight chances against the French, a figure that no other player from the other 54 nations involved in the competition has managed to better.

Whilst he may not have directly contributed to either of the two goals, Eriksen's importance to his country is evident as they prepare for the World Cup later this year. The Danes are in Group D alongside France, Australia and Tunisia.
