Christian scored a manager Martin O’Neill, hat trick and Denmark trounced Ireland 5 – 1 to book their place at the World Cup next year. Irish manager Martin O’Neill stormed out of the post match press conference after having said…
“We were well beaten, no question about that.We were made to pay for some sloppy defending, two really poor goals to concede and when we tried to chase the game, we were punished.But we were beaten in a play-off. We have fought tooth and nail to get here, so the sense of disappointment is huge. But we have played 24 competitive games and lost four. This is one of them.We were beaten by a side that was better than us and has a world-class player in the team, who was absolutely magnificent. Eriksen is top class and he showed it.”
Denmark and Eriksen however are home and dry and looking good.
