Christian Eriksen – Denmark

Nicklas Bendtner was a two-goal hero in the Danes’ match with Italy on Friday, but their hopes of a playoff spot behind the already qualified Azzuri were crushed by an injury time Alberto Aquilani goal.

It leaves Eriksen and his teammates in a precarious position where they must defeat Malta and hope Bulgaria do not beat Czech Republic if they are to grab second spot in the group. It would be a shame not to see Eriksen at the finals, as he is settling in nicely at Tottenham and it looks possible he could blossom into one of Europe’s leading playmakers.
