Poland found themselves on the receiving end of a Christian Eriksen masterclass on Friday night.

Denmark cruised to a 4-0 win in their World Cup Group E qualifier, thanks in large part to the Tottenham playmaker.

The 25-year-old set up goals for Thomas Delaney, Andreas Cornelius, and Nicolai Jorgensen before adding to his side's advantage with a superb strike with ten minutes of normal time to go.

It's been a decent start to the new season for the Dane, who was quite brilliant in Spurs' trip to Newcastle during the opening weekend, a game in which Mauricio Pochettino's men came away with a 2-0 victory.

Against Chelsea, he provided the cross which Michy Batshuayi headed into his own net and ought to have earned the Lilywhites a point had they not let in Marcos Alonso's late goal.

For now, though, Eriksen has the small matter of helping his country to next summer's World Cup in Russia.

So, without further ado, check out his beautiful goal from last night. What a hit:

Not much Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski was able to do about that.

This could well be a big season for the Spurs midfielder, especially as the north Londoners were ultimately unable to bring in another attacking midfielder this summer.

Davinson Sanchez, Paulo Gazzaniga, Juan Foyth, Serge Aurier, and Fernando Llorente all came through the doors, but Pochettino found himself frustrated in his pursuit of Ross Barkley, who'll be staying at Everton at least until January.

Another big season for Eriksen 

That means the club will be even more reliant on Eriksen, who recently summed up how he keeps their midfield ticking over perfectly.

"I don't like it hectic, I like to keep it calm and do my thing - play the pass," he told Sky Sports.

"I think you see the pass if you are in a good state of mind. Just do it like your intuition tells you and hopefully it pays off."

The former Ajax man will be in action again on Monday when Denmark play Armenia, the side second-from-bottom in their group.

Is Eriksen one of the Premier League's most underrated players? Have your say in the comments.
