Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen set to break international record in USA friendly

Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen is set to become the youngest-ever player to make 50 international appearances for Denmark’s national team when they face the USA at the end of the month.

Eriksen is one of many Danish stars to be called up for the upcoming friendlies against the USA and France next week, and he will be making his 50th international appearance for Denmark if he features in either of those games.

At just 23, Eriksen will beat the current record held by Michael Laudrup, who made his 50th cap at the age of 24 in 1988.

The Spurs star is one of the brightest talents in world football and is undoubtedly one of the best attacking players in the Premier League.

Jurgen Klinsmann and his US Men’s National Team face a tough trip to Denmark next Wednesday in what will be just their fifth game against the European side.

The USA have never beaten Denmark, having drawn two and lost two of the previous four meetings, and lost the most recent meeting 3-1 in 2009 at NRGi Park – the same venue they will play at next week.

Beating Denmark will be a real ask, especially as head coach Morten Olsen has named a strong squad for the friendlies.

Recognisable Danish stars such as Kasper Schmeichel, Daniel Agger, Jores Okore, Lasse Schone, Marin Braithwaite and Nicklas Bendtner join Eriksen in the squad and will prove to be stiff competition against a USMNT team that has only won one in their last six.

Will Christian Eriksen make his 50th cap against the USMNT next week? Can the USA beat Denmark?
