Eriksen was already running the show in Stuttgart when, in the 17th minute, he popped up inside the opposition penalty area and finished off a lovely move to make it 1-0. 

The Danes’ no.10 chested down Jonas Wind’s beautiful flicked pass and then fired the ball right-footed into the bottom left-hand corner. It was Eriksen’s 42nd goal for his country and surely up there as one of the finest and most important among that impressive international tally.

In a dominant first-half performance, Christian went close to creating a second strike on several occasions. He nearly forced an own goal when his half-volleyed cross from the right ricocheted off two Slovenia defenders before spinning to safety beyond the far post.
