Christian Eriksen: France star Hugo Lloris issues World Cup warning ahead of Denmark clash | Football | Sport



France have sealed a place in the last 16 but a point against the Danes would be enough to guarantee top spot.

Didier Deschamps is set to rest several of France’s big players for the Group C clash but one man his team will have to keep tabs on Eriksen.

The 26-year-old had an impressive season for Spurs with 10 goals and 10 assists.

And he has taken that form in the World Cup with one goal and one assist in Denmark’s first two games.

Lloris knows all about the threat Eriksen poses and speaking ahead of the tournament, the goalkeeper hailed the Danish playmaker.

He told Tottenham’s official website: “Denmark with Christian, he’s got the key role for his nation and he’s got a lot of responsibility on his shoulders.

“I think he’s just an amazing player and obviously he would like to shine during this World Cup.

“It’s going to be a difficult game too, maybe a decisive game because the third game in the group stage is always decisive.

“We can not be only focused on Christian but as I said he’s got the key role in his team so we need to look after him.”

Denmark vs France kicks off at 3pm on BBC One.
