Republic of Ireland tactics 'clueless' against Denmark, says Keith Andrews

Republic of Ireland tactics 'clueless' against Denmark, says Keith Andrews

The Danes also benefitted from an Andreas Christensen goal, that cancelled out Shane Duffy's early header for Ireland, and a late Nicklas Bendtner penalty but Eriksen stole the show.

Ireland were well beaten at home to Denmark on Tuesday night, going down 5-1 to leave their World Cup hopes lying in tatters.

Eriksen scored two more goals, showing his complete superiority on the pitch, suggesting that Ireland's lack of a World Class player in this encounter left them out of the World Cup.

"It was very good, especially when we went 1-0 behind, we didn't get stressed", Hareide told Sky Sports.

"I don't agree with our luck running out, it was a commendable effort by the team". We are very much looking forward to it.

O'Neill made two hurried substitutions at half time which completely tore apart his midfield, and instead of generating some pressure on Kasper Schmeichel's goal, it allowed Eriksen and Denmark more and more freedom.

The second goal was the most technical one, better than the others.

"When you give him the ball, something happens, that's the difference between the sides - when you've got a world-class player".

After Denmark got their first through a Cyrus Christie own goal, there was no stopping them as they cruised to victory at the Aviva Stadium.

"We tried to play, and we got the openings, and we got the goals".

"I'm obviously delighted for Denmark but I'm gutted for the Irish".

The Canaries legend was an unused substitute on Saturday night as Martin O'Neill's team held the Danes to a 0-0 draw in Copenhagen in the first leg.

"I'm very pleased for the team, this is a hard place to play football - they're compact and good defensively, so scoring five against Ireland does not happen very often".

If we did need firing up for the game, however, then RTÉ Sport, as they often do in these situations, have provided the flawless tonic with an inspirational promo starring none other than Brendan Gleeson for the big game.
