Star man Christian Eriksen is back in the fold with Denmark for their Nations League clash with Ireland later this month.

The Tottenham man missed their game in Dublin last month with a stomach complaint but he's now fully fit and rejoins the Danish squad for a Nations League double header against Wales and Ireland.

"He was excellent against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League, he was the Christian we know well. I think that Tottenham have taken care of him well and been careful with him, it's good for the national team to have him back," said coach Age Hareide.

Hareide has leaned heavily on the English leagues for his squad - 10 of the 21-man squad based in England.
