NETHERLANDS 4-2 DENMARK; STEVEN BERGWIJN BRACE GIVES NETHERLANDS A WIN, AS CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN SCORES A COME BACK GOAL FOR DENMARK.
International Friendly, Johan Cruijff Arena – Netherlands 4 (Bergwijn 15’, 70’, Ake 28’, Depay P 37’) Denmark 2 (Vestergaard 19’, Eriksen 47’).
Christian Eriksen sealed a fairytale return to international football with a goal, but it was not enough to prevent Denmark from slumping to a 4-2 friendly defeat to the Netherlands.
The midfielder, playing his first international since suffering a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020, scored with his first touch after coming on as a half-time substitute on an emotional night in Amsterdam.
An entertaining game saw the Netherlands take the lead after just 16 minutes when Steven Bergwijn brilliantly headed Daley Blind’s left-wing cross into the top corner, but the Danes equalised with their next attack as Jannik Vestergaard flicked home from Joakim Maehle’s delivery.
