Eriksen said of their young striker: "He calls me Dad because every time I enter a room, they say 'where is your son!'.

"He has a great sense of humour, he's one person on the pitch and one person off it. He does his job perfectly so I can't say anything bad about him."

Eriksen is back at the Euros after surviving a cardiac arrest four years ago at the last tournament.

He added, "It's been a goal of mine since the beginning to come back to this level, a lot of things have happened so honestly, I don't think about it on a daily basis."
