Denmark coach Olsen won't gamble with fitness of Tottenham's Eriksen

Denmark coach Morten Olsen won't gamble with the fitness of Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen tonight.

The Danes will face England at Wembley.

"If Eriksen could play we will use him, but he would have to be 100 per cent," Olsen said. "When he is only 99 per cent he will not play.

"He's a young player who has never had such an injury before, so it's a difficult one to call.

"We have to wait and see, I think it's always a game against time, probably he can play on Saturday for Tottenham.

"I don't think he can play tomorrow, we'll wait and see, but I can only say to Tottenham that I will not risk him."
