France coach Deschamps amazed by Eriksen: For Man Utd and Denmark

France coach Didier Deschamps hailed Manchester United midfielder Christian Eriksen after defeat to Denmark on Sunday.

The Danes won 2-0, with Deschamps impressed by Eriksen's performance.

"There is an attacking player who even surprised me, and not just because of what had happened that could have been dramatic for him, and obviously it's Christian Eriksen," said Deschamps.

"But the ability that he shows with his club in the position he plays, because he has always been someone who has a remarkable technical ability.

"But to play so frequently for his club in the midfield, to see the volume of games he plays, this ability even to recover is impressive. And he has always had the ability to score goals, to make other players score - he has always had that."
