Holland coach Van Gaal: Brentford midfielder Eriksen a wonderful player

Holland coach Louis van Gaal paid tribute to Brentford midfielder Christian Eriksen after his return with Denmark last night.

Eriksen scored in a game which marked his first international since suffering a cardiac arrest at last summer's Euros.

After Holland's friendly win, LVG said: "He has already played in Brentford, I mean.

"So I was not surprised that he came on the field. I was more surprised that he did not start inside the first half.

"He is a wonderful player that we know very well. He has played here and it was wild when he was replaced."
