Sampdoria winger Damsgaard: Eriksen an inspiration for me

Sampdoria winger Mikkel Damsgaard admits he draws inspiration from Denmark teammate Christian Eriksen.

Damsgaard has been outstanding for Denmark at the Euros after stepping in for Eriksen following the Inter Milan midfielder's cardiac arrest suffered in the first game against Finland.

He said, "Christian Eriksen is the best I have ever played with, he is an inspiration. I have seen him play a lot, I have paid attention to how he looks for spaces and I have tried to incorporate his things.

"They are different positions. I am more of a wing player, he is more of a midfielder.

"I try to play my own style and look for gaps in defence, connect midfield with forwards. I don't think too much about comparisons."
