The Danes booked their ticket to Russian Federation with a brilliant 5-1 win in Dublin, Eriksen's treble sandwiched by a Cyrus Christie own goal and Nicklas Bendtner penalty after Shane Duffy had put the hosts into an early lead.

But Denmark stormed back and tore Ireland apart.

If Denmark's first goal, an own goal by Cyrus Christie, was a bit disheartening for the Irish, Eriksen's wonder goal in the 32nd minute completely broke them.

The Canaries legend was an unused substitute on Saturday night as Martin O'Neill's team held the Danes to a 0-0 draw in Copenhagen in the first leg. It's a big thing and I'm very, very happy about it.
