Christian Eriksen gave a withering assessment of Ireland following Monday night's draw

Sticking the boot in...

Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen offered an unflattering analysis of Ireland following Monday night's clash, claiming Ireland were "too scared" to attack during the game.

Ireland failed to score for the fourth game running in all competitions and ended their UEFA Nations League campaign with a draw with Denmark in Copenhagen.

The draw means Ireland finished bottom of their group with just two points.

But while a draw may not seem like the worst result away from home, Ireland failed to create any meaningful chances and instead defended for long periods of the game, and frustrated the Danish players, in particular, Tottenham's Christian Eriksen.

"It was a lot of defending on their side and we were trying to attack against 11 players in their own half," Eriksen said after the game.

"They played like this in every game we've played. In the second game in Ireland they wanted to go forward but they knew what happened when they went forward so that's why they were too scared to go forward. That's something we've learned, that teams are scared to come here."

Jeez Christian, tell us home you really feel...
