Rasmus Hojlund and Christian Eriksen will not be part of the Danish national team, in the upcoming matches valid for the qualifiers of the European Championship. The reason for both players is injury. In United's 1-0 win over Luton Town, midfielder Eriksen was forced off the pitch after 40 minutes, while Hojlund also came off in the 79th minute.
The injuries do not seem to be serious for the players, but the coach of Manchester United, Erik ten Hag, has said that he is waiting for the results of the medical examinations to come to a more accurate conclusion. The Dutch said:
"At this moment, I can't say anything about Rasmus because I don't know him. We are doing an assessment and then we have to wait 24 hours to come to conclusions and see if there is a problem or not. Christian meanwhile slipped on the field, and it's the same situation for him."
Denmark are second in Group H of the Euro 2024 qualifiers, on the same points as leaders Slovenia. The Danes face Slovenia on November 17 at home, and then travel to Northern Ireland to face the Irish on November 20. The absences of Hojlund and Eriksen are undoubtedly important for the national team, but still, Denmark still have a pretty high chance of qualifying for Euro 2024.
Ten Hag meanwhile have more problems to sort out as 2 players join United's long injury list. Currently at the "Red Devils" Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia, Casemiro, Jonny Evans and Amad Diallo are also unavailable. The national team matches will give Ten Hag some much needed time to think better about his game module considering the many absences.
