Christian Eriksen: I Am On The Same Level With Real Madrid's Luka Modric

Tottenham midfielder, Christian Eriksen has claimed that he is on the same level with Real Madrid star Luka Modric.

Eriksen made this known ahead of Sunday's clash in the World Cup round of 16 against Denmark.

Croatia finished top of Group D with nine points ahead of Argentina, Nigeria and Iceland.

While, Denmark finished 2nd behind France in Group C.

Speaking ahead of the match, Eriksen has claimed he is on the same level with the Croatia international.

The Denmark star played for Tottenham in the Champions League last season against Real Madrid in the same group.

But the La Liga club won the trophy after beating Liverpool 3-1 in the final in Kiev.

Eriksen said: “I do not consider myself to be worse than him.

“Modric has won an incredible number of accolades.

“Of course, the team in Real Madrid has helped him, but he has played to a very high standard.

“He is the type of player you enjoy to challenge yourself against. For the national team is more attacking that he is for Madrid.”

Eriksen is one of the best players in the Denmark national team and so far he has scored one goal and one assist in three appearances in the World Cup in Russia and he aims to improve on the statistic when he faces Croatia.

“I’ve made a goal and an assist and helped the team reach the next round– which is what it is all about.

“I did not score against France so there is pressure to score in the next match.

“I am in a situation where there is huge pressure on me, which I am now used to.

“I had chances against France, which I failed to take, hopefully, I will do better against Croatia,” Eriksen added Croatia will play Denmark on Sunday for the quarterfinal spot1.
