Ajax whooped Group D stragglers Dinamo Zagreb 4-0 in Amsterdam last night, with Danish tyro Christian Eriksen providing the lion’s share of the craft and invention – including this borderline pornographic backheel assist for Gregory van der Wiel’s opener…

Bergkamp rates him highly and it’s not hard to see why.

    I’ve seen him play. The kid’s not bad, but he’s definitely not the next Sneijder. The right-back, who scored the goal, is a top-class player though. Arsenal should’ve bought him and Stekelenburg this summer.

    Christian Eriksen is the Danish national teams’ midfield maestro, and it certainly looks like he’s heading towards a great career. @kct, why rate him next to Sneijder? They barely have the same style of play, let alone nationality. Try comparing him to a Laudrup, that’ll get the wheels turning, and hopefully we’ll see him become the next big thing hailing from Denmark. (Bendter never really became that.)

    Er… Does that count as a backheel AND a rabona?
