Eriksen grabs great Dane win

A late goal from Christian Eriksen saw Denmark come from behind to snatch a 2-1 win over Georgia in a friendly at Aalborg Stadion.

After a goalless first half, the visitors seized the initiative seven minutes after the interval when a swift counter-attack ended with Irakli Dzaria poking home.

However, Nicklas Pedersen restored parity after 77 minutes, making the most of an error from Georgia goalkeeper George Loria to fire into an empty net.

And Eriksen turned the result on its head in superb fashion a minute from time with a 20-yard free-kick which he lashed into the top corner.

The win is ideal preparation for Denmark ahead of their World Cup Group B qualifier at home to Armenia on Tuesday.
