Hat-trick hero Eriksen books Denmark's World Cup spot

The midfield maestro, who had missed a couple of decent chances in the goalless playoff first leg, made no mistake in the Dublin return as his treble put the Irish to the sword.

It's only qualification for what would be our first World Cup in 16 years that's at stake after all.

More poor play from Ward then set up Eriksen who blasted home his third goal of the game. "After scoring one goal it was a big knock for Ireland and it gave us the confidence to keep going".

O'Neill said of his contract situation: "I haven't spoken to John since we talked about it, so I'll speak to John, I'm sure".

"We were well beaten tonight by a side that was technically better than us and have a word-class player playing in their team, but I don't agree with you about luck running out. They deserved to go through after beating us convincingly".

O'Neill said: "The group have shown great determination, a great old spirit, this is the play-offs, this isn't the first match of a tournament, we've got to the play-off here in this competition". We needed either of those to go in to get a real foothold in the game.

"We can not ignore that Eriksen delivered an incredible performance and probably played his best worldwide game, in my opinion", Bendtner told reporters.

"It is not often I score any hat-trick so of course it is incredible".

"It's hard to rank, but we saw (in Tottenham's Champions League victory) against Real Madrid he is probably one of the best players in his position in Europe at the moment". I know how nervous I was all day and night.

Eriksen bagged his second of the game on 63 minutes, again producing a superb finish after good work from the effervescent Pione Sisto. "I am thinking more like a striker".
