Eriksen hits hatrick to sink Ireland

Denmark Soccer WCup 2018

Denmark booked their spot at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation after recording a 5-1 win over the Republic of Ireland in their second leg play-off tie. It is the fifth time that the Danes have qualified for world football's showpiece event.

A 0-0 draw in the opening leg in Copenhagen meant the tie was there for the taking for either side, and the hosts made the ideal start as Shane Duffy headed them ahead inside six minutes.

Despite falling behind early, the Scandinavians responded with five unanswered goals to secure their place at Russian Federation 2018, with Christian Eriksen leading the way with a hat-trick in Dublin.

Following a corner, Pione Sisto drove into the box and put a hopeful ball into the mass of bodies in front, where Andreas Christensen scuffed a shot off the post, but it went in after striking defender Cyrus Christie.

Eriksen scored two more goals, showing his complete superiority on the pitch, suggesting that Ireland's lack of a World Class player in this encounter left them out of the World Cup.

Martin O'Neill's side had only managed to score three goals once in this campaign, away at Moldova, and the task was beyond them in the 63rd minute as Eriksen curled another beauty past Darren Randolph before drilling home his third from close range to start the party among Denmark's traveling support.

The icing on the Danish pastry came right on the blow of full time, a penalty from substitute Niklas Bendtner to turn dream into nightmare for Ireland.

Elsewhere in World Cup qualifying, two dead rubbers were played out in Africa's Group D, with Burkina Faso beating Cape Verde 4-0 and Senegal sealing a 2-1 win over South Africa.

He proved the difference between the two sides as he netted twice more after the break to secure Denmark's spot in next year's Russian Federation tournament.
