Christian Eriksen, Ajax (PROSHOTS)
Christian Eriksen - He made his international debut in the friendly away to Austria a few weeks after his eighteenth birthday. Most commentators commended the 34 minutes he played after coming on as a substitute for Daniel Jensen.

Even though he is still young most people believe that he will be Morten Olsen's surprise inclusion in the 23-man squad for the WC finals.

He can run deep and shoots well with both legs - even from a long distance - and is generally a really dangerous player and is considered to be one of the biggest talents Danish football have produced in years.

He joined Ajax and their famous youth academy in October 2008 from OB Odense before even having played a first team match. He worked his way through the youth teams and made his first team debut for the Dutch team in the Eresdivisie on 17 January 2010 and is slowly establishing himself as an attacking midfielder in the first team.
