For the first time this season Christian Eriksen will be in the first team squad on Sunday when Ajax visit NEC. After a productive pre-season, the Danish playmaker has fully rested from the Euros this summer.
Eriksen played for Denmark during the middle of last week and stated to AjaxTV, “I’ve played for Denmark in midweek and feel fit to start on Sunday.”
Ajax boss Frank de Boer will have to decide if he starts Eriksen in his first competitive game of the season. De Boer told his star player to focus on getting ready for this game.
With the departure of Vurnon Anita to Newcastle you will see a change in midfield. Eriksen says it will be a case of adapting and getting use to the change, “Anita always give you confidence and you knew with him playing the defensive role, we could play our own game.”
