Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen scored a hat-trick as Denmark came from behind to end the Republic of Ireland’s World Cup dream with an emphatic 5-1 play-off win in Dublin. Shane Duffy had headed Martin O’Neill’s side into a sixth-minute lead at a sell-out Aviva Stadium but two goals in four first-half minutes prompted a decisive shift. Eriksen struck just moments after Cyrus Christie’s own goal and then snuffed out home hopes with a fine second-half double, before Nicklas Bendtner’s 90th-minute penalty completed the rout.
