Tottenham Hotspur supporters have been celebrating after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg scored for Denmark against Austria on Wednesday evening.
The Spurs midfielder isn’t one who usually gets on the scoresheet but managed to do so as the Danes breezed past the Austrians in their World Cup qualifier.
Andreas Skov Olsen scored twice for the visitors in Austria, with Joakim Maehle and Hojbjerg also getting on the scoresheet to put their side top of Group F.
The Spurs star is more known for his industrious off-the-ball work than his play in possession but proved what he can do in both areas on Wednesday.
After a howler from Alexander Schlager in the Austria goal, Hojbjerg produced a measured strike from 18 yards to put Denmark 3-0 up on the night.
Spurs fans have been reacting to their midfielder scoring a rare goal whilst on international duty.
Hojbjerg signed from Southampton last summer and has been an ever-present figure in Jose Mourinho’s side.
He has been praised by numerous pundits for adding some much-needed steel into Tottenham’s midfield, but has only scored one goal for his new club so far.
That came in the 3-1 defeat to Liverpool back in January, but it was a superb strike.

Hojbjerg is likely to feature for Spurs in their trip to Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon.
Mourinho will be looking to guide his side to a second successive win after they picked up a much-needed three points against Aston Villa before the international break.
A win for Spurs could lift them as high as fourth, depending on how Chelsea and West Ham United fare this weekend.
