Rasmus Hojlund and Christian Eriksen, who play for Manchester United, have been removed from the Denmark team before the country’s forthcoming pair of Euro 2024 qualifying matches.

Hojlund exited Saturday’s game against Luton Town with a hamstring injury after the contest, and Eriksen left the game with a knee injury in the first half. The match ended in a 1-0 victory for Tottenham. Due to their extensive injury list, United were already without eight players for the match.

On Wednesday, United’s 20-year-old forward Hojlund scored two goals in their Champions League match against Copenhagen FC, ultimately losing 4-3. The Erik ten Hag-managed team is sixth in the Premier League standings after having their worst start to a season since 1962.

Denmark will play Slovenia on Friday, and on Monday, they will take on Northern Ireland.

The Danes are tied with Slovenia for first place in Group H in Euro qualification with 19 points each, although they are in second place when considering goal differential.

In conclusion, the fact that Hojlund Eriksen will not be participating in team duty for Denmark in 2023 is something that has to be thoroughly examined by breaking down the events that took place, analyzing how they will affect Manchester United, looking at how the fans will respond, comparing to other instances, consulting with specialists, and making predictions about the player’s future.
