Watch: Spurs target Mikkel Damsgaard scores a screamer for Denmark
Mikkel Damsgaard, the 20-year-old Danish winger who has been linked with a move to Tottenham, Leicester and West Ham, smashed home a terrific dipping shot to put his country 1-0 up in their clash with Russia on Monday night.
Damsgaard was found in a pocket on the edge of the Russia area eight minutes before the break, took two touches out of his feet and unleashed a shot that BBC pundit Micah Richards described as “sumptuous.”
The young Dane spent the 2020-21 campaign working under Claudio Ranieri at Sampdoria, contributing two goals in 35 games. For his country, he appears to be a bit more clinical, this his third international goal in just his fifth Denmark game.
It is little wonder Premier League sides are hovering if he can shoot like this – but they’ll have to pay a lot more than the €6.7million Sampdoria shelled out a year ago.
“In my view, Damsgaard is an enfant prodige,” Ranieri told SosFanta earlier this year. “He must be managed quietly without burdening him with too many responsibilities.”
WHAT. A. HIT!
