During the international break, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg of Tottenham Hotspur received high plaudits for his performance for Denmark versus Finland.
After scoring for his country’s team in back-to-back games, Hojbjerg shared a message on social media.
For Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg at Tottenham, the season has not gotten off to the best of starts.
Ange Postecoglou has developed his own favorites after contributing significantly to each of the past Spurs managers’ teams.
Hojbjerg doesn’t seem to benefit as much from his style of front-foot, attacking football as some of his teammates do.
Since the beginning of the season, Yves Bissouma has been a revelation, while Pape Matar Sarr appears accomplished next to recent addition James Maddison.
Hojbjerg has thus far had to make due with a spot on the bench as a result of this.
Postecoglou hasn’t always been pleased with his performances when he’s come on.
Hojbjerg may have demonstrated for Denmark against Finland, nevertheless, that he might play a part at Spurs.
He demonstrated his offensive skills, which were previously only glimpsed in North London.

The 28-year-old midfielder jokingly said on Instagram with his mother, “Matchwinner yesterday, sill mamas boy today,” after the game.
After failing to produce a comparable outcome for Ireland, Matt Doherty praised the performance of his former teammate.
Rasmus Hojlund, a new £72 million Manchester United acquisition, also praised the accomplished Dane’s performance.
At Tottenham, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is currently in a challenging situation.
Given that he isn’t Spurs’ first choice, he considered leaving the team in the summer when Atletico Madrid showed interest.
But as soon as it appeared that Fulham was his more likely destination, he made the decision to remain.
Hojbjerg’s situation at Tottenham will be improved if he performs for Denmark in the same manner as he did against Finland.
If a player is in good form, Postecoglou seems to be the kind of manager who will give them an opportunity.
Another question is if he can replace players like Bissouma or Sarr following their explosive starts to the season at Tottenham.
