Denmark's World Cup Tactics Accidentally 'Revealed' In Brilliant T-shirt
We've been going on for months about some of the beautiful kits at the World Cup but the shirts don't tell us anything about how each team will play, but those secrets do exist in one t-shirt on sale in Denmark.
It was a sad day for us all here at SPORTbible towers the other week when we found out that Nicklas Bendtner was injured and had to pull out of the World Cup.
The Lord is definitely in the top three players in the world along with Gianluigi Buffon and Andrea Pirlo, quite frankly it's a surprise we're even covering the World Cup with none of them in. What do you mean Pirlo's retired anyway?!
Fortunately for Denmark they don't just have Bendtner in their side and actually are more reliant on Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen.
The 26 year old has had another great season in north west London, arguably being Mauricio Pochettino's best player, scoring 10 goals and assisting another 10 in the Premier League.
But if the Danes were planning on keeping his importance a secret then Åge Hareide will be gutted to find out his tactics have been leaked onto a t-shirt:

Denmark do have a lot to thank Eriksen for when it comes to them being in Russia this summer.
They finished second to Poland in their group, which also included Montenegro, Romania, Armenia and Kazakhstan, with Eriksen scoring eight of their goals in the process.
They had to go through a play-off where they faced Republic of Ireland. The first leg in Denmark finished 0-0 but in Ireland the former Ajax player ran the show. He scored a hat-trick as the 1992 European champions won 5-1.
Denmark first face Peru in Group C before games against Australia and France and they're likely to be in a fight to finish behind France in the qualifying places.
They'll have a very good chance if Eriksen can continue his qualification form as only Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski scored more.
It seems the t-shirts might be pretty spot on.
