Tottenham`s Denmark playmaker Eriksen to have ankle scan

Copenhagen: Tottenham Hotspur`s Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen will have a scan on his injured ankle after being carried off on a stretcher in Friday`s 2-1 friendly win over Norway in Herning.

Eriksen received the knock when he was felled on the edge of Norway`s area just before halftime and was replaced.

"I don`t know how serious it is," Denmark coach Morten Olsen told Danish radio station DR. "Our doctor Soren Kaalund has spoken to Tottenham`s doctor and he will examine Eriksen early next week.

"I didn`t believe it was too serious," Olsen said, adding he was irritated his medical staff ran on to the field because he wanted Eriksen to take the subsequent free kick.

"It`s sad that such an injury should occur, but let`s not be saddened in advance. Let`s see how serious it is," he told DR.

Norway defender Vegard Forren wished Eriksen a speedy recovery following his tackle, saying: "I never got to say sorry to Christian on the pitch.

"He lay there and had treatment and was carried off shortly after. That`s what happened and I hope it`s not too serious," he told newspaper Ekstrabladet.

Tottenham`s next match is away to Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday November 24.
