Denmark are reportedly considering a call-up for Matt O’Riley as he continues to thrive under Brendan Rodgers at Celtic. The 22-year-old has four goals and two assists already this season and the displays have caught the eye of Denmark boss Kasper Hjulmand.
According to Sky Sports News, Hjulmand has been impressed with the displays from O’Riley so far this season and could reward him with a place in the squad for their European Qualifiers next month.
O’Riley was signed by Ange Postecoglou in the January transfer window of his first season. It would transpire that he was Tom Rogic’s eventual replacement but the midfielder was impressive in his first half of the season, nevertheless. Before Ange moved onto Spurs, O’Riley was a key competent of the team having made 72 appearances in all competitions, scoring eight times and assisting on sixteen occasions.
Since arriving back at the club, Brendan said that he would like the player to add more goals to his game and he has certainly lived up to that. Not only that, O’Riley has added a defensive resilience to his game that was apparent in the win at Ibrox and the UEFA Champions League opener against Feyenoord.
Denmark are currently second in their Euros Qualifying Group behind Slovenia with four games still to play. They face Kazakhstan in Copenhagen on October 14 before facing minnows San Marino three days later.
