The Danes booked their ticket to Russian Federation with a brilliant 5-1 win in Dublin, Eriksen's treble sandwiched by a Cyrus Christie own goal and Nicklas Bendtner penalty after Shane Duffy had put the hosts into an early lead.

"There are no literally no words to describe how happy I am he is Danish", Schmeichel said of Eriksen.

Behind Christian Eriksen's brilliant hat-trick the Danes qualified for Russian Federation next summer, but Schmeichel felt a tinge of sadness that Ireland won't be able to join them.

"I am really disappointed", said O'Neill.

There was time for another goal for the visitors when they awarded a penalty in stoppage time.

It was Denmark who got the next goal as Eriksen found the back of the net with a composed finish to complete his hat-trick. Everybody is entitled to a little bit of luck, so I totally disagree with you.

The second goal was the most technical one, better than the others.

Eriksen, who has scored 21 times in 75 internationals, said there were more goals to come from Denmark in Russian Federation.

After taking an early lead which sent spirits soaring inside a packed Aviva Stadium, Ireland were put down brutally by Denmark, for whom Eriksen was lethal after an untypical ineffectual display in the first leg.

The Canaries legend was an unused substitute on Saturday night as Martin O'Neill's team held the Danes to a 0-0 draw in Copenhagen in the first leg.

"We'll take this with us and try to score as many goals as possible at the World Cup as well", said the midfielder, who doused former worldwide defender Lars Jacobsen, who was broadcasting for Danish TV, with champagne as he celebrated. "We've been fighting for so long to get there (to the World Cup) and of course now the two play-off games were very hard but with the result we got tonight we can be very pleased and it makes you very much looking forward to the World Cup". "They are technically better than us and had a world-class player [Eriksen] in their team".
