Ten-man England were deservedly beaten by Denmark in their Nations League clash as Harry Maguire's woes continued with a first-half sending off for Gareth Southgate's Three Lions.
Maguire, who was lucky to escape a red card for an early challenge, was sent off in the first half after picking up another booking for a foul on Kasper Dolberg.
Things went from bad to worse just moments later as referee Jesus Gil Manzano pointed to the penalty spot – seemingly for a soft challenge from Kyle Walker on Thomas Delaney.
Jordan Pickford, who had come wandering off his line to cause confusion with Walker, had no chance as Eriksen marked a century of caps by thumping home the spot-kick.
England rarely tested Kasper Schmeichel in the visitors' goal and the Danes ultimately held on for a well-deserved triumph at Wembley.
Here are how the Three Lions' players rated…
Has to share blame on penalty as he was caught in no man’s land.
Sent off after the final whistle as frustration and anger ruined a good display.
Pickford did him no favours on the penalty. Had a tough night.
So loud, good leadership, but England’s defence exposed this time.
Sent off. Two yellows, the first could have been red, he looks broken.
Unlucky to be sacrificed after England went down to 10 men. Had been OK.
Nice delivery, the Leeds man is improving with every cap. Did better again.
Good, strong presence but does not have the guile to find killer pass.
Denied another England goal, close range header brilliantly saved by Schmeichel.
Could not find any openings, very little service and had frustrating night.
Looked well short of fitness, inhibited and nervous. Well below par.
