Christian Eriksen and the rest of the Danish national team will still not train in Amsterdam on Monday.
Instead, the national team’s training will be moved to the Park, informs Dansk Boldspil-Union (DBU). The reason is that the conditions at the training facility in the Dutch capital are not as promised, it sounds.

DBU had been promised that the course would be watered by the irrigation system that is on the training facility, prior to the training. But that did not happen Sunday morning. The club apparently has a ban on using the irrigation system on Sundays.
Instead, two of the club’s people stood with a water hose prior to the national team’s training. And it was not satisfactory for national coach Kasper Hjulmand, who did not get the desired surface to complete the training.
Therefore, the final training has been moved to the Park on Monday at 16.30. Prior to the training, the national coach holds a press conference.
Denmark met the Netherlands on Saturday night in Amsterdam in a test match, which ended with a Danish defeat of 2-4.
The idea was to train in Amsterdam on Monday and then travel to Denmark, but now the national team takes home a little earlier in the day than previously planned and trains in the Park instead.
Christian Eriksen made his national team comeback on Saturday after his cardiac arrest in the Park on 12 June last year. After just a few minutes on the field, the midfield creator scored.
Monday will be the first time that Eriksen sets foot on the Park’s turf since his collapse during the European Championships. Denmark meets Serbia in a test match in the Danish national arena on Tuesday evening at 6 p.m.
