'So deserved': Some Spurs fans praise 'superb' maestro following official UEFA announcement
Spurs midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has been included in UEFA’s official Team of the Tournament for Euro 2020.
UEFA announced on their official Twitter account that Danish international and Tottenham star had made the best XI for the competition.
Three England players joined Hojbjerg in the team, with Kyle Walker, Harry Maguire and Raheem Sterling also making the cut.
Hojbjerg was key to Denmark’s incredible run to the semi-final and their overall story this summer.
The midfielder started every game for the Scandinavian nation as they exceeded expectations to reach the final four. An extra-time goal from Harry Kane, however, eliminated Denmark from Euro 2020.
Denmark were the neutral’s favourite to win the tournament following the traumatic events that happened to Christian Eriksen in their opening match.
Moreover, Spurs fans on social media are happy that Hojbjerg has been named in the best XI for Euro 2020.
Here’s what some Tottenham supporters had to say on Twitter about the Danish midfielder making the Team of the Tournament…

Great season for Hojbjerg https://t.co/VDU93dAHYI— AZiMAGES (@360fisheye) July 13, 2021
Spurs fans will be hoping the midfield maestro can replicate the same form he showed this summer ahead of next season in the Premier League.
Hojbjerg was key to Tottenham last campaign, and the midfielder will likey once again be an important player for the club under new manager Nuno Espirito Santo.
