Can Christian Eriksen deliver for Denmark on the big stage?Michael Regan/Getty Images

The youngest player in the 2014 qualifiers, Eriksen has grown since the last campaign. With Denmark's new free-flowing style, Eriksen has scored 15 goals in 19 games. His pace and accuracy will help take Denmark a long way in Russia if the team continues its excellent form. Eriksen will also take inspiration from his campaign with Spurs, as the 26-year-old looks to make a big impression this year.
