Norgaard desperate to end dream summer with Denmark Euro joy… even if Brentford pals are turning their backs on him

CHRISTIAN NORGAARD can cap off a dream summer with Euros glory — but admits his Brentford pals are turning their backs on him.

Norgaard and the Bees were promoted to the Prem in May and he is now aiming to become a European champion with Denmark to complete a remarkable few months of personal success.

But the midfielder says support from his mates in West London is rapidly drying up ahead of the semi-final showdown with England tomorrow.

Norgaard said: “It definitely already feels like a dream summer — and can only get better. It will be a special feeling going to Wembley again.

“I had been receiving a lot of text messages and voicemails from staff members and team-mates.

“Maybe the expression is divided loyalty.

“A lot of the staff and my team-mates have really cheered for Denmark so far in this tournament, with everything that has happened.

“Now, it’s time to pick sides — and I’m thinking they will still be going with England!

“But one of the staff said it’s a win-win for him.

“If we win, he would be happy for us. And if England win, then he can sing, ‘Football’s coming home’ the whole night!”

The Danes became many fans’ second team this summer after star player Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest during their first group match against Finland.

The ex-Tottenham ace is now out of hospital but Denmark’s swashbuckling style has seen many keep cheering them on — at least until now.

Norgaard said: “England are changing systems and have quality all over the pitch, it will be tough.

“This time it seems like they’ve set something up that’s working for them.”
