Martin Braithwaite has started 12 games in the Championship for Middlesbrough this season and has scored three goals in the process.

During this calendar year, he’s made the same number of appearances for Denmark and has scored twice, with one of them coming in the UEFA Nations League victory over Wales this month.

The 27-year-old spoke about his experience with the national team in 2018 and Danish newspaper Tipsbladet have managed to get comments from the forward.

“I think it has been amazing. I could not do it much better. I’m really happy how it’s gone. It just shows my work has seen fruition, so I’ll just keep working hard. I feel I’ve become more crucial,” he explained.

This season, the Boro attacker has been deployed on both sides of the pitch and has also been used as a centre forward for his club and country.

For Denmark, Pione Sisto has started as a striker, which has forced Braithwaite to play in a wide position, but it’s not something that bothers the Championship player.

“I do not know. It is you who is one of the experts. It’s for you to say that. I do not think so much about it. I play my game and then I let the performance speak, and then we’ll see if that’s enough,” Braithwaite added.

Tony Pulis would be happy to know his attacker has enjoyed a good time with Denmark and will be hopeful the former Toulouse man can continue to shine for his club.
