"I'm only 19 and this Under-21 game against the English talents is a great test for me," he said, via the Mirror.
"Most of the opponents are a couple of years older than me and playing in leagues where I want to be playing in the future.
"Christian Eriksen is an inspiration playing in the Premier League, but he was 21-and-a-half years old - I've checked it - when he moved from Ajax to Tottenham.
"Maybe I also need another stepping stone before being ready for the absolute top level. I have great ambitions, and I dream of the big leagues like the Premier League. But I know that I need to be patient."
The attacker also explained his reasons for rejecting Liverpool and choosing to play for Midtjylland.
"Two years ago, it was too early for me to move abroad, since I wanted to be part of a first team - not a youth or reserve squad," he said.
"There has been different rumours linking me to other big clubs. That's flattering, but I keep my focus on my development.
"I'm working hard to improve all aspects of my game without forgetting the things I do best - scoring goals and setting them up for my teammates."
