Christian Eriksen back in the Denmark squad

Eriksen - Denmark

Christian Eriksen has been included in the squad of Denmark for this month’s friendlies.

The-30-year-old was out for nine months after suffering a cardiac arrest during the Euros 2020.

Christian Eriksen collapsed during the match between Finland and Denmark. He was “gone” for 5 minutes after he collapsed in the match, but was resuscitated and an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) was fitted. The ICD allowed him to continue his football career.

In the winter transfer window, he came back to the Premier League and joined Brentford. He has made three appearances for Brentford so far. He helped Brentford beat Burnley 2-0 after assisting Ivan Toney’s opening goal.

“Now we do not have to wait any longer.”

“Christian Eriksen’s name was among the 23 selected that national coach Kasper Hjulmand listed during today’s national team selection.”

“Thus, the Danish 10’s returns in the national team jersey for the first time since his cardiac arrest in the European Championship match against Finland on 12 June 2021.” Dansk Boldspil-Union’s statement.

“Christian is in a pretty good physical condition,” Denmark coach Kasper Hijulmand said. “I saw him against Burnley last Saturday where he was the best player on the pitch. He is a player who thinks faster than most people do.” He added.
