Christian Eriksen Denmark

In the middle of the match, the Danish playmaker, the victim of a cardiac arrest, Eriksen was called up to the national team for the first time since the Euro.

Playmaker Christian Eriksen said he was “very happy” to return to the Danish selection on Thursday, nine months after his cardiac arrest in the middle of the Euro, which required the implantation of an internal defibrillator. 

Eriksen was summoned last week for the friendlies against the Netherlands in Amsterdam on Saturday and against Serbia in Copenhagen on Tuesday.

I am very happy and happy to return to the selection. It’s been a long time, so I’m happy to go back,” Eriksen told reporters in Marbella, southern Spain, where the Danish team trains. 

The 30-year-old Dane has been living with an internal defibrillator since the June 12 heart attack against Finland at the Euro. 

He had remained inanimate on the pitch for long minutes under the stunned eyes of his teammates, the stadium, and millions of viewers, before finally returning to him after an emergency rescue.

I was lucky with the doctors and the diagnosis. Everything is good to play again, and it motivates me even more, to go back to my old life,” added the player who plays for Brentford in the Premier League. 

I wouldn’t have come here if I hadn’t known if I was able to come back without anything bad happening to me,” he said.

Eriksen (109 caps, 36 goals) returns to a Danish team that shone at the Euro (elimination in the semi-finals) and brilliantly qualified for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar at the end of the year. 

Kasper Hjulmand said on Wednesday that “the most likely thing is that (Eriksen) will start as a substitute against the Netherlands, and then we’ll see how it goes in Amsterdam. But he will be 100% available to go home” against Serbia.
