International – Eight months after cardiac arrest: Eriksen is back on the field

LONDON (SID) – Nearly eight months after suffering cardiac arrest at the European Championship finals, Danish footballer Christian Eriksen has celebrated his return to the field. Playing in a friendly match with his new English club Brentford FC could be the best gift for the star midfielder on his 30th birthday.

As Eriksen announced after its 3-2 victory over sixth-tier side Southend United, the new signing, who returned to the island from Italian champions Inter Milan in the winter, has been one of the assets of the newly promoted English Premier League team in 60 years. – A minute fit. In addition, Eriksen, who was put on a pacemaker after collapsing at the European Championships, made a goal.

Eriksen signed a contract with Brentford at the end of January until the end of the season. The former Tottenham Hotspur player had undergone a comprehensive medical examination in order to obtain a license to play in England.

At the start of the European Cup 2021, Eriksen collapsed during the preliminary round match of the Danish national team in Copenhagen at home against Finland due to cardiac arrest. While the doctors were still on the field, they began fighting for Eriksen’s life before the doctors could reveal everything an hour later. The next day, doctors put a pacemaker in the specialist.

However, Eriksen was unable to fulfill his desire to continue his career at Inter. Rules in Italy prohibit professional clubs from using players with defibrillators for health protection reasons.

However, Eriksen may have to wait a bit before making his league debut with Brentford. The attack expert said only last Thursday that “a few weeks” should pass for it.

However, Eriksen does not have time for another dream: the 109-times international wants to recommend himself at Brentford for a place in Denmark’s squad for the World Cup in Qatar.
