Eriksen returns to footballfévrier 27, 2022
Christian Eriksen made an emotional return to competitive football eight months after suffering a cardiac arrest on the pitch, coming on as a substitute for Brentford against Newcastle on Saturday.
The 30-year-old former Tottenham and Inter Milan playmaker collapsed during Denmark’s opening Euro 2020 match against Finland in June.
Eriksen was given a standing ovation by the crowd and both sets of players at the Brentford Community Stadium as he made his entrance early in the second half.
He has been fitted with a implantable cardioverter defibrillator, but was unable to continue his career with Italian champions Inter Milan, with ICDs not permitted in Serie A.
