Christian Eriksen makes return in major tournament 17 months after cardiac arrest on pitch

Christian Eriksen is back at a major international tournament in Denmark 17 months after suffering a cardiac arrest while playing during the European Championships.

As his side began their World Cup campaign at the Education City Stadium in Doha, which holds 40,000 people, the 30-year-old faced Tunisia.

His first encounter saw him facing a tough tackle by Aissa Leidouni, Tunisia.

He fell during the Denmark-Finland Euro 2020 match at Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium. A device was fitted to control his heartbeat.

He was forced to leave Inter Milan’s Serie A club. However, he returned to Brentford and won a recall to the Denmark squad. In March, he scored three minutes after being called up as a substitute.

Manchester United’s midfielder for Manchester United was part of the team that won its World Cup qualifying group with nine wins – and kept clean sheets in its first eight.

In the summer, he signed for United and became a key player in the club’s revival under Erik ten Hag.

Kasper Hjulmand, Denmark manager, said Eriksen was “the heartbeat of the team” in an interview before today’s match.

He is not only a great player, but he is also a wonderful person. He said that it was a pleasure to work alongside Christian.
