Midfielder back in red and white for first time since his collapse in Euro 2020 last summer

With Denmark facing the Netherlands and Serbia in upcoming friendlies, coach Morten Hjulmand unveiled his squad just moments ago.

The big question was whether Christian Eriksen would be in the national team for the first time since he collapsed with cardiac arrest in Euro 2020 last summer.

Hjulmand confirmed that the Brentford midfielder was indeed back in the squad.

“He is 100 percent ready and is where he needs to be,” said Hjulmand. 

Eriksen has stated that his goal is to play for Denmark in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Eriksen has 109 caps for Denmark, scoring 36 goals.
