Former Tottenham and Ajax player Christian Eriksen has been added to Denmark’s Fifa World Cup squad. The former Inter Milan player said it is a miracle he is back playing football for Brentford. Eriksen was named in Denmark’s squad for the first time since his cardiac arrest while playing at Euro 2020 last summer.

The 30-year-old playmaker was fitted with an implanted cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) – a type of pacemaker – after his cardiac arrest against Finland. He joined Brentford in January following his release by Italian top side Inter Milan. Denmark will be playing some friendlies in the Netherlands on 26 March and at home against Serbia three days later.
Christian Eriksen will join up with his international teammates for training in Spain before the two games.
The player has been with English Premier League side Brentford and he played against Newcastle United, and also in Brentford win against Norwich City and Burnley. He set up Ivan Toney for a goal in the 2-0 victory against the Clarets and has been impressive as the Bees have moved away from the relegation zone.
