Christian Eriksen issues update after Euro2020 cardiac arrest
Eriksen suffers worrying collapse at Euro 2020
Inter Milan and Denmark star Christian Eriksen had the world watching when he collapsed during Denmark’s Euro 2020 opener back in June.
After receiving a throw-in in the clash between his side and Finland, Eriksen collapsed, to the horror of all of those crowded into the stadium. Medics were quick onto the scene as Kacspar Schmeichel consoled his wife.
Simon Kjaer started the CPR process that helped save Christian Eriksen’s life when he suffered cardiac arrest.

Fortunately, Eriksen recovered, but has not played football in the months since.
Eriksen now training with former club
As a result of the implant that Eriksen has had, he is barred from playing in the Serie A with current club Inter Milan, which could see him depart in January.
For now, however, he is keeping his fitness up in a familiar place. The Danish star has begun training with one of his old clubs, Danish outfit Odense Boldklub, near where he grew up.
🗣 “Eriksen reached out to us, and he is now training by himself.”

A spokesperson for the club said:
“Eriksen reached out to us, and he is now training by himself,”
“It’s natural for him since he played here in his youth and lives around the corner. We are very happy to be able to provide training facilities for him,”
Hopefully, Eriksen is able to return to playing football again soon.
