Denmark's Eriksen returns to national team after cardiac arrest: federation

Christian Eriksen will return to the Danish national team later this month for the first time since suffering a cardiac arrest on the pitch during the European Championships last June, the Denmark football association said Tuesday.

Eriksen made his club comeback this month for English Premier League side Brentford.

The 30-year-old, who has been fitted with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator, has been selected to play in Denmark's friendlies against the Netherlands on March 26 and Serbia on March 29, the association said.
