[이데일리 스타in 이석무 기자] Danish national football team midfielder Christian Eriksen (30, Brentford), who collapsed from a heart attack during the Euro 2020 game in June of last year, returned to the national team after 9 months and scored a comeback goal.

Eriksen scored a goal in just two minutes after entering as a substitute at the start of the second half in the evaluation match against the Netherlands held at Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam, Netherlands on the 27th (Korean time).

Eriksen finished with a right footed shot from Andreas Skop Olsen’s cross from the right flank in the second minute after falling 1-3. Denmark lost 2-4 to the Netherlands. However, in the match that day, Eriksen’s return to the national team and scoring were the biggest issues rather than the result.

Eriksen was called back to the national team after about nine months after he suffered a cardiac arrest after suffering a heart attack in the Euro 2020 group stage match against Finland in June last year.

Meanwhile, after terminating the contract with Italian Serie A Inter Milan (Italy) in December of last year, he made a new nest in Brentford in the English Premier League (EPL) at the end of January this year.

The match against the Netherlands was Eriksen’s 110th match A. As Eriksen entered the field, cheers poured out from the audience. The opposing team’s coach, Luis Van Gaal, and the players also applauded.

In an interview with Sky Sports in England after the match, Eriksen said, “(Dutch fans) was very welcome.”

Regarding the return goal, he said, “I was happy that the ball came to me. It was a wonderful finish,” he said.

Eriksen clearly showed his will to participate in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. He said, “I am looking forward to playing in the Qatar World Cup.”

Eriksen posted a picture of him wearing the national team uniform through SNS and said, “I don’t know how much I missed this feeling.”
