Premier League football star Christian Eriksen has been called up for Denmark for the first time since he suffered a cardiac arrest while playing for his country against Finland at Euro 2020 in June.
Midfielder Eriksen was surrounded by his teammates and resuscitated on the pitch during the harrowing incident at the finals which caused the group stage match to be halted and the two-time Tottenham Player of the Year to have a pacemaker-style device fitted.
The playmaker made a remarkable recovery following fears for his life, although he subsequently left Italian giants Inter Milan by mutual agreement because of rules in Italy that bar professionals from playing with the device he now wears.
The 30-year-old could make his comeback at the Amsterdam Arena, where he established himself as one of the best players in Europe during a productive spell with Ajax between 2010 and 2013.
