Big five, L’Équipe’s European football podcast: Christian Eriksen, the underside of a comeback
The images had shocked the planet beyond football. Christian Eriksen, on the ground, surrounded by his teammates, after having suffered a heart attack during the Denmark-Finland match at Euro 2020. Since then, the Dane has recovered, got back on his feet, got back in shape too, with the primary objective of one day returning to the field. The former Tottenham therefore returns with a defibrillator implanted under the skin, a device banned in Italy, the country in which he wore the colors of Inter Milan, the club where he had signed in 2020, but not in England … What are the new objectives of the midfielder in club and selection?
Christian Eriksen now plays for the Brentford Bees. He found some Danish compatriots there, with whom he dreams of participating in the next World Cup in Qatar, but must first return to official competition, then the level which was his, after a first friendly match punctuated by a pass decisive. Why did you choose this team from the suburbs of London, atypical in its functioning, rather than another? What can he bring to this new club?
