Christian Eriksen has been recalled to the Denmark squad for the first time since he collapsed after a cardiac arrest during a European Championship game in June.

The 30-year-old playmaker has resumed his playing career in the last month at English Premier League club Brentford after Inter Milan had to terminate his contract due to Serie A rules.

Eriksen was fitted with a special heart-starting device known as an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) device, which is not permitted in the Italian top flight.

Denmark plays a friendly away against the Netherlands on March 26 and hosts Serbia on March 29 as it prepares for the World Cup in Qatar in November.

“Christian is in a pretty good physical condition,” Denmark coach Kasper Hjulmand said.

”I saw him against Burnley last Saturday where he was the best player on the pitch. He is a player who thinks faster than most people do.”

Denmark have already qualified for the World Cup in Qatar which starts in November.
