Inter Milan and Denmark star Christian Eriksen’ is set for a pivotal medical examination next month’ in the hope of getting all-clear to return to training – as he continues his miracle recovery from on-field cardiac arrest at Euro 2020
The 29-year-old collapsed during Denmark’s opening Euro 2020 match with Finland in Copenhagen after suffering a cardiac arrest, before being revived on the pitch via urgent CPR treatment.
After he was stabilised upon reaching hospital on the night of the incident, Eriksen was fitted with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) in his chest to regulate his heartbeat, but his career in football has been plunged into doubt.
Italian law states that no person can play sport at any level if they have any significant heart abnormalities, with the country’s football governing body revealing in July that Eriksen would need the ICD removed in order to play again.
Eriksen returned to Inter’s training ground last month for the first time since his cardiac arrest to undergo medical checks, with the Italian champions revealing the player ‘is in excellent physical and mental condition’.
