Returning into action after hat-attack, Christian Eriksen has been recalled into the Denmark national squad.
Head coach Kasper Hjulmand today announced his team that will play the Netherlands for the first time since he suffered a cardiac arrest at the European Championship last year.
“I expect Christian to go in and be a deciding factor for our team,” Hjulmand told Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet.
“I did not expect him to play right now, realistically I thought he would be ready by the summer. However, Christian is with the squad because he is the best in that position.”
The 30-year-old signed for Premier League side Brentford in January as a free agent for the rest of the season after Inter Milan had to terminate his contract due to Serie A rules.
Eriksen, starting his second competitive match since his cardiac arrest, set up a goal that put Brentford ahead in the 85th minute of their 3-1 win.
