On June 12, 2021, everyone seemed to stop. On that day, Denmark faced Finland in the third match of Euro 2020. Christian Eriksen lost consciousness on the field in the 40th minute of the match. After that a long time has passed. He returned to the field after 259 days of that horrible experience.
In an interview after his return, Eriksen said he had seen the death up close. He was rushed to hospital. After slowly recovering, the fight to return to the field began.
By then, however, Ericsson had an artificial implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) in his heart. Due to which he did not return to the Italian league. The contract of the Danish footballer was also canceled. He was a free agent for some time. However, the team got the winter team change.
At that time, Eriksen signed for the Premier League team Brentford. From then on the wait started. When will he return to the field? The wait is over. The attacking midfielder is back on the field after 259 days in the English Premier League match against Newcastle.
Brentford coach Thomas Frank had earlier said that Erickson would be seen on the field on the day of the match. Today, in the 52nd minute of Saturday's match, Eriksen's compatriot Matthias Jansen was replaced by him.
However, he could not paint the day of his return, neither could his team. When he came on the field, his team Brentford were trailing 2-0 against Newcastle. Brentford did not respond to the goals of Brazilian Joelinton and Jacob Murphy. The team had to leave the field with a 2-0 goal rate.
