Christian Eriksen nets electric goal at Parken, stadium erupts (video)


Only the most extreme of cynics will begrudge anyone feeling a little emotional on Christian Eriksen’s pretty triumphant return to football.

Eriksen has looked good for Brentford in the Premier League since returning to the pitch following a near-tragic cardiac incident at EURO 2020, and he scored off the bench in his return for Denmark.

And Eriksen completed the reunion tour Tuesday by scoring a world-class goal in the Denmark shirt on the same pitch where he nearly lost his life one year ago.

World Cup-qualified Denmark faced fellow Qatar entrants Serbia on Wednesday in Copenhagen, and led 2-0 when the man with the captain’s arm band delivered this arrow from outside the arc.

A Denmark centurion, Eriksen has 37 goals and 25 assists in 110 caps.
