Christian Eriksen has scored just two minutes into his international return for Denmark after suffering a cardiac arrest last July.
Eriksen started the game on the bench for Denmark, before coming on at half-time. The playmaker wasted no time in getting back to scoring ways, as he brought his side within a goal of drawing the game.
The Dane suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch for his national side during a Euro 2020 game against Finland. His former club Inter Milan terminated his contract as he was suspended from playing in Serie A with a cardiac device implant.
What a moment ❤️

Eriksen spent seven months out of action before signing with Premier League side Brentford.
The midfielder came on to rapturous applause from the crowd and scored 120 seconds later.
Denmark ended up losing the game 4-2 to the Netherlands, however, Eriksen's return and goal will be the highlight of the evening for football fans.
