Eriksen to have medical test as Denmark ace eyes return after cardiac arrest

Christian Eriksen will undergo a medical examination in Denmark next month to see if the Inter Milan playmaker can return to action.

The midfield maestro collapsed during Denmark's opening game at Euro 2020 and needed urgent medical attention after suffering a cardiac arrest.

Life-saving CPR treatment was given to the 29-year-old and Eriksen was revived on the field before being taken to hospital.

There he was fitted with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) in his chest to regulate his heartbeat.

However, the law in Italy dictates no person can play sport at any level if they have significant heart abnormalities meaning Eriksen will need the ICD removed in order to play again.

Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport report Eriksen will have a check-up in October to see if the ICD must stay in his body or can be removed.

If it is needed, Eriksen will not be able to feature for current club Inter Milan.

The report goes on to state Danish doctors are in constant communication with the Serie A giants asking whether it is possible that he could return to training.
