Christian Eriksen: Inter Milan Midfielder is back for tests after cardiac arrest to see if he can resume his career


Christian Eriksen, who is currently on a test trip to Inter Milan to assess his ability to play for the club again next week, will be back at Inter Milan to check if he can.

After suffering a cardiac attack on June 12th, the Denmark international collapsed and fell on the pitch. The 29-year-old has been fitted with a defibrillator (ICD) and doctors need to be sure he can perform without this if he is to play in Serie A again. Inter will examine him for medical reasons to confirm if he can compete again at the highest level. It is unlikely that Eriksen would play for six months, even though things are going well. Eriksen is expected to return to Italy to meet with Inter teammates in August. Eriksen had been instrumental in Inter winning their first Serie A crown since 2010, before heading to the Euros together with Denmark. The ex-Spurs midfielder began the match against Finland and collapsed at the end of the first period. He was then revived at Rigshospitalet Copenhagen. Following treatment, the Danish FA confirmed Eriksen returned home on June 18 after undergoing a successful operation to have a cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) implanted. In his absence, Denmark remarkably recovered from losing their opening two group games to reach the knockouts, where they eventually lost 2-1 to England after extra time in the semi-finals.
