Eriksen to miss Denmark matches due to Covid-19

Sun 20 March 2022 | 16:36

The Danish star will be out of action for some time due to Covid-19.

Brentford

's Danish midfielder

Christian Eriksen

has tested positive and will return to England this week.

The 30-year-old midfielder suffered a heart attack during Euro 2020, after which he was away from the football field for a while until he finally joined Brentford, returning to the field in January and performing well. He recorded an assist during his side's 2-0 win over Burnley, his first impact on a goal since returning to action. His good performance led to him being called up for the upcoming friendlies, but in the meantime he has been infected with Covid-19.

However, the

Denmark

coach expressed hope that Eriksen would be ready to meet the Netherlands.

Kasper Hjulmand said:

"We've been running dialogue with Christian and Brentford on the situation."

"We expect to see Christian as soon as possible, later in the week. 

"We are happy to get him in the team and expect to have him with us for the exciting friendly matches against Holland and Serbia."
