Last night, Eriksen scored after 10 months away from international duty.

Denmark

star

Christian Eriksen

feels he has become a footballer again after returning to international football and scoring for his team.

Eriksen suffered a heart attack during Euro 2020 and was forced to stay away from football for 287 days. He joined

Brentford

in the winter and has now returned to the Danish national team, scoring his first goal since Euro 2020. After the game, despite the 4-2 defeat against the Netherlands, he expressed his happiness that he felt like a footballer again.

He said: 

"I felt like a footballer again. I have been away internationally for so long," he told NOS.

"I'm just very happy to be back. To also score is that little bit extra, it gives a wonderful feeling. I was looking forward to it."

The former Inter and Tottenham star came close to scoring the second goal, but his long-range shot went just wide of the post. He added: 

"It's great that I scored, but I would rather have scored two. It's a shame the ball didn't go in.

"I had wonderful years here and I remembered where the goal was here in the Arena."
