FIFA World Cup – Eriksen back in action for Denmark | Playon99 News



Denmark lost to the Netherlands in the build-up to the FIFA World Cup, but the result was the least of it: Eriksen was back on the field and lifted his team’s game.

By Facundo Di Bona (@facudibona).

Christian Eriksen, who suffered a cardiac arrest during a match at last year’s UEFA EURO 2021, scored a wonder goal into the corner on his return to the Denmark national team and during a friendly against the Netherlands, although he was unable to prevent his country’s 4-2 defeat.

Eriksen returned to the national team in style and, in his first call-up since that fateful afternoon on June 12 when he collapsed on the Copenhagen stadium pitch against Finland, came on at the start of the second half as Denmark trailed 3-1.

His introduction revolutionized the previously subdued Denmark: he scored a goal in the 47th minute, found his teammates with inside passes, and later his shot from more than 20 yards out almost equalized.

Now Eriksen will have another emotional stop as he will play again at Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium, the place where he suffered the cardiac arrest.

The comeback did not come because Steven Bergwijn, Tottenham’s Premier League player, who – in addition to scoring the first goal for the Netherlands – made it 4-2 in the 70th minute.

Beyond the return of Eriksen, Holland’s victory did justice to what was seen at the Johan Cruyff Arena in a match where Louis van Gaal, coach of the Orange, introduced a novel 3-4-1-2 that was showy in attack, but showed shortcomings in defense.

With this victory, the Netherlands are still in the running for a change in the FIFA World Cup draw: if Portugal do not qualify tomorrow against North Macedonia, the Orange could be seeded in the Group Stage of Qatar 2022.

The draw for the FIFA World Cup will be held on April 1, and the pairing system will have a change compared to previous years.

Qatar, the host country, and the top 7 in the FIFA ranking will be the national teams that will make up the first group of the seeded teams, while there will be a descending order to define each country’s group and all of them will do their best to be higher in the draw.
