Christian Eriksen has returned to Italy for the first time since his cardiac arrest during Denmark's Euro 2020 opener with Finland. Eriksen met Inter Milan director Beppe Marotta, as mentioned by ESPN. Eriksen was taken to a hospital on June 12 after collapsing on the field earlier that day.

Eriksen, 29y.o., spent a week in the hospital, where he had a type of pacemaker fitted, before going home to Denmark to recover. He has also received a lot of medical tests to discover the cause for the cardiac arrest. The day after the incident, Denmark team doctor Morten Boesen told reporters Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch and was "gone" before being resuscitated.

"The Danish midfielder met the club directors, the coach, teammates and all of the staff present," the club statement said. "Eriksen is doing well and is in excellent physical and mental shape".

He will only be able to return to play with his club if he can do without the subcutaneous paddles. Otherwise, he will have to choose another championship like the Dutch one, for example. As reported by Corriere dello Sport, the midfielder would have told to his teammates that he will be back on the pitch in 4-5 months.
