Christian Eriksen plays closed-doors friendly against Southend United XI

Christian Eriksen played an hour in a closed-doors friendly against a Southend United XI on Monday, his first match since suffering cardiac arrest.
Ex-Spurs midfielder Eriksen created a goal in Brentford’s 3-2 victory.
The Denmark international, who turned 30 on Monday, joined Brentford last month after being released by Inter Milan.
According to reports, he last played a competitive match on 12 June 2021 at Euro 2020 for Denmark, when he collapsed on the pitch and received CPR before being taken to hospital.
Eriksen’s Inter contract was cancelled by mutual consent in December because players fitted with an ICD cannot compete in Serie A.
