What was said about Eriksen

The FA official claims getting the device out of his chest will confirm that he no longer has heart problems. Braconaro told Radio Kiss Kiss:

"Christian Eriksen cannot be given the all-clear to play in Italy.
"If the player has the defibrillator removed, therefore confirming the pathology can be resolved, then he can return to play for Inter."

Meanwhile, in spite of the terrible setback, Denmark went as far as the semifinals but lost to England in the extra minutes, with Harry Kane scoring from the spot which prevented them from going into shootouts.

Eriksen made his first public appearance earlier reported that Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen has been spotted in public for the first time since he suffered a cardiac arrest during Denmark's opening Euro 2020 game against Finland.

The 29-year-old superstar collapsed on the pitch and was revived after CPR was carried out on him before being rushed to the hospital for adequate medicare.

Eriksen spent about one week at the Rigshospitalet Hospital where he underwent surgery before being allowed to go back home.
