In that incident, Denmark’s team doctor, Morten Boesen, confirmed that the 29-year-old had gone into cardiac arrest on the pitch and was brought back through a combination of CPR and an electric shock from a defibrillator.

Eriksen’s life was saved and he is now set to make a remarkable return to top-flight football with Brentford in the premier league. The Danish midfielder has been allowed to return to professional football after a defibrillator was implanted into his body, which helps to regulate his heart rate.
