The Brentford midfielder came on as a second-half substitute and scored with his first touch; Germany defeated Israel 2-0, while Spain defeated Albania 2-1.
Christian Eriksen scored with his first touch in Denmark’s 4-2 friendly defeat by the Netherlands on Saturday, just 288 days after suffering a cardiac arrest on the pitch at Euro 2020.
Eriksen had to have a device fitted to his heart after collapsing during Denmark’s Euro 2020 match against Finland at Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium. His time at Inter Milan in Serie A came to an end as a result of it.
The 30-year-old, who returned to Brentford on February 26, made his 110th international appearance for Denmark in Amsterdam as a half-time substitute.
Eriksen scored Denmark’s second goal after replacing Jesper Lindstrom, superbly sweeping in Andreas Olsen’s low cross to bring his team back into the game at 3-2.
After Jannik Vestergaard’s 1-1 draw midway through the first half, Steven Bergwijn, Nathan Ake and Memphis Depay’s penalty put the hosts 3-1 up.
