Eriksen scored with a coin on the comeback after the game
A mindless thug tossed a coin at Christian Eriksen after the Dane made his first international appearance since suffering a heart attack on the pitch, writes ETIENNE FERMIE.
The now Brentford player was back in action for his country 287 days after suffering cardiac arrest on the pitch against Finland at Euro 2020.
Eriksen recently shrugged off a struggle with Covid to be involved and was called off the bench at half-time in the friendly against the Netherlands.
Fittingly, Eriksen took place at the former Ajax star’s old Amsterdam Arena and made an immediate impression.
Eriksen, who came on while his side were 3-1 down, relied on a 47th-minute cutback from Andreas Skov Olsen to fire past Dutch goalkeeper Mark Flekken.
The Netherlands would win 4-2 before the shocking post-match coin toss.
Eriksen, 30, was interviewed on the pitch after returning but was hit by a projectile halfway through.
The former Tottenham star was distracted for a moment when a coin appeared to hit his side before continuing with his reply.
Shocked, he said, “Did you just flip a coin? Unbelievable.”
This bizarre incident put a bitter note on Eriksen’s big day.
