Christian Eriksen nets electric goal at Parken, stadium erupts (video)

DaMarcus Beasley tells Pro Soccer Talk what he thinks the USMNT is capable of ahead of and during the 2022 FIFA World Cup and reflects on his pro career.

Only the most extreme of cynics will begrudge anyone feeling a little emotional on Christian Eriksen’s pretty triumphant return to football.

Eriksen has looked good for Brentford in the Premier League since returning to the pitch following a near-tragic cardiac incident at EURO 2020, and he scored off the bench in his return for Denmark.

And Eriksen completed the reunion tour Tuesday by scoring a world-class goal in the Denmark shirt on the same pitch where he nearly lost his life one year ago.

World Cup-qualified Denmark faced fellow Qatar entrants Serbia on Wednesday in Copenhagen, and led 2-0 when the man with the captain’s arm band delivered this arrow from outside the arc.

A Denmark centurion, Eriksen has 37 goals and 25 assists in 110 caps.
