I feel like I have never left the field. national team, also because I have missed a few matches in the last 10 years. It was very exciting “explained the former Nerazzurri, now at Brentford.

I am pleased to have scored right here – continued Christian, who also had to dodge a coin that fell from the stands during the interview on the pitch – The ovation of the audience was beautiful.

But I’m happy to be still a player. Each article with pictures and photos. it brings to mind memories of that moment. But it will not always be like this. Now we are talking about the player rather than the man who was absent for a few minutes during the European Championships. “

I must say that there were moments when I was afraid to face him, I had to ignore the instinct to restrain myself. I’m really happy he’s back. I think it’s something the whole audience was waiting for. ” Kasper Hjulmand, Danish coach, revealed what he said to Eriksen before letting him in: “Quite simply,” welcome back, enjoy. “
