Christian Eriksen who suffered cardiac arrest in the previous European Championship for Denmark ended returned to Kasper Hjulmand's Danish squad for UEFA Euro 2024 in Germany. Despite the horrific incident involving Eriksen, the Danes rallied together and reached the semi-finals in the previous Euro but suffered a 2-1 loss against E ngland.

The 32-year-old Manchester United was among the 26 names announced on Thursday for the tournament in which Denmark play Slovenia, England and Serbia in Group C. With Eriksen's inclusion, English-born midfielder Matt O'Riley couldn't be picked, despite a fine season in the Scottish Premiership for champions Celtic.
