"Idiotic" action casts shadow over Christian Eriksen's fantastic comeback: "I don't know what this means"

Christian Eriksen made his comeback for the Danish national team on Saturday, barely nine months after his cardiac arrest at the European Championship. And he also scored. But after the game, an “idiotic” action left a sour aftertaste.

The Danes went down 4-2 against the Netherlands, but Eriksen couldn’t believe his luck after he was allowed to play football again in his country’s shirt.

“It was great,” said the Brentford playmaker. “There’s no better way to start a comeback. In my head I’m still the same football player. There is no difference from then. I am happy that I was able to show that I am a footballer again. Although it will be a few months before it is about football and not about that player who was away for a few minutes at the European Championship.”

The Dutch public cheered Eriksen loudly, at his substitute and his goal. But during an interview after the game, the Dane suddenly got some coins thrown at his head.

“First they hit me on my back and then on my shoulder. It’s just idiotic. I don’t know what this means,” said Eriksen, who could still laugh about it. “Maybe they wanted to buy my shirt or something.”
