It was in Saturday's premiere match against Finland that Christian Eriksen collapsed after a cardiac arrest.

The situation stabilized relatively quickly, but to prevent a recurrence of the nasty accident, they chose to operate on an ICD - a kind of automatic defibrillator that monitors the heart rhythm.

The Danish Football Association now announces that it was a successful operation, and Christian Eriksen, 29, has now been discharged from the hospital in Copenhagen.
