Denmark's Christian Eriksen said he aims to make a comeback after his infamous cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 last year and is eager to compete in November's FIFA World Cup.

“My goal is to play in the World Cup in Qatar,” Eriksen he told Danish broadcaster DR1 in an interview aired on Tuesday. “That has been my mindset all along."
