CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN will feature for Denmark at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar despite his career being in DOUBT last year.

The midfielder made the move from Brentford to Manchester United after his contract in London expired at the end of last season.

Erisken has started well at Old Trafford and is one of the first names on Erik ten Hag's team sheet.

The same will likely be true in Qatar when Eriksen will be handed the responsibility of marshalling the Denmark national team's midfield in the Middle East.

What happened to Christian Eriksen at Euro 2020?

Denmark reached the semi-finals of Euro 2020, falling to defeat against England at Wembley before beating Spain to officially finish third in the tournament.

They were without Eriksen for the majority of the tournament, however, with his playing career put at risk.

The midfielder collapsed 43 minutes into Denmark's first match of the tournament, playing in front of a crowd in Copenhagen.

After receiving a throw in, Eriksen fell to the ground and with nobody close to him there was immediate concern.

Denmark captain Simon Kjaer realised the severity of the issue and put his teammate onto his side to ensure that his airway was open.

While having a defibrillator used on him on the pitch, fans of both Denmark and Finland chanted Eriksen's name as he was rushed to hospital.
