Watch Christian Eriksen score screamer in training after Conte invites him back to Tottenham to keep fit

CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN has shown he has lost none of devastating abilities on the pitch with a stunning free-kick following his heart scare.

The attacker recently revealed his ambition to play again after being fitted with an ICD (Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator) following his cardiac arrest while playing for Denmark at Euro 2020.

The 29-year-old 'doesn't fear' collapsing again despite having 'died for five minutes' last summer.

And he is determined to return to Denmark duty in time for this winter's World Cup in Qatar.

Now he has shown he’s still got it by scoring a brilliant set-piece straight into the top corner.

The playmaker shared a clip on Instagram of him leaving the goalkeeper with zero chance by firing home from outside the 18-yard box.

His contract at Inter Milan was terminated last month as footballers with an ICD are banned from playing in Italy.

The device monitors his heart rhythm and sends shocks to the heart if necessary.

The Great Dane returned to training with former club Odense Boldklub.

Now he is with minnows Chiasso and using the facilities at the Swiss Promotion League side to keep in shape and hone his set-piece skills.

Eriksen has also been invited to train with former club Tottenham by his ex-Inter manager Antonio Conte.

Meanwhile, Kasper Schmeichel has revealed he felt ‘powerless’ watching pal Eriksen fighting for his life.

The goalkeeper was among the Denmark players to form a protective shield as medics battled to resuscitate former Spurs schemer Eriksen during the Euro clash with Finland.

And the Leicester keeper admitted he did not want to play out the remainder of the match despite a FaceTime chat with the stricken Eriksen in the tunnel of Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium.

Schmeichel said: “We'd been looking forward to the day for so long – and it all became very irrelevant very quickly.

“The way Christian went down you could see something wasn't right.

“We were powerless. We were in the same boat as everybody else, we didn't know more than anybody else – we just had a front row seat to it.

“The last thing we wanted was that image of Christian on the ground cast around and World TV.

"I knew his family with her and sitting not far from it and we didn't want them to see that. I couldn't look but I had to see if he was OK.”
