Christian Eriksen joins Manchester United on a free transfer
The Danish midfielder is reported to have a verbal agreement with United and will officially complete his move to Old Trafford after a medical.
Captaining the team, Eriksen gave the vocal Danish crowd what they wanted in the 57th minute, cutting onto his right foot and firing home a fizzing drive at the opposite end of the pitch to where he collapsed.
Kasper Schmeichel, who has been the stand-in captain in the absence of the injured Simon Kjær, made the suggestion to hand the armband to Eriksen.
Eriksen was surrounded by his teammates as he celebrated the goal and received huge applause from a packed stadium.
Denmark plays a friendly away against the Netherlands on March 26 and hosts Serbia on March 29 as it prepares for the World Cup in Qatar in November.
Eriksen has resumed his professional playing career after being fitted with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator.
A dreadfully dull game was crying out for the watching Dane's flair as defences ruled the day and the two teams cancelled each other out.
The 29-year-old Eriksen has previously worked with Frank in Danish age-group teams and yet had no ambitions to return to England before he suffered a cardiac arrest, having spent 6 1/2 years in the U.K. with Tottenham before leaving in January 2020.
It will be a remarkable playing comeback to the English Premier League for the Denmark playmaker, who has said he was essentially dead for five minutes after collapsing in the opening Euro 2020 game against Finland.
