New dad Eriksen rejoins Denmark squad

Denmark playmaker Christian Eriksen has rejoined the squad after the birth of his son.

The midfielder missed Denmark's scoreless draw in a 2018 FIFA World Cup warm-up against Sweden at the weekend as he and his partner Sabrina Kvist Jensen awaited the birth of their first child.

"Christian became a father on Monday, the mother and boy are doing well. Christian has just arrived at the hotel and is training from today," media officer Jacob Wadland told reporters.
