Christian Eriksen still has a chance of playing in Denmark’s FIFA World Cup qualifier in Israel on Thursday, according to head coach Kasper Hjulmand.

The Inter midfielder was originally expected to miss the international break, along with the rest of his teammates, after Milan’s local health authority (ATS) banned all of them from travelling for 14 days, following the club’s COVID-19 outbreak.

However, the story appears to have changed now with Gazzetta dello Sport this morning reporting that Inter’s players would be released as normal, provided they test negative again today.

Speaking to Danish news outlet, as quoted by, Hjulmand said of Eriksen: “We haven’t left him completely out of the Israel game.

“We’ll follow the situation closely in the coming days and then we’ll have to see what happens.

“We still can’t say if Eriksen is out of the first game (against Israel) or if he’ll arrive beforehand, we must see what happens at Inter.

“We hope there will be no more positive tests, then we’ll have to see if we can get him here.

“There’s a training session on Wednesday which Eriksen would have to take part in, if he was going to play on Thursday.”

Denmark face Israel away from home at 18:00 CET on Thursday, before hosting Moldova on Sunday and travelling to Austria on March 31.

Eriksen is technically not allowed to take part in any matches, even if he travelled home to Denmark, as per the orders from Milan’s ATS to Inter last Thursday.

However, it seems the Inter players’ individual federations will likely find a way round the ATS restrictions and free them up to take part in games as well as training sessions.
