Juventus defender De Ligt: Eriksen return gave me goosebumps

Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt admits it was special facing Brentford midfielder Christian Eriksen against Denmark.

Eriksen scored in his comeback international for Saturday's friendly defeat to Holland - his first since his cardiac arrest at last year's Euros.

Dutch defender De Ligt said: “It's not easy to tackle Eriksen, when he came on the pitch I got goosebumps.

"We are players but also human beings, in those moments you have to think about playing but it's clear that we are all happy that Christian is back playing at this level."
