Eriksen scores on Parken Stadium return; Italy, England win


AP Sports Writer

Christian Eriksen has marked his emotional return to Parken Stadium with a brilliant goal as the playmaker captained Denmark to a 3-0 win over Serbia on the same ground in Copenhagen where he suffered a cardiac arrest nine months ago. It was the playmaker’s first appearance at Parken since his near-fatal collapse there during a match against Finland at the European Championship. Italy rebounded from its World Cup playoff loss with a 3-2 win over Turkey. Giacomo Raspadori scored twice but Gianluigi Donnarumma was again at fault for the opponent’s goals. The Netherlands drew with Germany. There were easy wins for England, France Spain and Belgium.
