Christian Eriksen: Denmark

Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen expressed his thanks for the goodwill messages he has received after his cardiac arrest. The ex-Tottenham midfielder collapsed during their Euro 2020 opener against Finland. He was revived after being given CPR on the pitch. The match was suspended temporarily after the Danish midfielder was rushed to a nearby hospital in Copenhagen.

Morten Boesen, the Danish team doctor revealed that Eriksen was “gone” before treatment by the medical staff helped revive him. Thanks to the combined effort of the hospital staff, Eriksen was able to send his greetings. Now, Eriksen has been able to speak to the public for the first time.

“Hello everyone. Big thanks for your sweet and amazing greetings and messages from all around the world. It means a lot to me and my family.” Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen said. “I’m fine – under the circumstances. I still have to go through some examinations at the hospital, but I feel okay. Now, I will cheer on the boys on the Denmark team in the next matches. Play for all of Denmark. Best, Christian.”

Denmark went on to lose their game against Finland by the solitary goal meaning they desperately need to pick up points against Belgium. Denmark once again plays at home with the players once again returning to the stadium where Eriksen collapsed.

“I have said that Eriksen is the heart, the pulse, the rhythm of our team. He has an incredible ability to perceive time, space, and rhythm in a football match.” Denmark boss Kasper Hjumland said. “He won’t be there on Thursday – we have a lot of other players who can contribute, and skilled players who can also find the rhythm of the match. We are putting something together that will be difficult for Belgium, I’m sure of that.”
