Despite having no history of heart concerns, Denmark team doctor Morten Boesen told that Christian Eriksen faced cardiac arrest.
Inter Milan midfielder collapsed during Denmark’s European Championship game against Finland on Saturday because of which he was transferred to hospital after the CPR on the pitch. The match was suspended for a while until he was confirmed to be out of danger.
“We got him back after one defib (defibrillation) and that’s quite fast”, said Boesen to a news conference. He also told that there is no clarity of why this happened and they have no explanation about it.
The player stayed in the hospital for further tests and is now in stable condition after which the whole Football community is relieved. Players as well as football clubs everyone sent him well wishes. Achraf Hakimi and Eriksen’s teammate Romelu Lukaku dedicated their goals to the player while Finland winning 1-0 to Denmark didn’t celebrate their goal in concern for the player.
Denmark coach Kasper Hjulmand said that he had contacted Eriksen through a video link he said “it was good to see him smile”. Eriksen was so worried about his Euro 2020 teammates and asked if they are doing okay.
Eriksen’s medical tests have been normal so far. His condition has been stable since the collapse. The player is awake and is in Copenhagen hospital.
