Christian Eriksen collapses on pitch after suffering cardiac arrest

Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch during this past Euro 2020. Denmark's Eriksen collapsed shortly before the halftime against Finaldn. The medical team intervened quickly and Eriksen was saved. "His condition is stable and he continues to be hospitalised for further examination," said a statement from Danish officials on the following day.

"This morning we have spoken to Christian, who has sent his greetings to his team-mates. "The team and staff of the national team has received crisis assistance and will continue to be there for each other after yesterday's incident.

"We would like to thank everyone for their heartfelt greetings."

Eriksen felt well the day after

Eriksen felt well the day after the scary incident but he wanted answers and to know what exactly happened. “We spoke this morning [Sunday].

He was making jokes, he was in a good mood, I thought he was well,” Eriksen's agent Martin Schoots said. “We all want to understand what happened to him, and he does too: the doctors are making some in-depth tests, but we’ll need some time.

“He was happy, because he understood how much love he has around him. He received messages from the whole world. And he was particularly struck by those in the Inter environment: not just his team-mates who spoke to him in their private chat, but also the fans.

“Christian won’t give up. Him, and his family, want to make sure that everybody receives their thanks. Half the world contacted us, everyone was worried. Now he only needs to rest, his wife and parents are with him.

“Even tomorrow [Monday], he will remain under observation, maybe Tuesday as well. But in any case he wants to support his team-mates against Belgium”. Denmnar's team doctor Morten Boesen said Eriksen was gone.

″[Eriksen] was gone,” Denmark’s team doctor Boesen said. “We did cardiac resuscitation, it was a cardiac arrest. How close were we to losing him? I don’t know but we got him back after one defib, so that’s quite fast."

Eriksen thanked everyone for their support after the scary situation. “Big thanks for your sweet and amazing greetings and messages from around the world,” he wrote in a message tweeted out by Denmark’s soccer federation, along with a photo of a smiling Eriksen giving a thumbs-up. “It means a lot to me and my family."
