It will be recalled that on Saturday Christian Eriksen, while on international duty for his country, Denmark at the opening game against Finland, in the ongoing Euro 2020, collapsed in the 43rd minute of play, resulting to the temporary suspension of the game for some minutes to ascertain his proper health status.
He was rushed to Rigshospitalet, a hospital near Parken Stadium in Copenhagen, where he was later resuscitated, all thanks to the medical team and hospital staff.
The suspended game, which later continued ended in a 0-1 loss to Christian Eriksen’s side. When play resumed, following consent of players of both teams, Eriksen was substituted by Mathias Jenson.
