It has been revealed that Christian Eriksen is in a good and stable condition after he suffered a cardiac arrest and collapsed during his side’s Euro 2020 opening game against Finland on Saturday.
This was made known by Jakob Hoeyer, communications director at the Danish football association, to reporters on Monday; “We are in touch with him. We were in touch with him yesterday and today. (His) condition is the same as yesterday, stable, good,”
The development is a good one for the round leather game universally as the competition will continue without any dark cloud. The Danish playmaker is coming off the back of a brilliant season with Inter Milan where they won the Serie A title.
Denmark went on to lose the game 1 nil but the result won’t be of utmost importance compared to the life of the player that was saved on the day. It’s a very good one for football and hopefully, Eriksen goes on to play a role for his side in the upcoming games of the competition.
He was very instrumental for the Danes in the game up until he slumped on the pitch. If he’s not given the green light to continue playing, he would be a big miss for Denmark in the competition.
Meanwhile, Dutch player Daley Blind was emotionally and mentally affected by the incident and considered not playing for his side in the game against Ukraine which they eventually won 3:2.
