Christian Eriksson’s live news: The Danes are “stable” in the hospital after falling in a game against Finland
This is the latest news about Christian Eriksson,
Christian Eriksen was in a “stable” state and was “awake” in the hospital after he passed out in the opener of the European Cup 2020 between Denmark and Finland.
The 29-year-old former Tottenham midfielder was surrounded by worried teammates after falling to the ground and underwent cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
Medical staff rushed onto the court to give emergency treatment to the Inter Milan ace, and his teammates formed a protective barrier around him.
Just after 6 pm, when Eriksson was carried out of the court, while receiving oxygen, he was conscious and sat on a stretcher.
According to reports, Eriksson had a Facetime call with his Danish teammates tonight and asked them to participate in the game because “he feels much better now”.
The shocking scene happened at the end of the first half of the team’s first Group B match.
After the distressing incident, the game was suspended, but restarted at 7.30pm (GMT), and Finland won 1-0.
Understandably, the Danish coach Kasper Hjulmand was very emotional in the post-match press conference.
He said: “First of all, if it becomes emotional, it will be a difficult night. We are all reminded of what is the most important thing in life-to have precious relationships, close people, family and friends.
“We have a group of players that I cannot praise. I am proud of those who take care of each other so thoughtfully.
“He is one of my very close friends. Before we knew Christian was conscious and okay, the way the players talked in the locker room decided not to do anything.
“We have two options to play the game [today] Or at 12 o’clock tomorrow, everyone agrees to play today.
“You can’t play games with such feelings. We tried to win. Incredibly, they managed to go out and try to play the second half.
“To be honest, some players have already done it completely. Emotional and emotionally exhausted.”
Elsewhere, the England-Croatia game will continue today, as Southgate’s players extend “best wishes” to Eriksson.
Three Lions team leader Harry Kane, who is a close friend with former Spurs teammate Eriksson, wrote on Twitter tonight: “Chris. I give all my love to you and your family. Stay strong partner. .”
A spokesperson for the FA said there was “no indication” that England’s first Group D match at Wembley would be postponed.
