‘I want to understand what’s happened’; Christian Eriksen breaks silence after collapsing on pitch at Euro 2020


Denmark player, Christian Eriksen is up and feeling better now after collapsing during their EURO 2020 opener against Finland.

“Thank you, I won’t give up. I feel better now – but I want to understand what’s happened. I want to say thank you all for what you did for me,” Christian Eriksen has told the media, as quoted by Gazzetta dello Sport.

On Sunday, the Denmark team doctor confirmed that Eriksen had suffered a cardiac arrest, although the player’s previous medical examinations showed nothing wrong.

The Danish midfielder collapsed on the pitch during the Denmark-Finland game and was clinically dead for some time.

The 29-year-old has played for Ajax, Tottenham Hotspur and Inter Milan.

“How close were we? I don’t know – we got him back after one defib… so that’s quite fast.”

Interestingly, doctors still don’t know why the cardiac arrest happened to Eriksen.

“Eriksen’s preliminary tests have given good results, but he will have to undergo further tests. None of us knows what happened,” Boesen added.
