Eriksen message to Denmark
During the initial matches of Euro 2020, Denmark football player Christian Eriksen suffered a heart arrest on the pitch in a match against Finland. Christian Eriksen sent a Whatsapp message to his Denmark teammates following their triumph over the Czech Republic, saying, “I am happy of you,” as reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Eriksen collapsed on the ground during Denmark’s UEFA Euro 2020 opener football match against Finland. He received emergency CPR on the pitch and was stabilized before being sent to the hospital, where a heart-starter device was installed.
In the last quarter-final match of the tournament, Denmark smashed the Czech Republic 2-1 and reached the semi-finals to face England. After their 2-1 triumph over the Czech Republic, the 29-year-old sent a Whatsapp message to his teammates, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport. Eriksen wrote: “I am proud of you” as his teammates celebrated gaining access to the semis where they will face England.
“It’s magical. The first thing I showed the boys when we met was a picture of Wembley, when we were there in the autumn,” Denmark coach Kasper Hjulmand told UEFA.com. “I said that we were going to come back. It was like we were playing in a Danish stadium because our dedicated fans came to support us in Baku. We’re deeply thankful.”
“We had a goal before heading into this tournament, and that was to go back to Wembley. I’d be lying if I said that we’re OK with reaching the semis. We need to recover and then we have another match in four days,” added Milan defender and Denmark captain Simon Kjaer.
