Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest, the reason why he collapsed in Denmark's Euro 2020 match versus Finland on Saturday, according to the Danish team doctor Morten Boesen.

Today, Eriksen says he is "fine under the circumstances" and posted a photo of himself on a hospital bed with a thumbs-up as he wrote his first message since suffering a heart attack.

A midfielder for Denmark, 29-year-old Eriksen suddenly collapsed shortly before half-time in Saturday's Group B game against Finland as he prepared to receive a throw-in, and had to be resuscitated on the pitch.

Denmark's team doc Morten Boesen said Eriksen was unconscious when he reached the player on the pitch, "When I got to him he was on his side, he was breathing, I could feel a pulse, but suddenly that changed and we started to give him CPR. The help came really fast from the medical team and the rest of the staff with their co-operation, and we did what we had to do and managed to get Christian back."

"How close were we to losing him? I don't know, but we got him back after one defib [defibrillation] so that's quite fast. The examinations that have been done so far look fine. We don't have an explanation to why it happened."

The players agreed to resume the match only when they were informed that Eriksen was awake in the hospital, with play restarting nearly two hours after the collapse of the former Tottenham player.

After the Match
The result was Finland won 1-0 and Denmark forward Martin Braithwaite said the decision to resume the match was the "least bad one".

Later on Denmark manager Kasper Hjulmand said the game should not have been restarted, while former goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel described that it was "absolutely ridiculous".

Hjulman told reporters after the game, "It was a traumatic experience. We talked about those feelings and it would've been OK to say 'no' if they didn't want to play. Some of them were not able to play, some were ready. It's not normal to play such a game when one of your friends is suffering with a heart issue."

Hjulmand also shared that Eriksen told him he did not remember much from Saturday's collapse and said, "Christian is in good spirits and it's a huge relief for the players after all this uncertainty. There is no doubt that we have been on the ropes."

Denmark will play their second Group B match against Belgium on Thursday evening, also in Copenhagen. Coach Hjulmand said it would be "very emotional" for his players. "I have said - very apropos - that Christian is the heart of our team. He is the pulse, the rhythm of our game," he told reporters on Tuesday. "No one can replace Christian ... But together we will do something together, something different."

Show of Support
Fans who attended the game then gathered outside of Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen afterwards, to show their support for the player, while many in the football world sent their well wishes. Among them was Harry Kane, the England captain and Eriksen's former Tottenham Hotspur teammate.

In Goyang, South Korea, Eriksen's former teammate Son Heung-Min scored a goal in his team's 2-1 victory versus Lebanon in a World Cup qualifier, and yelled "Christian Eriksen, I love you", as shown on a tweet from his club Tottenham.

In response, the grateful Danish pro footballer thanked fans from all over the world for their ‘sweet and amazing greetings'.

He wrote in his Instagram account, "Hello everyone. Big thanks for your sweet and amazing greetings and messages from all around the world. It means a lot to me and my family. I'm fine - under the circumstances. I still have to go through some examinations at the hospital, but I feel okay. Now, I will cheer on the boys on the Denmark team in the next matches. Play for all of Denmark."

Damosk, i like to appreciate people who deserve it and to tell the truth. I am not impressed by the lies told by those about Erikksen and i do not believe in stories. I stay to my opinion with the vaccine, because even a doctor of Inter Milan says so ... in this news from the link. Everyone has the right to freedom of expression, but many people are evil because of envy, and pupincurism characterizes them. The truth about this player can be found out, but not now... because there are planetary interests...

I was very sorry, as this player collapsed on the grass, but now he is fine and I wish the best to this great player and human being, we must be grateful for life and an opportunity that God gives us in this world, we do not despise it He cares for us and protects us.
 CALICUL05/08/2021 23:37:16 GMT
Christian Eriksen has informed his colleagues from Inter Milan that he wants to return in field. Medicine has probably evolved a lot, if he can continue to play. I don't know about that, but he does it at his own risk. It's his life and he knows better.
 Rocio2509/08/2021 16:32:35 GMT
No one is free from being able to suffer cardiac arrest and unfortunately it happened to this great player who is Christian Eriksen, although the doctors say that he will no longer be able to play, but hope should not be lost, however this player gave everything for his country, very unfortunate for what happened to him.
 CALICUL09/08/2021 16:38:10 GMT
he was lucky to escape. Now he has to take care of his life and to play less football.
 Rocio2516/08/2021 03:09:30 GMT
Unfortunately what happened to this player, the important thing is that he is well out of danger, the doctors say that he will not be able to continue playing and it is very sad because it is a good player to receive news like that for a player is painful but we hope it is otherwise and can continue playing
 dule-vu16/08/2021 03:31:09 GMT
Nobody will sign him after this,its sure!
 Rogerio1016/08/2021 06:33:27 GMT
So what is happened whi this player now? Did he recover, can he even play football anymore? Yes you are right Dule i think he will have problems with finding next club, now he was playing for Tottenham? And if i remember pretty succesfuly. I wish him all the best with healt first and then in career too.
 dule-vu16/08/2021 06:33:34 GMT
I think that he wanted to try,but inter said no way,but cant remember now!will try to find later this!
 Rocio2517/08/2021 22:18:29 GMT
Well, cardiac arrest is usually caused by an electrical alteration in the heart and this player suffered very unfortunately many people have suffered from it and some have led to death and others have recovered and this is the case of this player who is recovered
 dule-vu17/08/2021 22:31:13 GMT
Only important is that he is alive,for other things he have time!
 Rogerio1018/08/2021 05:48:29 GMT
Yep that's only what matter that he is allive and healthy. With his carreer if he choose to spend the money wisely he has more then he needs it for the rest of his live. And if it's end of carrer let' be it. The healt is always on first place. He can still became manager or get other functions in football if he like the game soo much.
 dule-vu18/08/2021 06:34:36 GMT

 Rocio2525/08/2021 21:49:02 GMT
Very sad this news about this player but it is fine and while we are alive we have to enjoy and also live in peace and harmony, this player is saved but other people do not live to tell about it they cannot recover in which we see that the fans show their support by sending good wishes to this great player who deserves the best because he is a great player

the player had a great chance at life, which can be achieved if his health is very good now
 Rocio2501/09/2021 23:32:15 GMT
Very sad what happened to this player but he recovered well but other people do not get to recover and die but this case of this player recovered very well and now he must take care of himself to see him play soccer again because he is one of the best players.
 CALICUL01/09/2021 23:38:09 GMT
it is good that he is alive
 ligador3702/09/2021 04:13:50 GMT
The important thing is that he survived. The bad thing is that he almost seems to have finished his football career. He cannot play at Inter Milan (Italy does not allow it) and a few days ago I read that Eriksen wanted to play for Ajax in the Netherlands, but yesterday closed the period of passes in Europe and I did not hear any news about it. I guess he won't be able to play for a long time.
 dule-vu02/09/2021 05:15:01 GMT
everything is over and he can now turn to normal life without football!
 Rocio2506/09/2021 02:47:17 GMT
It is regrettable what happened to this player Christian Eriksen but the good thing is that it is okay because no one is free to go through the same thing so we must take care but the good thing is that we must encourage this player because a great player and a great person is one of the best players because he gives the best in the cnach
 dule-vu06/09/2021 04:49:39 GMT
Close this threads!
 Rocio2512/09/2021 01:07:36 GMT
Very sadly what happened to this great player nobody is free to go through it so we must take care of ourselves and above all we must always have check-ups by the doctor to rule out any disease so take care and eat well.
