"The DFB does this comprehensively and I presume that the Danish FA does too.

"2. When such cases occur, it is vital that those involved are able to take the right steps. Doctors and trained medical personnel are on standby.

"We always have two defibrillators, in case one fails. The chain of command and communication is clearly defined and works well.

"I personally don't think the DFB need take further action. We can never completely rule out these cases but we are well prepared. In fact, you could say we do too much.

"We consider the official recommendations as basic requirements, and we do even more."
