Christian Eriksen: Danish player ‘was gone’ before being resuscitated on pitch, doctor reveals

Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest and “was gone” before being resuscitated on the pitch at Saturday’s Euro 2020 game, Denmark team doctor Morten Boesen said on Sunday.

Boesen led the work in giving the player CPR after he collapsed during the game against Finland on Saturday.

“We got him back after one defib. That’s quite fast.”

The Inter Milan midfielder is in stable condition in a Copenhagen hospital.

Denmark coach Kasper Hjulmand says he spoken to Eriksen via video link and says it was “good to see him smile.”

Hjulmand says Eriksen couldn’t remember much about his brush with death and more concerned about his teammates’ well being and asked how they were doing.

“That’s typical Christian,” Hjulmand said.
