'Eriksen Was Gone,’ Denmark Team Doctor Reveals

Denmark’s team doctor, Morten Boesen has revealed that Christian Eriksen was “gone” after suffering from a cardiac arrest during his country’s Euro 2020 opening match against Finland.

29-year-old Erikesn collapsed a few minutes before half-time and was given emergency CPR on the pitch with the game temporarily suspended. Although the Inter Milan midfielder is now in stable condition, the Danish team’s doctor hinted thathe was practically dead.

“The exams that have been done so far look fine,” Boesen told a news conference. When asked what caused the incident, he said:

“We don’t have an explanation why it happened. I can’t answer that question.I didn’t see it live, I saw it on screen when it happened. You saw the same as me. No explanation so far.”

Boesen also confirmed Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest, saying: “He was gone.”

“We did cardiac resuscitation, it was a cardiac arrest.How close were we to losing him? I don’t know, but we got him back after one defib, so that’s quite fast.”

The Denmark football team’s head coach, Kasper Hjulmand while commenting on the incident said Eriksen had told him he didn’t remember much from the collapse, but was willing to get back to training as soon as possible.

Hjulmand quoted the midfielder as saying:

“I think you are feeling worse than I am. I feel as if I’m about to go training now, boys.”

“Christian is in good spirits and it’s a huge relief for the players after all this uncertainty,” Hjulmand said. “There is no doubt that we have been on the ropes.”

Denmark eventually lost the game to Finland after it was restarted through a goal from Joel Pohjanpalo. You can check out this live bet soccer.
