The medics have performed CPR on the field, the player suffered a cardiac arrest and his now in stable conditions
Christian Eriksen was walking alone near the sideline around the 42nd minute of Denmark’s opening game against Finland when he appeared to suddenly stumble and fall forward, his body went limp and he fell face first to the grass, the ball bouncing away off his knee. Erisken’s wife came down to stand by the side of the pitch and was comforted by Denmark captain Simon Kjaer and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
The team then formed a ring around him to shelter him from view as medics performed CPR. The player suffered a cardiac arrest and his now in stable conditions.
Eriksen received many messages of support, his current soccer team Inter shared this Tweet.
Forza Chris, all of our thoughts are with you! 🙏
