Christian Eriksen has been one of the biggest talking points in Euro 2020 since he collapsed during a European Championship match between Denmark and Finland on Saturday, June 12, 2021.
Though the football star is known across the world as an attacking midfielder who has played for Tottenham Hotspur and currently plays for Inter Milan and Denmark, he is also a committed family man.
The 29-year-old attacking midfielder who is currently responding to treatment in a hospital in Denmark after suffering a cardiac arrest while playing in the ongoing Euro 2020, is married to Sabrina Kvist Jensen and has two children.
Christian Eriksen and Sabrina Kvist are married on an unknown date. They have been together long before the footballer left Tottenham Hotspur on January 28, 2020. The relationship reportedly started in 2012 when the footballer was playing for Ajax.
Reports claimed that Christian Eriksen who joined Tottenham Hotspur from Ajax in 2013, took Sabrina Kvist to buy a mansion in London in 2016. They both lived in the mansion until they moved to Italy in 2020.
Reports also claimed that before Sabrina joined Eriksen in London, she underwent a training in hairstyling but there is no confirmation whether she practiced the skill during her time in London.
The two lovers had their first child in London in 2018 which they named Alfred. Their second child arrived in 2020 whose name and gender had not been made public at the time of publishing this report.
Christian Eriksen gave his family a shock of their lives.
On June 12 when Christian Eriksen collapsed on the pitch during the Euro 2020 group game between Denmark and Finland, his wife, Sabrina Kvist was watching from the stand.
Immediately he fell on the pitch, the 28-year-old mother of two tried to make her way to the pitch to see what was happening to her husband.
Two Christian Eriksen’s national teammates, Kasper Schmeichel and Simon Kjaer rushed to give her support and prevented her from getting to the pitch.
It was reported that the footballer’s wife thought the footballer had died due to how long it took the medical team to resuscitate him.
Speaking to BBC Radio Five Live, Former Denmark goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel, whose son Kasper was one of the Denmark players that showed support to Eriksen’s wife, said: “That would be the worst two hours in my time in football.
“Absolutely no information. We could see it was very serious, we look to the reaction of the players.
“It happened not very far from where all the wives of the players were situated and of course Christian’s wife would have seen that, she came onto the pitch.
“You could see from the reaction of… my son Kasper running over to her and I obviously spoke to him last night and he went over to say Christian is breathing and she actually believed he had passed away.”
While Denmark’s team doctor, Morten Boesen said: “Well, what should I say? He was gone. And we did cardiac resuscitation and it was cardiac arrest. How close were we? I don’t know.
“We got him back after one ‘de-fib,’ so that is quite fast. The details…I am not a cardiologist, so the details about what happened and further I will leave to the experts.”
At the time of publishing this report, football authorities in Denmark had confirmed that Christian Eriksen is now stable and had already sent his greetings to the Denmark national team.
