Christian Eriksen of Denmark has made a reaction on Instagram for the first time since he had a cardiac arrest while playing for his country in the ongoing Euro 2020.
Recall that on Saturday, June 12, the world of football was in shock when Christian Eriksen suddenly collapsed on the pitch when Denmark was playing their opener against Finland. The incident happened towards the end of the first half of the match.
It took the medical team minutes to be able to resuscitate the 29-year-old attacking midfielder before he was rushed to the hospital for further treatment.
Due to the incident, Denmark vs Finland game was halted for two hours before the game restarted. UEFA allowed the two teams to play the remaining 50 minutes of the game which ended 1-0 in favor of Finland.
Hours after, it was confirmed that the attacking midfielder who left Tottenham Hotspur in 2020 to join Inter Milan, collapsed due to a cardiac arrest. It was however revealed that he was stable and was responding to treatment.
Since then, Christian Eriksen has not been able to make any public appearance as he continued to undergo treatment at a hospital in Denmark.
On Tuesday, June 15, the attacking midfielder who won the Italian Serie A title with Inter Milan decided to show the world that he is alive and as stable as the Denmark team’s doctors have earlier told the world.
In an Instagram post he shared to show the world that he is getting better, Christian Eriksen was seen on a hospital bed while giving his numerous well-wishers a thumbs-up.
In the caption, the attacking midfielder thanked his fans and well-wishers for their good wishes, saying that their greetings mean a lot to him and his family.
He revealed that he is fine and he would be cheering his teammates when they play against Belgium on Thursday, 17:00 which is Denmark’s second Group B game of the European Championship.
Eriksen wrote: “Hello everyone. Big thanks for your sweet and amazing greetings and messages from all around the world. It means a lot to me and my family. ♥️🙏
I’m fine – under the circumstances. I still have to go through some examinations at the hospital, but I feel okay.
“Now, I will cheer on the boys on the Denmark team in the next matches. Play for all of Denmark 🇩🇰.”
