Christian Eriksen suffered cardiac arrest when he collapsed on pitch, says his doctor

Christian Eriksen collapsed on the pitch during Denmark’s opening Euro 2020 match against Finland.

Scenes of officials performing CPR and life saving techniques, along with the scenes of his onlooking family watching the event unfold sent shockwaves throughout every viewers body.


Health officials resuscitated Eriksen on the pitch and took him to hospital immediately.

Shortly afterwards UEFA and the Danish Football Association confirmed that Eriksen was stabilised and was undergoing further tests.

Danish team doctor Morten Boesen said “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.”

Boesen went on to say that all tests conducted so far look fine for Eriksen and they do not know what caused the cardiac arrest.

Danish Head Coach Kasper Hjulmand also said, “Christian is in good spirits and it’s a huge relief for the players after all this uncertainty.”
