Christian Eriksen’s message as he’s discharged from hospital after a successful operation.

Christian Eriksen’s message as he’s discharged from hospital after a successful operation.

Christian Eriksen gave an encouraging update on his condition and acknowledged all those who have encouraged him as he was discharged from hospital on Friday afternoon.

Eriksen, 29, suffered a cardiac arrest during Denmark’s Euro 2020 match with Finland last Saturday and needed life-saving CPR and defibrillation on the pitch.

The Inter Milan midfielder was hurried to a Copenhagen hospital in the wake of his collapse and spent six days under the close supervision of medical professionals.

Eriksen was also fitted with a heart-starter device (IDC) on the recommendation of heart experts, and he affirmed the operation was a success as he left hospital.

The former Tottenham Hotspur starlet will return home to spend time with his family, while he also paid a visit to his Denmark teammates on Friday.


“Thank you for the massive number of greetings – it has been incredible to see and feel,” said Eriksen.

“The operation went well, and I am doing well under the circumstances. It was really great to see the guys again after the fantastic game they played last night.

“No need to say that I will be cheering on them on Monday against Russia.”

A statement from the Danish FA added: “Christian Eriksen has been through a successful operation and was today discharged from Rigshospitalet.

“Today he also visited the national team in Helsingor – and from there he will go home and spend time with his family.”

Eriksen followed from his hospital bed as Denmark fell just short with a 2-1 loss by Group B-favourites Belgium on Thursday evening.

Both teams paid a touching tribute to Eriksen during the match, with play stopped in the 10th minute as Eriksen wears the No. 10 jersey for his country.

Loss by Belgium hollowed Denmark’s dreams of reaching the last 16 of Euro 2020, as they also lost 1-0 to Finland once the match restarted in the wake of Eriksen’s collapse.

But for the Scandinavian nation the most important thing is that Eriksen is alive and on the mend in the wake of his terrible ordeal.

A visibly distraught Kasper Hjulmand acknowledged as much in the aftermath of the incident. The Denmark boss said: “First of all, if it gets emotional, it’s been a tough night.

“We are all reminded of what the most important thing in life is — to have valuable relationships, people we’re close to, our family and our friends.

“We have a group of players that I cannot praise enough. I couldn’t be prouder of those people who took such good care of each other.

“He is one of my very dear friends, the way the players talked in the dressing room to decide to not do anything before we knew Christian was conscious and OK.”
