Danish FA reveals the Cause of Christian Eriksen’s collapse.

The cause of Christian Eriksen’s collapse during Denmark’s Euro 2020 match with Finland has been established by the Danish FA.

Former Tottenham star Eriksen collapsed on the field in the first half of Saturday’s match and was revived on the pitch before being hurried to the hospital.

The 29-year-old Inter Milan star was immediately said to be conscious and in stable condition and has now sent messages to his teammates.

In a press conference on Sunday afternoon, the Danish FA gave details of what caused the incident at Parken Stadium in Copenhagen.

Denmark’s team doctor Morten Boesen has established Christian Eriksen suffered cardiac arrest and that “he was gone” before being resuscitated.

Eriksen collapsed on Saturday during Denmark’s opening Euro 2020 match with Finland before being handled on the pitch and taken to hospital, where his condition has since been described as “stable”.


At a press conference organized by the Danish football federation, 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.”

Meanwhile, Germany team doctor Tim Meyer told reporters: “Fundamentally, we and other nations follow two strategies: 1. We examine our players regularly for underlying health issues.

“The DFB does this comprehensively and I presume that the Danish FA does too.

“2. When such cases occur, it is vital that those involved are able to take the right steps. Doctors and trained medical personnel are on standby.

“We always have two defibrillators, in case one fails. The chain of command and communication is clearly defined and works well.

“I personally don’t think the DFB need take further action. We can never completely rule out these cases but we are well prepared. In fact, you could say we do too much.

“We consider the official recommendations as basic requirements, and we do even more.”
