Denmark’s team doctor has confirmed Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest during their Euro 2020 fixture with Finland but the cause of his heart problem remains unclear.
The midfielder fell to the ground just before half-time and needed emergency CPR treatment for 13 minutes. The 29-year-old was stabilised on the pitch and was taken to hospital where he was awaiting further checks.
When asked how close they caim to losing Eriksen, Boesen replied: ‘He was gone…. how close were we? I don’t know – we got him back after one defib… so that’s quite fast.’
He added: ‘Eriksen’s preliminary tests have given good results, but he will have to undergo further tests. None of us know what happened.’
Denmark boss Kasper Hjulmand said he had spoken to the midfielder, who could not remember his collapse but insisted he was more concerned about the welfare of his team-mates.
Eriksen told Hjulmand: ‘I don’t remember much but I’m more concerned about you guys. How are you doing?’
