Doctors still have “no explanation” for the heart failure of Danish Christian Eriksen during the Denmark-Finland match on Saturday, the Danish national team doctor said on Sunday.
“At the moment, we have no explanation,” Morten Boesen said at a press conference. “This is one of the reasons why he is still hospitalized, to understand what happened,” he said, adding that the examinations carried out were “good”.
Towards the end of Denmark-Finland’s first period, far from the ball and any opponents, Eriksen collapsed abruptly on the pitch, his eyes rolled back. “He was gone and we did a heart massage to resuscitate him,” said Morten Boesen, adding that the player “came back” “quite quickly” thanks to the defibrillator.

The game had been interrupted, as the Danes, some of them in tears, gathered to form a circle around the 29-year-old midfielder and hide him from view.
The match then resumed and ended in a defeat for the Danes (1-0). “I have a feeling we shouldn’t have played” at the end of the game, said coach Kasper Hjulmand, who was delighted to have seen “Christian smile” in a conversation during the day. “And he said to us: ‘How are you? I think it is worse than me. I feel that I could go to train!”, Added the coach, reporting the words of his player.
According to Hjulmand, Eriksen “wants us to continue, so that’s what we’re going to do. We want to play for Christian.” Denmark must meet again this Thursday in Copenhagen, Belgium for its second match of the group stage. Also in Copenhagen, the Danish selection must also find Russia on June 21.
