Still no explanation for the cardiac arrest
“Christian’s wife would have seen him, she came out onto the field. You can see it from the reaction of … my son Kasper, who rushed over to her. I obviously spoke to him last night and he is went to tell her that Christian was breathing. She thought he was dead. ” Kasper Schmeichel and Danish captain Simon Kjaer overcame their own anguish of losing their friend to support Sabrina Kvist Jensen, while she was reassured.
Doctors still have “no explanation” for Christian Eriksen’s heart failure during the Denmark-Finland match, the Danish national team doctor said on Sunday. “At the moment, we have no explanation,” said Morten Boesen. “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”.
The match was interrupted before resuming and ending in a defeat for the Danes (1-0). “It’s a ridiculous decision by UEFA,” Schmeichel said of the very controversial UEFA decision. “They should have tried to come up with a different scenario and shown a little compassion. ” The players also deplored it on Monday, regretting not having had too much choice.
“We have been put in a position where, on a personal level, I think we should not have been placed,” Kasper Schmeichel stressed at a press conference with Danish media in Helsingor north of Copenhagen.
