Denmark’s Euro 2020

Football lovers from all over the world held their breath on the 12th of June, 2021. One of the best Danish footballers, Christian Eriksen, collapsed in Denmark’s EURO 2020 opener against Finland at Parken Stadium. Eriksen suffered cardiac arrest just before halftime.

Team captain Simon Kjaer rushed over to his teammate and friend and started CPR. When the doctors arrived, Simon formed a shield with the Danish squad to protect Eriksen from the cameras. The team doctor, Morten Boesen, later said that Christian Eriksen was “gone” before the resuscitation. The match between Finland was completed a few hours later. Denmark lost 0-1.

Inspired by the tragedy of their teammate and friend, who stabilized in the hospital, Denmark made it to the semi-final. They lost 2-1 against England due to a controversial given penalty.
