The shocking Christian Eriksen collapse at EURO 2020


First and most importantly, our thoughts are with Christian Eriksen, hopefully he’ll make a speedy recovery. It really does put the game in perspective when shocking incidents like this happen. I think the most surprising and shocking element is that this could happen to such a fit young man, worst of all being streamed live to millions watching at home and around the world.

It definitely reminded me of Fabrice Muamba’s cardiac arrest where his heart stopped for 78 minutes at White Hart Lane. In this part Fabrice Muamba talks relives his cardiac arrest. Hopefully Eriksen will be able to play again. 🙏

There will definitely be some very similar experiences between Muamba and Erikson.

This part is particularly harrowing, especially hearing the commentary word for word.

Barry Glendenning talks on the Euro 2020 Football Daily podcast about his own regrets about going on radio to discuss the incident.

Chris Waddle speaks candidly about how he couldn’t believe what he was watching and he has no idea how the Danish and Finnish players could continue the game that was so overshadowed by the incident.

In this part, Peter Schmeichel speaks emotionally about the worst two hours of football he has ever been involved in, especially as his son Kasper was on the pitch.

The only positive to take from the incident was the unification of the fans, as you can see from this clip, the whole stadium was chanting Christian Eriksen’s name.
