Eriksen in stable condition after collapsing on field; game resumes

COPENHAGUE.- El encuentro Dinamarca-Finlandia, correspondiente a la primera jornada del grupo B de la Eurocopa, ha sido suspendido tras un desvanecimiento del jugador local Christian Eriksen a los 43 minutos.

Eriksen cayó al césped sin motivo aparente, sin conocimiento, y, tras varios minutos en los que precisó asistencia médica urgente y se le practicó masaje cardíaco, fue retirado del terreno de juego en camilla rodeado por los jugadores daneses.

La UEFA emitió un comunicado en el que informó de que el partido «ha sido suspendido debido a una emergencia médica».

El ’10’ de Dinamarca fue trasladado en ambulancia al Hospital del Reino de Copenhague, que queda a menos de un kilómetro del estadio nacional, informaron varios medios daneses.

Todavía no ha habido ninguna información oficial sobre el estado de salud del jugador.

Cuando Eriksen se desvaneció, sus compañeros corrieron rápidamente hacia la zona donde se encontraba y llamaron a las asistencias médicas, mientras formaban un círculo alrededor para tapar al centrocampista del Inter de Milan.

Una mujer con la camiseta de Eriksen saltó al campo y fue sujetada por varios jugadores, entre ellos Schemeichel y Kjær. Según el digital BT, se trata de Sabrina, esposa de la estrella de Dinamarca.

Durante los diez minutos que Eriksen permaneció sobre el césped, se vio a varios compañeros y a jugadores de Finlandia llorando, también a parte del público, en medio del silencio, solo alterado por algún aplauso y algún grito de apoyo al jugador.

Minutos después de la retirada de Eriksen y de que jugadores y técnicos de ambos equipos abandonasen el campo rumbo a vestuarios, la megafonía del estadio pidió a los espectadores que permanecieran en sus sitios hasta nuevo aviso.

Transcurrido un cuarto de hora más, la megafonía volvió a repetir el mismo mensaje, con un ambiente apagado en las gradas.

El resultado del partido en el momento de la suspensión era de empate a cero, en una primera parte de claro dominio danés. EFE

Eriksen in stable condition after collapsing on field; game resumes

Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen was taken to a hospital

Saturday after collapsing on the field during a match at the European Championship, leading to the game being suspended for more than 90 minutes.

COPENHAGEN (AP) — Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen was taken to a hospital Saturday after collapsing on the field during a match at the European Championship, leading to the game being suspended for more than 90 minutes.

The governing body of European soccer said Eriksen has been stabilized and the Danish soccer federation said he was awake.

“Christian Eriksen is awake and is undergoing further examinations at Rigshospitalet,” the Danish federation wrote on Twitter.

The Euro 2020 match between Denmark and Finland had been halted in the 43rd minute with the score 0-0. It resumed at 8:30 p.m. local time.

UEFA said both teams had held an emergency meeting before deciding to continue playing. The players came back out onto the field to a huge ovation as they started warming up for a second time.

Mathias Jensen replaced Eriksen in the Denmark lineup. Only a few minutes were played before a shorter-than-normal halftime break.

Eriksen was given urgent medical attention on the field for about 10 minute after collapsing near the end of the first half. He was then carried off on a stretcher. UEFA then announced the game had been suspended “due to a medical emergency.”

Eriksen had just played a short pass when he fell face-forward onto the ground. His teammates immediately gestured for help and medics rushed onto the field. Eriksen was given chest compressions as his Denmark teammates stood around him in a shielding wall for privacy.

Eriksen’s partner, Sabrina Kvist Jensen, went onto the field and was comforted by Denmark captain Simon Kjaer and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

The Finland players huddled by their bench and eventually walked off the field while the Inter Milan midfielder was still getting treatment, as did the referees.

Eriksen was eventually carried off to a loud ovation, with his teammates walking next to the stretcher.

Inter Milan team physician Piero Volpi told The Associated Press that the Italian club was in contact with the Danish soccer federation.

“We’re in contact with the Danish federation, the team manager, the team physician. But we still don’t know anything yet,” Volpi said. “We heard what UEFA said and we’re all happy that he’s been stabilized. But that’s all we know.”

Volpi added that Eriksen never contracted COVID-19, has no medical conditions that he’s aware of and has passed every medical exam without problem since joining Inter in January 2020 from Tottenham.

“But we’ll talk about that when the time is right,” Volpi added of Eriksen’s medical history. “Right now, the important thing is that he recovers.”

Eriksen is one of Denmark’s biggest stars and the incident brought an instant sense of shock to the Parken Stadium, where about 15,000 fans fell into hushed silence. Some supporters could be seen crying and hugging in the stands.

As the fans in the stadium were waiting for updates, Finland supporters started chanting “Christian,” which was then answered by the Danish fans shouting “Eriksen.”

A huge roar then went up from all supporters when the stadium announcer said Eriksen was “stable and awake.”

The incident brought back memories of other soccer players who have collapsed on the field, including Fabrice Muamba, who needed CPR in 2012 when he collapsed in a match between Bolton and Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

Muamba, who fully recovered, tweeted ”Please God” as Eriksen was taken to the hospital. The Canadian Press
