Christian Eriksen suffered cardiac arrest and “disappeared” before being reanimated on the field, Denmark team doctor – said Morten Boesen.

Bosen oversaw the work of providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation to the player after he passed out shortly before the break during the game. Euro 2020 play against Finland on Saturday.

“He left. We did cardiac resuscitation, it was cardiac arrest,” he said at a press conference organized by the Danish Football Federation on Sunday afternoon.

“How close were we to losing him? I don’t know, but we brought it back after one defibrillator, so it’s pretty quick. “

Boesen said it is still unclear why the 29-year-old passed out, but added that Eriksen might not have survived if the game hadn’t been played in a major football tournament using first-class medical equipment.

“I think this was a defining moment,” Bowsen said. “The time from the moment it happened to the moment when he received help is a critical factor, and this time was short. It was decisive. “

He added that he now believes that play should not be restarted 90 minutes after the incident, and said a psychologist was brought in to help Denmark’s players and staff on Saturday night.

“I don’t think it was the right decision to play this game,” Bosen said. “Yesterday evening at the hotel we received psychological assistance. Everyone expressed their feelings and how they see the situation, and everyone was happy that we did it and discussed everything.

“We are very grateful for the outside professional help.”

Denmark coach Kasper Hjulmand agreed that they should not have continued the match, but said the team would try to use the incident as motivation for their next game against Belgium on Thursday.

“No, we weren’t supposed to play,” he said. “We will try to establish normality as much as possible tomorrow. Players react differently to shock and injury, but we will try to get back to normal as much as possible.

“I have a feeling from the players that it might be too short to try to play football again, but maybe we can use it as a strength to get together and try to come out and do our best in the next match.”

Eriksen’s condition is stable at Copenhagen Hospital.

Yulmand said he spoke to the Inter Milan midfielder via video link and that “it was nice to see him smile.”

“He said, ‘I don’t remember much, but I’m more worried about you guys. How are you? Hjulmand added. “This is a typical Christian.”
