Inter have written an emotional letter to Christian Eriksen expressing how the club felt when he suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch in Denmark’s game against Finland.
Within the letter, the club spells out how heartbreaking it was to see how serious the situation around Christian Eriksen was as soon as he collapsed.
Christian Eriksen collapsed on the pitch during his countries opening Euro 2020 game against Finland in Copenhagen. He was given immediate medical attention on the pitch, including CPR.
He was then taken to the hospital for further examinations where UEFA and the Danish Football Association confirmed that was stable and talking. The game was resumed and Finland went on to win the match 1-0 thanks to a second-half goal.
“They were not normal days, the ones we counted from Saturday, from those moments that seemed so long and meaningless to us, from what we wanted it to be just a bad dream.”
Towards the end of the letter, the club notes that multiple Inter players who were performing for their countries soon after the incident dedicated their goals or wins to Christian Eriksen.
“At the same time, however, the expressions of affection were many, beautiful, spontaneous. While the match between Denmark and Finland restarted in Copenhagen on Saturday, Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi took the field with Belgium and Morocco, dedicating their goals to Eriksen. That “Chris, I love you” shouted by Romelu to the cameras is a message that has bounced everywhere. Tributes that have touched all corners of the world, up to South Korea, to the goals of Son Heung-min, Christian’s partner at the time of Tottenham.”
