Leicester City Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel: “Denmark Dedicate World Cup Qualification To Inter’s Christian Eriksen”

The Danish national team managed to secure qualification for the World Cup in 2022 without their captain Christian Eriksen, but the Inter man is still an important presence for them.

Speaking to Danish broadcaster Kanal 5, as reported by FCInterNews, Leicester City and Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel explained that the Danish squad had dedicated their 1-0 victory over Austria and subsequent qualification for the World Cup to their stricken captain.

Eriksen had been set to be one of the Danish team’s main players at the Euros during the summer, but a shocking collapse from what was determined to be a cardiac arrest during the team’s group stage opener against Finland has ruled him out of football ever since.

Fortunately, the 29-year-old has recovered and is in good health after his health emergency even though he cannot play, while the team have enjoyed success even without the Inter man, making the semi-final of the Euros and now securing qualification for the World Cup in 2022, their second participation in a row in the competition.

“I thank everyone for the support,” Schmeichel stated. “I dedicate the victory to Christian and Lars Hogh [national team goalkeeping coach who is battling cancer]. I’m not here today, we talked before the game and we decided that this celebration had to be for them. And we can’t wait to see them again.”
