Danish midfielder, Christian Eriksen, has shared a first message from the hospital bed, since he collapsed during his country’s game against Finland at the ongoing Euro 2020 championship.
Eriksen collapsed towards the end of the first half in the encounter in Copenhagen on June 12, and required extensive on-pitch treatment before he was taken to the hospital.
UEFA and Danish FA disclosed shortly afterwards that the Inter Milan midfielder was in stable condition.
The game was initially suspended before it was later restarted after a delay of more than 90 minutes, with Finland winning 1-0.
In a message shared on social media, the former Tottenham Hotspur playmaker appreciated the outpouring of goodwill messages from around the world.
He said he is “fine under the circumstances”, but still needs to go through some examinations.
“Hello everyone,” he wrote.
“Big thanks for your sweet and amazing greetings and messages from all around the world. It means a lot to me and my family.
“I’m fine – under the circumstances. I still have to go through some examinations at the hospital, but I feel okay.
“Now, I will cheer on the boys on the Denmark team in the next matches. Play for all of Denmark 🇩🇰
