The emotional detail that Christian Eriksen had with his teammates from the Danish National Team upon receiving discharge
Just a week ago the world of sports was paralyzed with the fading in the middle of the football field of Christian Eriksen, who at that time was playing one of the first matches of Euro 2020 with the National Team of Denmark, his native country. Fortunately those agonizing minutes were a scare and the quick action of both his teammates and the doctors have allowed the Danish player, who is 29 years old and is part of the Inter Milan squad, to recover. That same night he was immediately transferred to the Rigshospitalet hospital and this Friday he was discharged after undergoing heart surgery in which an internal defibrillator was implanted. In this way, he begins a new stage in which he only has words of gratitude. "Thank you for the enormous amount of messages, it has been incredible to see and feel them. The operation has gone well and I am well under the circumstances," he said.
In these days away from the competition, the number ten of the Danish edition recognizes that he has been very attentive to the matches of his team, which he saw on television play against Belgium on Thursday night and which he will cheer on Monday when he faces Russia in the group stage of Euro 2020. But not only will he send his forces to his teammates, but as soon as he left the hospital the first thing he wanted to do was meet them. After being discharged, he traveled with his family to Helsingør, north of Copenhagen, which is the headquarters of the concentration. There he surprised his teammates, he was able to talk to them and also give them that desired hug that has filled all of them with energy and optimism after the anguishing minutes they lived when they saw Eriksen collapse on the Parken Stadion lawn.
It was this Saturday morning during a press conference when the Danish team spoke about Eriksen's visit, who was also eating with them before returning home to continue his recovery. "He seemed upbeat and energized the whole team. It was all very normal. We were able to give him a hug. It was good to see him hanging around with his son. It was a good day for many reasons. It was what we needed," said Christian Nørgaard. On his part, Joakim Mæhle has said that the reunion has been emotional, he has acknowledged that he needed to see him alive after the scare and has explained feeling satisfied because all the teammates reacted well to the situation. In addition, Andreas Skov Olsen says that seeing his friend smiling at him has given him "a lot of peace".
The affection of the Royal Family
Sabrina Kvist Jensen, Eriksen's partner, as well as his two children in common and the rest of the footballer's family and friends are completely committed to this new stage in which the player's return to sports competition is in the air. The world of sport also supports him after the scare he experienced and the tributes do not stop happening. The last of them arrived on Thursday during the Danish National Team match, in which Federico and Mary from Denmark were present as well as his son Christian and his nephews, Nicolás and Félix. The five of them went to the stadium to support their team and in minute ten they rose from the stands, like the rest of the audience, to dedicate a long applause to Eriksen. In addition, the wife of the heir to the Nordic throne sent him her best wishes in a message last Saturday.
