Denmark’s team doctor said on Sunday there was still “no explanation” for why midfielder Christian Eriksen collapsed during his country’s opening Euro 2020 game against Finland, but confirmed he had suffered a cardiac arrest.
“He was gone, and we did cardiac resuscitation,” team doctor Morten Boesen told a press conference.
“How close were we? I don’t know. We got him back after one defib (defibrillation), so that’s quite fast,” Boesen added.
However, the physician also said they had yet to discover the cause of the 29-year-old’s heart attack.
