GET WELL!! Christian Eriksen To Have Heart-Starting Device Fitted After Collapse
Following his fall on the pitch during Euro 2020, Christian Eriksen of Denmark will be fitted with a heart-starting device.
In his team’s defeat to Finland in Copenhagen on Saturday, the 29-year-old midfielder experienced heart arrest.
According to Danish team doctor Morten Boesen, the ICD (implantable cardioverter-defibrillator) is “essential due to rhythm abnormalities.”
Eriksen is still in the hospital, but he claims to be “well under the circumstances.”
Uefa is interested in learning more about what transpired and whether protocols were followed.
Prior to Euro 2020, all teams, including physicians, signed a concussion charter that stated, “We confirm that if a player of our team is suspected of having had a concussion, he will be removed from the pitch promptly, whether in training or match play.”
Fifpro, the global players’ union, said it was in contact with Uefa to find out why the concussion charter had not been followed.
The handling of the situation was “sickening to witness,” according to Headway, which demanded that Uefa “immediately explain how it was permitted to happen and what measures it would take to guarantee something similar does not happen in the future.”
