EURO 2020:

Denmark star Christian Eriksen may have to stay in hospital for two more days but is making a good recovery and he “doesn’t give up”.

Iran PressEurope: Eriksen collapsed during Saturday’s European Championship game against Finland in Copenhagen and doctors think he had a cardiac arrest. He was resuscitated on the pitch.

Eriksen “joked and was in a good mood”, according to his agent Martin Schoots. 

Schotts told Gazzetta: “We spoke this morning (yesterday). He joked, he was in a good mood, I found him fine. We all want to understand what happened to him, he wants to do it too."

“He was happy because he understood how much love is around. Messages have reached him from all over the world. And he was particularly impressed by those of the Interworld: not only the teammates he heard through the chat, but also the fans. Christian doesn't give up," he said. 

“He and his family want their thanks to everyone,” Schoots added.

UEFA EURO 2020 is being held across 11 host cities from 11 June 2021, but both semi-finals and the final will be held at Wembley Stadium in London.
