Christian Eriksen was the talk of UEFA Euro 2020 last week after he collapsed on the field during Denmark’s clash against Finland. As he was stretchered out of the arena, he seemed stable, while the team doctor later confirmed that he had suffered a cardiac arrest.

Meanwhile, nearly a week since, Eriksen remains in the hospital while his condition remains stable. Furthermore, he is set to have a heart starter device (ICD) implanted to his heart, the team doctor has confirmed.

“After Christian has been through different heart examinations it has been decided that he should have an ICD (heart starter). This device is necessary after the cardiac attack due to rhythm disturbances,” said team doctor Morten Boesenin a statement.

“Christian has accepted the solution and the plan has moreover been confirmed by specialists nationally and internationally who all recommend the same treatment. We encourage everybody to give Christian and his family peace and privacy the following time,” he added.

“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 Denmark team in the next matches. Play for all of Denmark,” he added.

Denmark lost the opening game to Finland 0-1. It next takes on Belgium on Thursday, followed by Russia on Tuesday.
