Finnish fans wish Christian Eriksen quick recovery

 Finland’s Euro 2020 win celebration was tinged with sadness on Saturday (June 12) after Denmark’s Christian Eriksen was rushed to hospital after collapsing during the match.

Gathered in a rainy beer garden, scores of fans remained till the end of the match to see Finland win 1-0 with their only goal attempt of the match.

“Everybody in Finland has been waiting. They say that we’re an ice-hockey country but what’s the feeling here and in the country I believe this, everybody remembers all the drama today – Christian Eriksen – I think everybody feels for him today and his family hoping that he will recover. He’s a great football player but this is a big moment for Finland, for everybody in Finland,” beer garden employee Jani said.

Eriksen was rushed to hospital, after collapsing suddenly in the 42nd minute of the match, where he regained consciousness.

The game was initially suspended but resumed an hour and 45 minutes later, Finland claiming a victory when striker Joel Pohjanpalo headed in on the hour with his side’s only attempt of the game.
