Belgium and Denmark supported Christian Eriksen during the match that brought them together today, Thursday, at the “Parken Stadium” in Copenhagen, as part of the European Football Championship “Euro 2020”.
In the tenth minute of the match (which is the same number as Eriksen’s shirt), the players of both teams stopped playing and began to applaud amid a storm of encouragement from the fans on the stands, which raised many banners of support for Eriksen, the largest of which wrote: “All Denmark is with you, Christian.”
Eriksen is recovering in hospital, and will need a pacemaker implanted after falling and losing consciousness following a sudden heart attack in a snapshot that blew everyone’s sympathy, during his country’s first European Championship match against Finland last Saturday. Doubts swirl about his football future.
Before the start of the meeting, the Belgian national team presented Eriksen with a jersey for the Belgium national team in the name of Eriksen, with the number 10 on it showing the signatures of all the players of the Belgian team.
The match between the two teams in the second round of Group B competitions ended 2-1 in favor of Belgium.
The finals of the European Nations Cup “Euro 2020”, postponed for a whole year due to Corona, will be held between June 11 and next July 11 in 11 European cities for the first time in the history of the competition to celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of its launch, which are the cities: “Amsterdam, Baku, Seville, Bucharest.” Budapest, Copenhagen, Glasgow, London, Munich, Rome and Petersburg.
