Eriksen

Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen was “gone” before he was resuscitated after suffering a cardiac arrest, the team’s doctor Morten Boesen said in a news conference on Sunday.

Eriksen was taken to a hospital in Copenhagen on Saturday after he collapsed on the pitch during Denmark’s Euro 2020 opener against Finland.

“He was gone, and we did cardiac resuscitation. It was a cardiac arrest,” Boesen said. “How close were we [to losing Eriksen]? I don’t know.

“We got him back after one defibrillator, so that’s quite fast. I’m not a cardiologist, so the details I will leave to the experts at the hospital.”

Italy scored three second-half goals at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome to take all three points, and Mancini was satisfied with the performance.

“We put in a good performance. We were unable to get a goal in the first half, it wasn’t easy, as it was the debut and Turkey are a very good team,” Mancini told Rai Sport.
