Eriksen: “I was dead for five minutes”

Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen spoke today about the cardiac arrest he suffered in the middle of his national team’s match, Denmark, against Finland for the Euro 2021, and his future goals. People saw it and cried in their homes or wherever they saw it, and they lived it completely. Regardless, I am fortunate to be here today and say thank you for the tears. But I’m still here. I was dead for five minutes,” Eriksen said in an interview with Danish public television DR. He added: “It was so nice, and I have been helped by so many good wishes that have come to me in this time. Even now there are people who keep writing to me.” My goal is to play in the World Cup in Qatar. That’s been my mindset from the beginning. Whether I will be elected is something else, but my dream is to come back. So until then I’m going to play and show that I’m at the same level,” the midfielder said. It should be noted that Eriksen is currently without a club having terminated his contract with Inter Milan, because in Italian football it is not allowed to use the implantable cardioverter-defibrillator, a device that was implanted in the player.
