The match between Denmark and Belgium, Thursday evening, in the European Nations Cup “Euro 2020” will be on a date with an exceptional event due to Christian Eriksen.
Eriksen had kidnapped the world’s sympathy after he feared his fall and stopped his heartbeat during his country’s match against Denmark last Saturday against Finland in the first round of the second group of the Euro 2020.
Although Eriksen has recovered from his health crisis, he is still in the hospital to attend more medical tests, which prompted his colleague at Inter, Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku, to reveal an intention to honor him in his country’s match against Denmark, Thursday evening.
Belgium players prepared a special tribute to Eriksen before the match. Lukaku did not reveal his details, but he will participate in a round of applause for Eriksen during the match at the “Parken” stadium in the Danish capital, “Copenhagen”.
Lukaku said in a press statement: “In the tenth minute, we will take the ball out of the field and a period of applause will begin.”
He added: “It’s a small gesture of support, it’s the least we can do because there are many players in our squad who know him personally.”
And he added: “However, we will play to win against Denmark, it is the main task, there is no room for emotions at this level, Denmark is a very strong team and now has additional motivation, we will not underestimate them.”
In a related context, Lukaku wants to use his presence in Denmark to visit Christian Eriksen in the hospital.
And about that, Lukaku says: “I already sent him a supportive message on the air and he assured us that he was fine, I already asked the coach to visit him in the hospital, I will wait to see if that is possible.
It is noteworthy that Lukaku, who is known as the “tank” due to his physical and scoring abilities, is the top scorer in the Euro 2020 championship with two goals, equal with Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo and Czech Patrick Schick, along with Italian duo, Ciro Immobile and Manuel Locatelli.
