Denmark playmaker Christian Eriksen, who is recovering from a heart attack suffered during his team’s first match in the European Cup 2020, received an invitation to attend the final match of the continental championship scheduled for Sunday at Wembley Stadium in London, which his country may be a party to if he succeeds in overtaking England in Semi-finals tomorrow.
“Ericsen and his wife were invited by the president (Slovenian Aleksandar Ceferin). We don’t know if they can come or prefer to rest,” a UEFA spokesman told AFP.
Eresken had fallen unconscious in his team’s opening match against Finland, before the medical staff of the Danish team rushed to provide first aid and keep him alive before he was transferred to a hospital in Copenhagen, where he underwent a series of examinations, after which it was found that he had a severe heart attack that would have killed him had it not been for the rapid intervention the doctors. A few days later, a pacemaker was installed in Eriksen’s body.
The device sends electrical impulses when the heart rate is too slow, to avoid cardiac arrest. In addition to this function, it can also handle very fast heartbeats.
