Christian Eriksen says he “feels good” as the Denmark international posted a positive update after collapsing in the Euro 2020 game against Finland on Saturday.
The Inter Milan midfielder had to be resuscitated on the pitch before being transported to hospital for further treatment.
Eriksen, 29, says he feels “good – under the circumstances” as investigations into his collapse continue.
He posted a photo of himself smiling and giving a thumbs-up gesture on Tuesday morning on his official Instagram account, along with a thank-you message.
Eriksen said: “Hello everyone. Many thanks for your sweet and amazing greetings and messages from all over the world. It means a lot to me and my family. ♥ ️🙏
“I’m fine – under the circumstances. I still have to take tests in the hospital, but I feel good.
“Now I will be cheering on the boys from the Danish team in the next matches. Play for all of Denmark
The Danish team doctor confirmed that Eriksen suffered cardiac arrest and “left” before being resuscitated by the medical team.
Jose Mourinho, who managed Eriksen at Tottenham for nearly three months before the player left for Italy in January 2020, opened to talkSPORT about his reaction to the shocking incident, revealing he had prayed and cried for the midfielder.
He revealed that we have to salute his survival and the way football has come together to show support for the Dane.
The game finally resumed later on Saturday night, with Finland winning 1-0.
