Eriksen Defies Odds In Grand Euro 2024 Comeback

Eriksen Defies Odds In Grand Euro 2024 Comeback
Jun 17 2024 Share

Christian Eriksen scored Denmark’s opening goal against Slovenia at Euro 2024, a moment of particular significance given his collapse from cardiac arrest during Euro 2020.

Three years ago, Eriksen’s life was saved on the pitch after he collapsed during Denmark’s match against Finland. Following the incident, he received an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD), which prevents fatal cardiac arrests.

Eriksen’s goal against Slovenia came 1,100 days after his cardiac arrest. He skillfully took Jonas Wind’s back-heel on his chest before volleying into the bottom corner, celebrating with a wide grin—a stark contrast to the distressing scenes in 2020, when his teammates shielded him from view as he received life-saving treatment.

After his recovery, Eriksen resumed his career, moving from Inter Milan to Brentford and then to Manchester United. Reflecting on his experience, Eriksen shared, “Even after a bad time, there’s always a time after where everything will be different. It’s just going to go up and down – time is your best friend.”

Despite Eriksen’s inspiring goal, Denmark drew 1-1 with Slovenia, as Erik Janža’s deflected shot equalized in the 77th minute of the Group C game.

There’s still hope from the Austrian’s however, with midfielder Christoph Baumgartner anticipating the match and their opening opponents as the toughest team they could have faced in an opening game.

“But I believe that if we get off to a good start, if we do what we’ve been doing over the last few weeks and months, then anything is possible in this match. But, of course, we have to play at the top of our game – there’s no question about that – if we want to have a real chance of competing.”
