Soccer world supports Christian Eriksen over Twitter after collapse
Christian Eriksen’s collapse on the pitch during the European Championship match between his Denmark squad and Finland on Saturday captured attention around the world.
Eriksen collapsed before halftime of the match and was given CPR. He was carried away on a stretcher, though he was able to raise an arm and give a good sign. UEFA later said that Eriksen was taken to the hospital and stabilized.
Before all that positive news regarding Eriksen’s health emerged, there was great concern about his status. He received support via statements issued throughout Twitter.
