Danish national team doctor Morten Boesen did not guarantee that Christian Eriksen Play football again after the cardiac arrest suffered by the footballer on June 12 during the Euro 2020 match. Boesen admitted the final decision will be made by the footballer with his family.
“After the current medical examinations, if he feels comfortable, it depends on him and his family,” said the medical adviser during a videoconference promoted by the Portuguese league. Boesen recalled that Eriksen had been clinically dead for a few seconds and that it was a “very traumatic” scene.
In the middle of Inter Milan an implantable cardioverting defibrillator (ICD) was placed, this being “necessary after having suffered a heart attack due to cardiac arrhythmias”, according to the Danish federation.

The head of the Copenhagen clinical department also ensured that the medical situations at the European Championship “worked very well”, but, at the same time, he did not want to forget to comment that such a quality of service is impossible to occur in leagues or amateur championships. “The side effects in Denmark have been huge. A large number of volunteers participate in courses related to the prevention and relief of heart disease, ”he said.
In particular, Christian Eriksen has not competed since that event against Finland.
