‘This time my story very different’


Share post:

Christian Eriksen said he had nothing other than football on his mind after scoring in Denmark’s 1-1 draw with Slovenia at Euro 2024 almost three years to the day since he suffered a cardiac arrest.

Eriksen put Denmark ahead in the first half of their Group C opener in Stuttgart on Sunday as the Manchester United midfielder scored his first European Championship goal at his third tournament. He featured at Euro 2012 and again at the Covid-delayed 2020 edition, where he collapsed during Denmark’s opening 1-0 loss to Finland and was resuscitated on the pitch with the aid of a defibrillator. 

Eriksen, now 32, has said that fateful day in Copenhagen is one on which he no longer dwells too much. “I do think this time my story at the Euros is very different from the last one,” he said. “Luckily it’s been a lot of games since it happened. I felt confident in playing again, so I was just happy to be back playing.”
