Football fans were shocked by the live footage of Eriksen’s collapse Euro2020 news


Viewers crash into TV channels to approach Eriksen after his collapse on the field of play and also show his troubled wife.

Football fans and commentators have expressed their outrage over the live broadcast of Christian Eriksen collapse during Denmark’s Euro 2020 clash with Finland, while praising his teammates for forming a wall to protect him from view.

Television viewers were appalled that the cameras continued to roll while medical professionals performed chest compressions on the 29-year-old boy after he suddenly fell on the pitch 42 minutes into Saturday’s match at Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium.

Several shots, even through the players’ legs, showed Eriksen receiving treatment, before turning to his clearly distressed wife, who was in the stadium and was comforted by Danish captain Simon Kjaer and the goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

Doctors worked in Eriksen for nearly 20 minutes before being resuscitated and taken to hospital.

UEFA, the governing body of the tournament, said the attacking midfielder was “in stable condition”, while the Danish football federation said he was awake. The match resumed at 18:30 GMT.

While quickly flooding social media with prayers for Eriksen, many users also criticized national television for its coverage and applauded Danish players.
