UEFA has invited Christian Eriksen, his wife, and the six paramedics who saved his life to the final of Euro 2020 at Wembley on Sunday July 11.
Recall that after his collapse on the pitch during his side’s opening group game against Finland last month,
his resuscitation was by paramedics. Administration of CPR was done to him, restarting his heart with a defibrillator as players shield the medics.
UEFA said Christian Eriksen, his wife and six medics were invited to the final, but there was no confirmation he would attend.
One of the paramedics, Peder Ersgaard, said it is with great honor he receives a VIP invite from
UEFA boss Aleksander Ceferin.
“I’m excited, like a child on Christmas Eve,” he told the Fagbladet FOA magazine.
“I’m very proud of my efforts, but also of the whole team. It wasn’t a one-man effort.”
There is no confirmation on whether Eriksen will be in London yet as he is recovering at home.
Eriksen’s agent Martin Schoots stated: ‘Christian still feels part of this group. Denmark is a small country — the bonds between players are very tight.’
So, Christian Eriksen, his wife and the six medics who saved his life are invited to Wembley to watch
Euro 2020 final by UEFA
