Denmark Squad Get Surprise Package From Christian Eriksen

Christian Eriksen has paid a surprised visit to the Denmark team in the middle of a training session and then gave them all a hug, his teammates said Saturday.

The 29-year-old, who suffered a cardiac arrest during Denmark’s first Euro 2020 game against Finland last Saturday, was discharged from a Copenhagen hospital on Friday.

And immediately he went to see his teammates at their European Championship base camp outside the capital.

Midfielder Christian Norgaard and defender Joakim Maehle said it came as a big surprise.

“I didn’t know he was coming, so we stopped the training session when he arrived,” Norgaard said.

“He seemed to be in good spirits, and it gave a good energy to the team. We were allowed to give him a hug, and it was great to see him walk around with his son.”
