Hopeful messages are shared in Italy as well. Giuseppe Marotta, director of Eriksen’s club Internazionale, tells Sky Sport that he had contact with the Danes‘ medical staff and that there is ‘cause for optimism‘ about the situation.
Just before rest, Denmark’s attacking midfielder collapsed and had to be resuscitated. After a minute of treatment, Eriksen was worn off the field, protected by team mates.
