After the brilliant victory of the Danish national team over Russia, professional soccer player Christian Eriksen also congratulated his comrades.

The Danish national team thrilled the football world with their 4-1 win against Russia on Monday evening. That did not leave the Danish professional footballer Christian Eriksen (29), who has meanwhile been able to leave the hospital, indifferent. He congratulated his colleagues on reaching the last 16 and sent a lot of applause via Instagram.

He posted a photo in a story on his official Insta account by midfielder Mikkel Damsgaard (20), who scored the first of four goals in the 38th minute. The picture also shows the final score, six Danish flags and four applause emojis.

Christian Eriksen recovers at home

Christian Eriksen collapsed on the pitch in the first half of his team’s European Championship match against Finland on June 12th in Copenhagen and had to be resuscitated on the pitch after a cardiac arrest. He was then taken to a hospital.

The Danish Football Association (DBU) had communicated on June 18that Eriksen was no longer in the hospital after a successful operation. It had previously been confirmed that the athlete had been implanted with a defibrillator. The message also stated that Eriksen had visited the national team after his release and now wanted to relax at home with his family. It is not yet known whether the Inter Milan professional will be able to continue his career.
