However, few persons on the pitch played vital role in its resuscitation.

Denmark’s captain @simonkjaer1989 ensured Eriksen didn't swallow his tongue when he was unconscious, gave him CPR, told the squad to form a protective shield around him, consoled Eriksen’s horrified wife & has now led his team back into the game. You, sir, are a hero. pic.twitter.com/ih3qJm1x7s

Whatever happens in #euro2020 there will be no more powerful image than this. A #DEN team united, protecting one of their own in his most desperate hour of need. This is what sport is all about and a reminder of what really matters in this world.
Stay strong Christian Eriksen. pic.twitter.com/jEx0rM7Iqz
