CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN is a Danish professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Serie A club Inter Milan and the Danish national team.
On June 12, 2021, Eriksen randomly collapsed on the field in a Euro 2021 opener game, to the distress of his wife, fans, and teammates.

Who is Sabrina Kvist?
Born in the town of Tommerup in Denmark, Sabrina currently lives in London with Eriksen.
A trained hairdresser, she prefers to keep a low profile and isn’t one to hog the public limelight.
Sabrina originally stayed on the continent to complete her hairdressing education whilst Eriksen earned his stripes with Spurs, before moving to England where she worked for a clothing company.
The pair bought a house in Hampstead back in 2016, as the former Tottenham midfielder emerged as one of Europe’s leading playmakers.
But the great Dane admitted that he’d found it hard to adjust to life in London and moved to Inter Milan.

He said in 2016: “You have to learn how to cope physically and mentally, but I can handle the pressure and the demands because I live seven days a week for my job.
“That is very tough for my girlfriend. Of course, I would like to go out in the city with her and friends, but it just doesn’t fit in with playing in England.”
What happened to Christian Eriksen in the Denmark vs Finland Euro 2021 game?
Christian Eriksen collapsed in the 43rd minute during Denmark’s Euro 2021 opener with Finland.
The shocking scenes happened towards the end of the first half of the teams’ opening match.
It’s unclear what caused Eriksen to randomly collapse.
His distraught teammates formed a circle around the Inter Milan ace, with some in tears.
UEFA announced the Group B match has been suspended due to a “medical emergency.”
The stadium announcer told fans that the game had been suspended due to a medical emergency and to stay in their seats.
Sabrina Kvist Jensen was seen in tears and being consoled by Danish players after she rushed down to the pitch.
A UEFA Euro 2020 spokesman has tweeted that Eriksen was rushed to hospital and “has been stabilized”.

How long has she been with Christian Eriksen?
One of football’s quieter couples, the pair like to keep their private life behind closed doors.
Neither are often seen out in the hustle-bustle of London life and instead prefer quieter meals with friends.
They began dating in 2012 and have now been together almost seven years.
Do the pair have children?
Eriksen announced in December 2017 that he and Sabrina were to have their first child.
He put the news to his 1.5m Instagram followers, posting: ““Mum & Dad to be ❤️ #proud #2018”
And the Danish star was granted leave from the World Cup squad to travel back for the birth of his first son in June 2018.
He celebrated the news with a goal upon his return, netting against Mexico in a World Cup warm-up.
