“At these times, the unity of the football family is so strong and he and his family carry with them the good wishes and prayers of everyone. I heard of fans of both teams chanting his name. Football is beautiful and Christian plays it beautifully.”
Referee Anthony Taylor had immediately called for medical support and Eriksen received CPR before the players were taken off the pitch and the match was initially postponed.
