UEFA has invited Christian Eriksen, his wife, and the six paramedics who saved his life to the final of Euro 2020 at Wembley on Sunday July 11.
Recall the Denmark football star collapsed on the pitch during his side’s opening group game against Finland last month and was resuscitated by paramedics. CPR was administered and his heart was restarted with a defibrillator as players shielded the medics.
UEFA said Eriksen, his wife and six medics were invited to the final, but there was no confirmation he would attend.
One of the paramedics, Peder Ersgaard, said he was honoured to receive a VIP invite from UEFA boss Aleksander Ceferin.
“I’m excited, like a child on Christmas Eve,” he told the Fagbladet FOA magazine.
“I’m very proud of my efforts, but also of the whole team. It wasn’t a one-man effort.”
There is no confirmation on whether Eriksen will be in London yet as he is recovery at home.
Eriksen’s agent Martin Schoots told Sportsmail: ‘Christian still feels part of this group. Denmark is a small country — the bonds between players are very tight.’
