Denmark playmaker, Christian Eriksen, sent a WhatsApp message to his teammates, telling them they had put on a “fantastic” display despite their 2-1 defeat to Belgium at Euro 2020.
Four days after Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest against Finland, the Danes returned to action in Group B on Thursday but still lost 2-1 to Belgium.
The Danes are still without a single point ahead of their final group game against Russia next Monday.
“Eriksen wrote in the WhatsApp group after the game and he said we had been fantastic,” Denmark forward Martin Braithwaite told reporters at his post-match press conference.
“I read the text on my way to the dressing room.”
He added: “We were playing for Christian and the whole country. We felt the whole stadium around us, it was amazing.”
