We should have not played - Denmark head coach

Sun 13 June 2021 | 15:10

Denmark head coach Kasper Hjulmand believes they should have taken more time to process what happened to Christian Eriksen.

The head coach admitted that his side was "wrong" to resume their match against Finland on the same day after the midfielder's incident.

Yesterday during Denmark's opener against Finland, Christian Eriksen suffered a heart attack at the end of the first half and fell to the ground. As a result, the game was suspended for two hours but was eventually resumed by the players' decision.

Denmark lost 1-0 courtesy of Joel Pohjanpalo's 59th-minute header for Finland, who were making their first-ever show at the European Championship.

"I think it was the wrong decision to make between the two scenarios,"

the Denmark boss told a press conference

. "It was very tough for the players. They didn't even know if they could probably lose their best friend.

"I have the feeling that we shouldn't have played and wrong that the players had to decide. I'm really proud of the way the world reacted to this incident.

"It's often about money, but yesterday we saw what football is all about - compassion and love."
