Football fans and commentators have expressed outrage over Christian Eriksen’s live coverage fall out during Denmark Euro 2020 clashed with Finland while praising his teammates for forming a wall to protect him from view.
Viewers watched with dismay as the cameras continued to rotate while medical professors performed chest compressions on the 29-year-old after the gunshot wound hit the ground 42 minutes after Saturday’s match at Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium.
Several blows, also through the legs of the players, showed Eriksen receiving treatment, before cutting off his clearly afflicted wife, who was on stage and was comforted by Danish captain Simon Kjaer and guard Kasper. Schmeichel.
Doctors worked on Eriksen for nearly 20 minutes before he was resuscitated and taken to the hospital.
UEFA, the tournament’s governing body, said the attacking midfielder was “in a stable situation”, while the Danish football federation said he was awake. The match resumes at 18:30 GMT.
While quickly flooding social media with prayers for Eriksen, many users have even slammed national television broadcasters for their coverage and praised Danish players.

I’m always shocked to hear what happened to Eriksen. It’s sad that UEFA still zoomed in with its cameras on it. We will not forget it! God, help him! 🙏🇩🇰 pic.twitter.com/YsU3kpmNhu

Wonderful to hear Christian Eriksen is awake. We hope it continues to improve.
His Danish teammates deserve the highest praise and respect.
They called for immediate medical attention, screened from the rooms, preserved their dignity and comforted their family.

You forget about the age of those boys who play football. A lot of them in their early 20s, the way they behaved today was nothing short of amazing.
Dignity, compassion is by all accounts heroic by Simon Kjaer.
Nothing any team does in this tournament will surpass them. 🇩🇰 pic.twitter.com/fuppJmCco3

I was in tears and I felt incredibly insane. Thinking of Eriksen’s partner I hadn’t seen him in tears at the camera. 🇩🇰

Do you notice how the Danish players have formed a protective circle to protect their teammate from the cameras? See how Eriksen’s destroyed wife was filmed?
The Danish team showed integrity and care for their friend and teammate.
The respect I have for them is incredibly strong. pic.twitter.com/0WUjoin3Z7

Great respect for the Danish players for protecting Eriksen from the Camera. You see some images that are already circulating which is the most disgusting thing.
Please do not share photos like that. Now he is aware according to various sources.

Disgusted that the camera filmed Eriksen’s wife in tears, doesn’t privacy seem to matter anymore? Just cut them in the studio as soon as they realize it’s an emergency, I hope it’s okay

The camera men will be away from the streakers but are happy to show Christian Eriksen’s wife crying on the side of the ground.

Good on Danish players for creating a wall around Christian Eriksen, blocking this terrible view from the cameras.
Prayers for Eriksen, scary scenes. # EURO2020

It’s literally ridiculous how players should regroup and block Eriksen’s life-threatening situation from greedy transmitters. It shouldn’t be like that. It should be common sense to cut out the cameras when something similar happens. Unreal. #DENFIN pic.twitter.com/6Fo6FCpU5g
