Romelu Lukaku was clearly emotional yesterday as he paid tribute to his Inter Milan team-mate Christian Eriksen.
Eriksen collapsed during Denmark’s opening game at Euro 2020 with what looked an extremely serious medical problem that almost led to the game being called off.
Thankfully, more recent updates suggest Eriksen is stable after this disturbing incident, and Lukaku was quick to pay tribute to his club colleague after scoring twice for Belgium in their win over Russia…
"I cried a lot because I was scared."
