A giant Christian Eriksen shirt was unveiled on the pitch ahead of kick-off today as Denmark take on Belgium at Euro 2020.
This follows Eriksen collapsing and suffering a cardiac arrest in the opening game of the tournament against Finland, which left the footballing world shell-shocked.
Thankfully, the Inter Milan star is now recovering well in hospital, but it’s nice to see this tribute to him ahead of what will no doubt be an emotional game for his team-mates…
