England Gift Signed Christian Eriksen Shirt To Denmark

The Three Lions paid tribute to Christian Eriksen by presenting Danish captain Simon Kjaer with an England shirt with Eriksen's name on the back.

The jersey was also signed by the entire England team.

During the official coin toss ahead of the Euro 2020 semi-final clash, Three Lions skipper Harry Kane was seen passing the shirt over to his opposite number before posing for photographs.

The heartwarming gesture was met with a huge round of applause from both sets of fans inside Wembley Stadium.

"I spoke to him after what happened and wished him well," Eriksen's former Tottenham teammate Kane told talkSPORT before the game.

"He sent me a quick message back to say he's OK.

"I kind of left him alone. It's been an emotional rollercoaster for not just him but also his family.

"I'm sure he'll be cheering against me on Wednesday, and rightly so.

We know that it has united Denmark as a team and pushed them on.

"We must focus on ourselves."

Shockwaves were sent around the football world when Danish fan favourite Eriksen collapsed during his side's opening match of Euro 2020 against Finland.

Spectators, coaches, players and even fans watching from home held the collective breath as the Inter Milan star was given life-saving CPR by medical staff on the pitch.

The scenes were pretty confronting with Eriksen's teammates looking visibly shaken after witnessing the awful incident - the scene with his distressed wife looking over was particularly hard to watch.

Thankfully Eriksen was eventually resuscitated with doctors later confirming he had suffered a sudden cardiac arrest despite no prior medical history.

He is now on the mend and has since been pictured outside of hospital.
