"We interrupted training especially," said midfielder Christian Nörgaard on Saturday about seeing Eriksen again.
“It was fantastic to see him.
And that with our own eyes - not just on a screen, ”said midfielder Andreas Skov Olsen from FC Bologna at a media round in the Danish European Championship district in Helsingör.
“It was great talking to him and hugging him.
And to see that he and his family are doing well so far. "
Eriksen met the teammates accompanied by his two sons, his partner and their mother.
“It was exactly what we all needed.
It was a feeling of love and joy.
Seeing him there with his family was great, ”said Nörgaard.
"That gives us a big boost before the Russia game".
The Danes will meet the Russians on Monday evening (9 p.m. / ARD and Magenta TV) in their last preliminary round game of the EM 2021 in Copenhagen. If they win this game by two goals and Finland lose to Belgium at the same time, the European champions from 1992 would surely move into the second round of the European Championship * as second in the group.
