Scotland captain Andy Robertson said Denmark players were “heroes” for shielding Christian Eriksen from the crowd and cameras when he received CPR on the pitch after suffering a cardiac arrest during the Euro 2020 match against Finland.

Eriksen collapsed suddenly in the 42nd minute of Saturday’s match while running near the left touchline after a throw-in. He was later rushed to the hospital.

“The way the Danish players dealt with what must have been a heart-breaking thing for all of them, they stood up to it,” Robertson said.

“That will be the picture I remember and everyone should remember because, when one of their friends was in a bad place, they stood up and protected him.

“Whatever else happens in this tournament, for me they will be the heroes.”
