EURO: Kane’s Tribute For Eriksen

LONDON: Harry Kane paid a touching tribute to Christian Eriksen by handing over a signed England jersey.

The Three Lions captain handed over the jersey to Denmark captain Simon Kjaer before the semi-final between the two teams at Wembley.

Eriksen, 29, faced an anxious moment when he suffered a ‘cardiac arrest’ and collapsed in the middle of the field during Denmark’s opening match at Euro 2020 against Finland.

Denmark bounced back from the event with an outstanding performance and advanced to a historic semi -final for the team.

But their move to Euro 2020 came to a halt in the semi-finals when Kane’s goal in extra time saw England win 2-1 and were scheduled to meet Italy in the final.

The award given to England received loud cheers from all corners of the stadium.

Before the match, Kane, who played with Eriksen at Spurs, said: “I spoke to him after what happened and hoped he would recover quickly.

“She responded to the message quickly and said OK. I was like leaving her alone. It was an emotional event not only for her but also her family.”
