Danish players make serious allegations against Uefa
Despite Christian Eriksen’s cardiac arrest, the game between Denmark and Finland (0-1) continued on Saturday after a long break. So far it has been said that the Danish players made this decision of their own free will. That was obviously not the way they said on Monday in a media round on the record. The European football association Uefa gave them only two options.
Striker Martin Braithwaite (30) said: “Neither option was good. We took the least bad. ”Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel criticized:“ We were brought into a situation that I personally don’t think is fair. One should have waited to make a decision. I hope that Uefa learn something from this. “
Coach Kasper Hjulmand (photo) explained: “We had two options: to continue the game or to play the next day at 12 noon. But everyone wanted to keep playing. The players were sure that they could no longer sleep. Playing the day after would have made the situation even more difficult. It was the wrong decision, and a hard one, to let the players choose between these two things: to play the same evening or the next day. “
According to the Danish news portal “BT”, the players and the entire Danish team have received crisis aid and now want to continue for their teammates. Bayern professional Pierre-Emile Höjbjerg (25): “We will play for Christian and for everyone who supported us.”
