Time stopped, and time passed, as a nation saw itself caught in a state of shock and disbelief on Saturday night, witnessing Christian Eriksen fight for his life. Luckily, the best Danish player in the 21st century is still alive after his sudden cardiac arrest in the 43rd minute of Denmarks Euro 2020 opener against Finland.

We will all remember those images for the rest of our lives, says John Sivebaek, who was part of the Danish team that sensationally won the European Championship in 1992.

When seeing Eriksens collapse on TV, Sivebaek was himself reminded of his own past: When preparing his move to Manchester United in 1985, the medical examination detected a leaky heart valve. His condition was monitored throughout his career, and finally, in 2012, he went through an operation.

It was tough for me back then, psychologically.
