Football rivalries mean nothing – Let’s pray for Christian Eriksen’s complete recovery

Today football means nothing

The biggest game in the world doesn’t mean anything today. The fans, the popularity, the entertainment, the fun are just mere words. Football has never come before a player’s life. Nor will it ever come before a player’s life.

Massive respect to Simon Kjær, the team’s centerback, who made sure that Eriksen didn’t swallow his tongue when he was unconscious, made sure he was in the correct position, got the squad to surround Eriksen so the media didn’t continue filming him and made sure Eriksen’s wife was comforted.

For some, heroes are the people who win countless number of matches in their career. For some, heroes are those people who have won plenty of individual trophies.

But the real heroes, who many people don’t talk about, are the ones who pull of amazing acts without even touching the ball. Today Kjær was the One. In the past there have been many, but sadly they are not talked about much.

Regardless of the quality of the players, every one of them is a Hero. These players wakes up early every day to train. They eat well. They train hard. They make countless sacrifices to reach where they have reached. And everything is done to perform good and entertain people all over the globe.

The supporters are always quick to criticize the players without having complete knowledge about the background of the players.

There is no doubt in the fact that Football is one of the most Beautiful Games in the world. Cheering them on their good days and making constructive criticism will only make this game even more beautiful.

Christian Eriksen is alive and stable. That’s the best result all the past European Championships combined together will ever witness! We are all One today! That’s what makes this game the most beautiful in this planet!

We also must say thanks to the medical staff. We condemn and blabber a lot sometimes. But they are, at the end of the day, the real HEROES. Not just today but every single passing day!

Even though I am an Arsenal fan, I won’t think twice about saying that Christian Eriksen was my Hero today❤

      Wishing Christian Ericksen a complete and speedy recovery; having watched the incident it was very concerning.
      HERO is an overused word, with regard to sports people and their performances. It is a word that should be reserved for those, who actually put their lives at risk to save others.
      Notwithstanding, congratulations and cudos to Simon Kjaer, who kept his head in the situation and intervened quickly to help a fellow player.

        Could not have put it any better ozziegunner.
        Huge relief that CE will be ok

    Some professionals and hobbyists died because of cardiac arrests and other injuries in football field. This is why they’re paid highly and have short careers

    1. Kev82 says:

      Antonio Puerta died aged just 22, Marc Vivien Foe 28 and Miklos Feher just 24 it’s very worrying.

      1. gotanidea says:

        1. Kev82 says:

    Not to be pedantic but you can’t swallow your tongue.

    1. Declan says:

      To be equally pedantic, you can!

  9. Sid says:

    So glad with the news that he is stable now! Hope he recovers completely.

  10. Declan says:

    Best wishes for good health and a full recovery to Eriksen.
    Big respect for Kjaer for his swift actions helping to save his friends life. Big disgust for the BBC showing the incident intrusively instead of cutting back to the studio.

    1. Sue says:

      👍👍

  11. Sean Williams says:

    I’m sure the power of deep wishes for Christian Erikson’s life threatening situation, from millions of people watching the game around the world, amazing on-pitch medical assistance and so many heartfelt wishes beaming at him, helped Christian yesterday. How amazing and fortunate that he is recovering. Great compassion for his wife, kids and teammates who may have feared the worst.

    1. Declan says:

      Very well put Sean 👏

    2. Yash Bisht says:

      YES!

  12. ozziegunner says:

    If one piece of good comes from this issue, it is the importance of every body getting training in CPR.
    You may well end up being the person who saves a life, rather than the one standing by uselessly watching someone die!
    The person you end up saving is usually someone very close to you.
