In a pre-match press conference, he said: “Corona allows you to postpone a match for 48 hours. A cardiac arrest obviously does not. That, I think, is wrong.
“It is indisputable that we were given two options by Uefa. I was there. I know. I felt that we and the players were put under pressure.
“And it was very, very clear. It was by no means us who came to Uefa and said we wanted to play on. It's the truth. I know.”
Eriksen’s shocking collapse forced UEFA to suspend the game on Saturday before it was restarted later in the day. The organization insisted that the players of both teams had mutually agreed to restart it – but Danish players have made it clear that wasn’t the case.
UEFA reportedly gave them the option of either finishing the game that day itself or forfeit the game – which would’ve seen Denmark handed a 0-3 loss. Denmark will hope to put their horrors behind them and come back strongly in their game against Belgium on Thursday.
