England make it compulsory for players to undergo ECG tests after Eriksen incident

The England FA has made it compulsory for players to undergo ECG tests to prevent cardiac arrests from happening like with Christian Eriksen a few days ago. 

A source reported: ‘All England medical staff also have the highest standard of medical equipment with them pitchside to quickly and efficiently manage incidents.

‘They’re ready to react quickly and effectively should the worst kind of incident occur, both in a match and training scenarios.

‘It’s an issue which is taken incredibly seriously in the light of what happened to both Fabrice and Christian. No chances are taken.’

Denmark’s doctor, Martin Boesen confirmed that Eriksen had stopped responding when they got onto the field in a press conference:

‘He was gone,’ said Boesen. ‘We did cardiac resuscitation, it was cardiac arrest. How close were we? I don’t know. We got him back after one defib so that’s quite fast. We don’t have an explanation why it happened.’

Denmark’s players were in tears as they formed a protective ring around Eriksen as the medical staff attempted to give him CPR and used a defibrillator to revive him. 

Eriksen is currently stable and is recovering at a hospital. The game against Finland was his 66th game of the season, and no player has made more appearances this season than the Danish midfielder. The organising bodies have attracted a lot of heat due to the hectic schedules taking a toll on player’s bodies. And the situation with Eriksen was a tipping point to illustrate that point if the numerous injuries throughout the season weren’t enough.
