The scenes from Copenhagen of Christian Eriksen collapsing during Denmark‘s match against Finland caused fear amongst all football fans, but with the reports that the midfielder is improving, he received a message of support from Inter teammate Romelu Lukaku.
Lukaku opened the scoring in Belgium‘s 3-0 win over Russia on Saturday night, before adding a second late on, and he opted to dedicate it to Eriksen.
“Chris, Chris… I love you!” Lukaku yelled into the camera after scoring.
Lukaku and Eriksen have become good friends at Inter after years of competing against each other in the Premier League.
