Euro 2020 Player Of The Tournament Front-Runner: Denmark’s Simon Kjær:

Following Christian Eriksen’s collapse due to cardiac arrest in Denmark’s Euro 2020 opener against Finland, Danish captain Simon Kjr has received worldwide praise for his conduct. Kjr was one of the first to recognize the gravity of the situation, sprinting half-heartedly toward Finland’s corner flag before stabilizing Eriksen on his side, clearing his airways, and commencing CPR before medical help came. Kjr then formed a protective circle with Thomas Delaney to achieve “ideal” operating circumstances, according to team doctor Morten Boesen. Kjr may be seen comforting Sabrina Kvist, Eriksen’s partner and mother of their two children, from that vantage point. It’s still a challenging but compelling image to look at.
