NFT: Euro 2020 starts today!

Bobby Humphrey's Earpad : 6/11/2021 9:37 am
A year later, the Euros gets underway with Italy v Turkey. Always has been my favorite tournament even with the expanded format.

Although France are heavy favorites, I think with the amount of soccer played these last 14 months that players are tired and any team can get hot and make a run.

Clear penalty for handball

Not given.
That first..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 6/11/2021 6:58 pm : link
match was a dud. Turkey looked like they wanted a 0-0 draw and then after they conceded, they looked like they wanted to be home.
Caught some of the Italy match...

I don't why but I was surprised to still old Chiellini on the pitch for Italy. Still doing his thing...

Christian Eriksen collapsed on the pitch  
Bobby Humphrey's Earpad : 6/12/2021 12:57 pm : link
horrible scenes in Copenhagen. He is leaving the pitch now on a stretcher. don't know if they will continue the game.
He went down  
Fast Eddie : 6/12/2021 1:02 pm : link
Like he was shot. Just terrible scene. Cpr for it seemed like forever. Praying for his recovery

Match suspended. Prayers for Eriksen, his family, and Koldegaard, our Danish Giants fan. It was horrible. Fans and players were crying. Eriksen's wife was brought on the pitch, and it was reported that medics had to perform CPR

Just saw it. Tragic.

Let's hope good news is on the way...

UEFA puts out an update  
dpinzow : 6/12/2021 1:29 pm : link
...
Eriksen reportedly stabilized in hospital - ( New Window )
BHE  
ColHowPepper : 6/12/2021 1:30 pm : link
Came on to EUROs thread late, saw your post, immediately went to ESPN, been watching ~half hour. It seems clear that ESPN Production (or UEFA?) has made an executive decision thus far not to air the 90 seconds prior to Eriksen receiving the throw-in (no contact).

Thoughts on that decision? Respect and reverence for the player and his teammates and Finland team, yes. Does the decision not to air seem right to you?
I'm glad they didn't re-air it because it was innocuous yet scary  
Bobby Humphrey's Earpad : 6/12/2021 1:37 pm : link
He stumbled and collapsed face first and the players immediately called for medical support. I rewound the DVR and he was out. Nothing to be gained but to alarm people.
Yet, with the initial UEFA update  
ColHowPepper : 6/12/2021 1:44 pm : link
that Eriksen is at hospital, 'stabilized' and 'awake', there is a competing demand to understand the circumstances and the event. For me as a fan, and who has had a daughter collapse in seizure on the field (most horrifying day of my life) due to impact, I still want to know, want to see, it helps me connect better, more viscerally to the event--always liked and have had the greatest respect for and appreciation of Eriksen's play--than listening to these talking heads simply gain time on air. I get there are competing perspectives.

Denmark and Finland will resume their match

This is very surprising
It’s not like there’s not outlets to see it if you really want.  
Zeke's Alibi : 6/12/2021 2:32 pm : link
I just watched it.

Good thing it didn’t happen in CONCACAF, certainly could have had a boy who cried wolf situation as precious moments to restabilize ticked away.

Sounds like they completely bungled the declaration of death on that one. If it was accurate he would have been brain dead.

Ahh... makes sense. Thank you

ColHowPepper : 6/12/2021 5:49 pm : link
having seen Finland's fans on one side of the Stadium in Copenhagen chanting 'Christiaan' in unison, answered by the Denmark fans on the other side 'Eriksen', over and over, his first and last names reverberating through the Stadium, when my wife came in (she was aware of his collapse) and I recited those moments, broke out in tears, sentimental schmuck that I am.

I thought Erfo (know I have the name wrong, a Nigerian who played in EPL with Sheffield United), on one of the endless panels commenting on whether UEFA should have suspended play until Sunday, should have canceled, should have left the decision to the FAs of Denmark and Finland, was very articulate. He said, about a somewhat analogous situation when a teammate went down and the decision was made to continue the game the following day, that it was worse for his team SUFC, completely flat, having gone home and having the gravity of the injury to their teammate, rendered them less ready to play after 24 hours.

Twellman did not strike me that way. He speaks quickly and pretty articulately, and he referred early on this afternoon, before Eriksen's condition was known to have stabilized, to his 'well known' concussion issues, hard not to be emotional about things like that.
Eriksen's wobble and collapse  
ColHowPepper : 6/13/2021 10:22 am : link
Strikes me this AM as I was driving to pick up some fruit and veggies that Eriksen must have suffered a stroke of some kind. Have not been doing any reading on footie web sites or otherwise, but it would explain the appearance of sudden onset of lack of coordination and then complete loss of motor control. CPR and O2 delivery probably saved his life and, hopefully, him from serious CNS damage due to lack of oxygen.

Del Shofner : 6/13/2021 4:01 pm : link
Heart attack, I read. They were literally keeping him alive with the CPR on the field.

Netherlands-Ukraine with a well-played first half. Several good chances for the Dutch but the Ukrainian keeper is very good.
Just as I was to remark on the Ukrainian goal keeper keeping them in

Another round of interesting..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 6/14/2021 8:58 am : link
games today. Scotland makes their first appearance in over 20 years against the Czechs, Poland and Lewandowski take on Slovakia and Spain plays an always technically sound Swedish team.

Been a really fun watch so far - except for the scary incident with Christian E.

This will also provide a glimpse on whether or not spain is fading or can still be a contender.
A beautiful..

Guy looked like he was just going to hold the ball until it was stolen, then he nutmegs the defender, drives to goal and puts it off the post into the keeper.
that's some start to the 2H

I think Spain finishes 1-0 or 2-0, don’t think Sweden bothers to push too much even if they go down a goal. No reason to leave this one with a lopsided defeat.
Spain looks frustrated and checked out.

Olson GK fantastic, the difference in the match, superb positioning and reaction, terrific saves
Isak bit of a revelation to me, rare someone so long has such precise footie skills
Jordy Alba, terrific crosses, so much space to operate
Olmo!!

Right side of Swedish back line giving Jordy Alba all the space he wanted
Berg whiffed, Lustig whiffed arf arf
Swedish coach, hated his strategy, but it got his country a point, difficult to fault him
