The image of Christian Eriksen collapsing in the game between Denmark and Finland continues to cause stupor around the world. To the relief of all, the Inter Milan player is stable and hospitalized, where they're carrying out studies to see how his health's.

 

There were hundreds of expressions of affection that Eriksen received for other players, whether they were teammates at Inter Milan as well as from other teams. And in Belgium's 3-0 win over Russia, Romelu Lukaku not only had a stellar performance scoring two goals, but also made a huge gesture to support his friend Eriksen.

What did he do? The 28-year-old attacker scored Belgium 1-0 over Russia in the 9th minute of play, he ran towards the camera of the official broadcast and shouted: “Chris, stay strong, I love you!”. In a few minutes, the image swept the planet.

 

 

Lukaku arrived at Inter Milan in mid-2019 after his stay at Manchester United. Six months later, the Italian club bought Eriksen's pass from Tottenham in England and since then they have shared the Neroazurro squad. Both were key pieces of the team that this year conquered the Scudetto after ten dry seasons. The Belgian attacker was present in 36 of the 38 duels of the team and scored 24 goals; the Dane played 26 games and yelled 3 scores.
