England captain Harry Kane has revealed he has been in contact with Christian Eriksen following the Dane’s cardiac arrest.

Harry Kane has wished former Tottenham teammate Christian Eriksen well ahead of England’s showdown with Denmark in Euro 2020.

Of course, Eriksen won’t be available for the clash as he continues his recovery from a cardiac arrest. The midfielder collapsed in Denmark’s Euro 2020 opener against Finland last month. He has since been fitted with an ICD heart-starting device and is now with his family in Odense, Denmark.

The Inter Milan star, though, was pictured in public for the first time since the ordeal last week and appeared to be in good spirits.

“I spoke to him after what happened to him and wished him well. He sent me a quick message back to say he’s okay,” Kane told talkSPORT.

“I kind of left him alone. It’s been an emotional rollercoaster for not just him but his family as well.

“I’m sure he’ll be cheering against me on Wednesday, and rightly so. He will back his country all the way.

“We know that it has united Denmark as a team and pushed them to be where they are now. We can’t focus too much on that. We have to focus on ourselves and what we can do.

“Whatever happens, I hope to see to Chris soon and be in contact with him soon. The most important thing is he’s well.”

According to the Mirror, the England national team plan to make a tribute to Eriksen before Wednesday’s Euro 2020 semi-final clash with Denmark at Wembley. Kane will reportedly make a shirt presentation at Wembley in honor of his former Spurs teammate.
