Watch Romelu Lukaku score for Belgium against Russia and dedicate goal to Inter Milan team-mate Christian Eriksen

June 12, 2021

ROMELU LUKAKU made an emotional call out to Christian Eriksen after scoring Belgium's first goal of Euro 2020.

The Inter Milan midfielder collapsed in shocking scenes during Denmark's game with Finland and received a strong message of support from his club team-mate.

Lukaku, 28, took advantage of slack Russian defending to swivel and fire Belgium in front during Saturday's clash in Saint Petersburg.

Heading straight to the nearest television camera, the striker sent a message to Eriksen while he recovers in hospital.

He said: "Chris, Chris… I send you: I love you."

Both Eriksen and Lukaku joined Inter during the 2019-20 season and starred in the club's recent Serie A title win.

And they were drawn to compete in the same Euros group with Denmark and Belgium due to face off in Copenhagen on Thursday.

The Danes suffered a 1-0 defeat after their opener versus Finland was staggeringly completed following Eriksen's collapse.


The 29-year-old received treatment, including CPR, as his team-mates formed a human barrier to allow medics to work away from the eyes of the camera and fans in the stadium.

Taken to hospital, Uefa soon confirmed he had stabilised and was awake.

Denmark players agreed to see out the game while Belgium's match went ahead as planned.

The football world united to send its best wishes to Eriksen, particularly during the initial horrendously nervous wait for news on his condition.
