• I didn’t even know Euro Cup was happening. I live in an Italian and Portuguese neighbourhood and haven’t seen one flag yet. Normally is wild. I guess it’s cause we’re still locked down.

  • The euphoria is very low Belgium also compared to previous tournaments. It's just not on people's minds right now I think. Maybe it's not a good idea to do this during a pandemic.

  • I think it's also the return to "normality" feeling somewhat unreal. Maybe this kind of event helps.

    Good luck to Finland, I'm watching the game right now.

  • Oh my fucking god what's happening?

  • I think I'm in shock right now. I think lots of people are. A horrible feeling. Unimaginable.

  • I'm in tears

  • -_- ......

  • He seems to be awake, but this is still very scary:

  • For those who weren't watching, Danish player Christian Eriksen collapsed on the field near the end of the first half against Finland. Medics were shown administering defibrillator shocks and chest compressions. It was a long time before he got stretchered off.

  • Jebus good to know! I decided to have an edible and chill watching a game, totally not the experience I was seeking.

  • The match is currently suspended. This is made all the worse by being played in Copenhagen with a large crowd. His wife was shown crying on the sidelines.

  • "Following the medical emergency involving Denmark’s player Christian Eriksen, a crisis meeting has taken place with both teams and match officials and further information will be communicated at 19:45 CET.

    The player has been transferred to the hospital and has been stabilised."

  • Probably a career ending event. 29 years that's fucked up. Relieved to know he's relatively safe.

  • The game will restart in 30m

  • @sentinel-beach said in Sports?:

    UEFA EURO 2020 starts tomorrow on Friday! And Finland is IN! For the first time ever. A month worth of football ahead of us, man this is sweet. :)

    A big congrats to Finland on the win, though under unfortunate circumstances.

  • Thank you! Those were unforgettable three and a half hours. Both in a devastating way and in a thrilling way. The rollercoaster of emotions. The shock of seeing someone fighting for their live suddenly in front of you. I was paralyzed. Thank God he pulled it through. Then they suddenly decide to finish the game and I'm like O_O. And Finland gets literally ONE SHOT and they freaking utilize it! Those last 30 mins were almost too much to sit through. But they fucking did it! Three points. And everything's possible.

  • So... first game from Portugal. A complete misery as expected but somehow we won 3-0. I hate our manager's tactics omg. 70 minutes into the game nil nil, Portugal playing super slow and he still asks the team to slow down. Oh lord have mercy! But it was a though game. Hungry was very defensive and did their game. Almost worked.

    (I should have watched the Nintendo show instead.)

  • I guess the trick is to hypnotize the adversary.

  • Team Canada soccer has advanced to the final round of qualifying for the World Cup for the first time in 24 years. Our national soccer team has made serious strides in a short period of time and they are going for it with a lot of momentum this year. My friend works as an equipment manager with the team so he gets to travel the world and witness this ascension first hand.

    Canada is ranked 70th world wide but no reason to believe they can't beat some of the other finalists that are barely ranked ahead of them. Biggest competition will be Mexico (11th) and USA (20th). Top 3 in CONCACAF advance.
