The frightening scene involving Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen that unfolded during Denmark and Finland’s European Championship game on Saturday has taken another turn as Denmark coach Kasper Hjullmand slammed UEFA on Tuesday for failing to offer the team a reasonable option for resuming the game.

Hjullmand initially criticized the governing body for failing to “lead with compassion” after giving the team just two options to resume the game when Eriksen suffered cardiac arrest and collapsed on the field just before halftime.
