Less than two full weeks after Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen suffered cardiac arrest and nearly lost his life on the pitch, Denmark earned a place in the round of 16 of the UEFA European Championship.

Denmark’s emotional 4-1 beating of Russia, combined with Belgium’s 2-0 win over Finland, confirmed that the Danes will advance to the knockout phase of the tournament. Now they will face Wales on Saturday:

The Denmark players achieved their victory and then had to update a mobile device to know that they had received the necessary help from Belgium to finish second in Group B:

The aforementioned Eriksen collapsed on the field during Denmark’s tournament opener against Finland on June 12 and was resurrected before being transferred to a local hospital, where he remained until last friday. On the same day, the Danish Football Association announced that the 29-year-old had undergone successful surgery to have a defibrillator implanted.

“Thank you for the enormous amount of greetings, it has been amazing to see and feel,” Eriksen said in a statement. “The operation went well, and I’m doing well under the circumstances. It was really great to see the guys again after the fantastic game they played last night. Needless to say, I’ll be cheering them on Monday against Russia.”

For The Associated Press (h / t ESPN), Eriksen surprised his teammates by visiting them during Friday’s training session. It is unclear whether he will attempt to resume his career at this stage of his recovery.
