Sent Sunday night, Newcastle writes in one press release that the spectator was awake and could hold and talk on the way to the hospital. They further write that the situation is stable and that the spectator is receptive.
The event lined up as before the first round was over. Tottenham’s Sergio Reguilón approached referee Andre Marriner in connection with a corner kick and pointed to the stands. There he had seen some have an acute medical crisis.
The players’ quick reaction made the person in the stands quickly get help. Tottenham player Eric Dier then made sure that health professionals took to the stands with defibrillators.
– It was instinctive and immediate, the reactions of Eric Dier and Sergio Reguilón. we know he is stable and that is good, says Tottenham manager Nuno Espírito Santo.
– I saw the fans waving their arms and I saw a person lying down. I saw that something wrong had happened, says Reguilón to the BBC, and says that what is special about him after the match is that it must go well with the spectator.
On social media, Reguilón and Dier get a lot of praise.
-Great respect for Regulation to quickly draw attention to incidents and for Dier who asked for the defibrillator, writes The Times journalist Henry Winter on Twitter.
– Great respect for Sergio Reguilón and Eric Dier, writes journalist Fabrizio Romano Twitter.
– Sergio Reguilón and Eric Dier both deserve a lot of praise for being able to quickly and proactively ensure that the game was stopped and that the spectator received treatment. Just like with Simon Kjær, Kasper Schmeichel, Anthony Taylor and others in Copenhagen. Every second counts, Mirror journalist Colin Millar writes Twitter, with reference to Christian Eriksen’s collapse in the Park during this summer’s European Championships.
TV 2 commentator Kasper Wikestad was clearly ready for it all to be used.
– What’s going on? This looked deeply worrying. The defibrillator is advancing. This summer’s European Championships showed us that life is fragile, commenting.
Danish Pierre-Emile Højbjerg was on the field when Christian Eriksen collapsed, and the Tottenham player also played Sunday’s match.
– Højbjerg is experiencing the same thing now. The thoughts probably go to my own experiences after Eriksen’s collapse, and comment further.
The players left the field after six minutes, but came after each restraint and the match was started again.
Tottenham led 2-1 when the match was stopped. Callum Wilson gave the home side the lead before Tanguy Ndombélé and Harry Kane turned the match around. When the match started again, Heung-min Son increased to 3-1.
An own goal from Eric Dier until minutes before the end made it exciting, but Tottenham held off and won 3-2.
