The Danish playmaker collapsed in front of shocked supporters and television viewers around the world during his first game at Euro 2020.
UEFA said Eriksen, his wife and six paramedics had been invited to the Euro 2020 final, but there has been no confirmation from the Inter Milan player whether he will attend.
One of the paramedics, Peder Ersgaard, said he was flattered to receive a VIP invitation, aka the guest of honor, from UEFA boss Aleksander Ceferin.

“I was happy, like a child at Christmas,” Ersgaard told FOA’s Fagbladet magazine.
“I’m very proud of my efforts, but also of the whole team. It’s not just one person’s efforts,” he added.
Eriksen fell on the Parken Stadium field, Copenhagen, Denmark in the first round of the Euro 2020 group stage match against Finland and his eyes glazed over in front of the TV camera.
CPR was used and his heart got an assist as the players fenced off the paramedics.
Eriksen is currently recovering at home. While the player’s agent could not be asked to comment on this by telephone.
