It was only nine days ago that Denmark players sent out a poignant message by forming a circle around medical staff battling to save their life of their stricken and much-loved teammate Christian Eriksen.

And on Monday night those same Denmark players joined together to create another circle, with Eriksen watching on at home recovering from his sudden cardiac arrest, to mark their improbable progress to the last 16 of the tournament.

Among a jubilant and victorious Danish crowd at the Parken Stadium, Denmark staff and players huddled together to get confirmation of their second-placed Group B finish following a 4-1 win over Russia…. thanks to LiveScore.

It’s not been a bad couple of months for the global sports media business, who recently named Cristiano Ronaldo as an Official Global Ambassador.

And as the post-match scenes were beamed out to millions upon millions around the world, footage showed the LiveScore app being used to check the other scores in the group.

It didn’t take long for LiveScore to spot the footage, which resulted in the below tweet…

How proud must Christian Eriksen be feeling tonight?

His country have done him so, so proud.
