Austria 3-1 North Macedonia, Euro Cup 2020: Stefan Lainer in Christian Eriksen tribute after scoring Austria's first Euro 2020 goal vs North Macedonia

Lainer after scoring the goal ran to the dugout, who handed him a jersey that had a message written on it: "Eriksen, Stay strong!" In a moment of true football camaraderie, Austria's right-back Stefan Lainer dedicated his goal to Denmark's playmaker Christian Eriksen on Sunday. Lainer opened the scoring during Austria's first Euro 2020 match against North Macedonia in the 18 minutes and he was quick to send a message to Eriksen, who collapsed during Denmark's opening match of Euro 2020 against Finland on Saturday. The match between Austria and North Macedonia - which ended in a 3-1 win for Austria - is the third at Euro 2020 since Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest. Lainer has never played with Eriksen but several members of Austria's squad, including ex-West Ham star Marko Arnautovic, have played against the stricken footballer.
