​Man City star De Bruyne toned down celebration because of Eriksen

Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne admits he did not celebrate excessively against Denmark because of the Christian Eriksen situation.

The Red Devils claimed a 2-1 come from behind group stage win against the Danes to seal a knockout spot at Euro 2020.

De Bruyne was referencing the incident where Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch against Finland in Denmark's first group stage game.

Asked about the lack of celebration, De Bruyne explained: "I was happy, of course, but I respect people here too much to celebrate wildly.

"I went to the part of the pitch where Christian Eriksen collapsed on Saturday and I stayed calm."
