Eriksen: “We didn’t feel that it was particularly hot because of the air conditioning in the stadium”
Speaking ahead of Denmark’s Group D game with France, Christian Eriksen discussed the air conditioning at pitch level in Qatar:
“We’ve postponed training because of the heat. We just train later, so the heat hasn’t really been a problem. During the match, we didn’t feel that it was particularly hot because of the air conditioning in the stadium. It sounds strange in itself to say that we’re playing in an air-conditioned football stadium. [The air] felt more like it was damp, there was something about the oxygen. When you did a sprint, it was a little harder to get your breath back compared to normal, but that’s also because we’re playing here.”
