During the match, the retransmission depends on UEFA, but the subsequent coverage is already in charge of the responsible channels, which have the ability to choose which images are broadcast. Until the resumption of the match, images of Eriksen's mishap were looped, something that viewers did not like.
The short shots of the moments and the details of the crash were broadcast several times, despite the fact that the chain itself had questioned that UEFA had done it moments before. However, the organization did later justify itself through its director: "We show the sadness and despair of the people, the players and the spectators. We also feel unity in that moment of greatest concern. That had to be broadcast ".

But I immediately told my team not to stop. With more than 30 cameras in the stadium, We could have shown it up close, but we never did. ".
