Global Correspondent and Senior Writer Sam Borden and producer Jim Witalka will report from Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium tomorrow when the Danes face Belgium (ESPN, 11:30 a.m. ET) in their first match since Denmark star Christian Eriksen collapsed on the field last Saturday against Finland.
Borden and Witalka were sent to Copenhagen after Saturday’s Denmark-Finland match. They had been in Skopje, reporting on what UEFA Euro 2020 means to North Macedonia and its people. The North Macedonia team made its international tournament debut on Sunday.
Copenhagen, Denmark, is the third European city and country Borden and Witalka, both award-winning professionals, will report from in the first week of the tournament.
Borden and Witalka began their journey in Rome and will crisscross the continent to capture the best sense-of-place stories. Borden has been updating his Instagram with plenty of behind-the-scenes photos.
Three additional reporters – Martin Ainstein (Spain), Alexis Nunes (UK), and Archie Rhind-Tutt (Germany) – will provide additional coverage based in their home countries.
