Apr 4, 2024

On Thursday, Arsenal announced that midfielder Frida Maanum had a monitoring device fitted to record her heart function and will be under medical supervision following her collapse during the team’s 1-0 win over Chelsea in the FA Women’s Cup final. The club stated that Maanum underwent extensive testing and support from Arsenal’s medical team, with results reviewed by two leading cardiologists showing no obvious cardiac causes for the collapse. Although plans for Maanum’s return to training were detailed, she will miss Norway’s European Championship qualifiers against Finland and the Netherlands as she continues her medically supervised comeback.

During the match on Sunday, play was suspended in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time when Maanum collapsed. She was treated on the field and left the match on a stretcher, regaining consciousness before being taken off. The match resumed after a nine-minute stoppage, with Arsenal eventually winning 1-0 in extra time.
