Christian Eriksen: Denmark Midfielder 'stabilised' After Collapsing During Euro by TRUSTEDGUY: 8:16pm On Jun 12, 2021
Christian Eriksen is "awake" and undergoing tests in hospital after collapsing on the pitch as Denmark's opening Euro 2020 match against Finland was temporarily suspended just before half-time.

The 29-year-old's condition has been "stabilised", according to tournament organisers Uefa.

UEFA confirmed the Group B match had been halted due to a "medical emergency" after Eriksen, 29, dropped to the ground at the Parken Stadium shortly before half-time, leaving players from both teams in clear distress.

English referee Anthony Taylor called medics on to the pitch and Eriksen underwent prolonged treatment, including CPR.

Team-mates formed a shield around the former Tottenham player, while fans inside the stadium were clearly stunned by the incident, with some pictured in tears.



"Eriksen is awake and his condition remains stable," the Danish FA later said. "He remains hospitalised at Rigshospitalet for further examinations."


UEFA confirmed the match, which originally kicked off at 5pm UK time, would restart at 7.30pm at the request of players from both teams.

A statement read: "Following the request made by players of both teams, UEFA has agreed to restart the match between Denmark and Finland tonight at 20:30 CET.

"The last four minutes of the first half will be played, there will then be a five-minute half-time break followed by the second half."

The Finnish national team wrote on Twitter: "The thoughts of the Finnish men's national team, the Finnish Football Association and the Finnish football family are with Eriksen, his relatives and the Danish team."

UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin added: "Moments like this put everything in life into perspective. I wish Christian a full and speedy recovery and pray his family has strength and faith.

"At these times, the unity of the football family is so strong and he and his family carry with them the good wishes and prayers of everyone.

"I heard of fans of both teams chanting his name. Football is beautiful and Christian plays it beautifully."

Saturday's other Group B match between Belgium and Russia, scheduled for 8pm UK time, is set to take place as scheduled.

Eriksen's club, Inter, tweeted: "Forza Chris, all of our thoughts are with you."

Former team Tottenham said: "Get well soon, Christian. The whole Spurs family is with you."
