Denmark star Christian Eriksen has been “stabilised” in hospital after collapsing during his country’s opening Euro 2020 game against Finland in Copenhagen.
The Inter midfielder went down during the opening half of the Group B match and required extensive medical attention on the pitch before he was eventually removed on a stretcher.
After Eriksen was taken to the hospital, UEFA sent out word that he’d been stabilised. The Danish FA also confirmed that Eriksen was awake and undergoing further tests.
Play came to a halt just before half-time as Eriksen, without any players around him, dropped to the ground.
Referee Anthony Taylor immediately blew his whistle and brought proceedings to a halt. Denmark and Finland immediately called for the medical staff, who raced onto the pitch to administer treatment.
His Danish team-mates formed a shield around him as the medics provided treatment, before white sheets were held up around him to provide privacy.
Following several minutes of on-field treatment, UEFA confirmed the match was suspended.
