Christian Eriksen collapses in Euro 2020 match with Finland

The European Championship game between Denmark and Finland was halted briefly on Saturday after Christian Eriksen required urgent medical attention on the field near the end of the first half.  He was given treatment for about ten minutes after collapsing on the field itself before being carried off on a stretcher. Eriksen was transferred to the hospital and has been stabilized according to his manager and a tweet by UEFA on Christian Eriksen’s condition. UEFA then announced the game had been suspended due to a medical emergency.

Christian Eriksen collapses in Euro 2020 match with Finland

Eriksen had just played a short pass when he fell flat out, face-forward onto the ground with a glazed look in his eyes. His teammates immediately gestured for help and medics rushed onto the field.  Eriksen was given chest compressions as his teammates stood around him in a shielding wall for privacy. He was subsequently carried off to a loud ovation on a stretcher.

Meanwhile the Finnish players huddled by their team bench and eventually walked off the field while Eriksen was still getting treatment, as did the referees. In an astonishing turn of events, the Danish FA reported that the game will resume once their players have been reassured that Christian Eriksen is in a stable condition. The last four minutes of the first half will be played, followed by a five-minute half-time break and then the second half. Belgium versus Russia will also go ahead.
