Denmark International Christian Eriksen collapsed during play, received CPR on field and was carried off on a stretcher after more than 15 minutes of treatment. UEFA have suspended the match but say Eriksen’s condition has “stabilized.”
Danish footballer Christian Eriksen collapsed on Saturday during Denmark’s opening Euro 2020 game with Nordic rivals Finland.
The incident happened towards the end of the first half when the 29-year-old dropped to the ground after playing a short pass.
Medics from the Danish team then rushed onto the pitch to treat Eriksen, who currently plays for Italian side Inter.
They then performed CPR on the former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder as he lay on the field before teammates formed a protective circle around him.
Medical treatment continued on the pitch for more than 15 minutes, before Eriksen was carried off on a stretcher with several of his Danish teammates, and a number of fans, visibly distressed.
