The Danish Football Association said on Sunday that Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen’s health condition is stable after collapsing in the Euro 2020 match against Finland.
The game in Copenhagen was suspended before half-time after the former Spurs playmaker fell to the ground and was given emergency treatment on the field.
“Today’s morning, We have talked with Eriksen, who was keen on sending his greetings to his teammates and his health condition is stable as he will remain in the hospital to undergo further medical examinations,” the football’s governing body in Denmark said in a statement.
“We’d like to thank all people for their feelings and supportive messages to Eriksen, whether they are fans, players, royal families of Denmark and England, international federations, or clubs,” it added.
“We encourage all send their gratings and messages to the Danish FA, and we will be sure that all these message will be conveyed to Eriksen,” it noted.
What happened to the Danish player?
The Inter Milan’s midfielder fell to the ground before the end of the first half without any interference from any player. The Danish players wrapped around Eriksen, in a state of shock to all who were on the field.
The medical staff of the Danish national team tried to treat the player for ten minutes before the referee decided to suspend the match.
Danish players were applauded on to the pitch by their opponents as they returned to the field to resume the game.
Uefa said it agreed to restart the match “following the request made by players of both teams”.
The final five minutes of the first half were played, before a five-minute half-time break and the second half.
