Denmark’s Eriksen ‘Awake’ In Hospital After Collapse In Euro 2020 Game

Denmark star Christian Eriksen was awake in hospital, the Danish Football Union said on Saturday, after he collapsed on the pitch during the Euro 2020 game against Finland in Copenhagen.

“Christian Eriksen is awake and is undergoing further tests” at the hospital, the Danish federation said on Twitter, after the player was carried off the field having received CPR by medical personnel.

UEFA said Eriksen had been “stabilized” after the match was suspended in the first half.

European football’s governing body added that a “crisis meeting” had taken place with both teams and match officials over whether to restart the game.

Group B’s opening match was stopped after Eriksen fell to the earth near the touchline at the end of the first half, with Danish players in tears as medical staff tried to revive the Inter Milan player.

The previously raucous crowd at the Parken Stadium in the Danish capital fell silent, with the 29-year-old’s teammates gathering around him to stop anyone from seeing his on-pitch treatment.
