Denmark vs Finland LIVE: Euro 2020 game suspended after Christian Eriksen collapses on the pitch

Denmark’s opening Euro 2020 game against Finland in Copenhagen has been halted after Danish player Christian Eriksen appeared to collapse on the field.

Medical staff were quick to attend to him while his teammates, opposition and coaching staff were visibily stricken by the scenes unfolding at the Parken Stadium.

Teammates formed a shield around the former Tottenham man, while fans inside the stadium were clearly stunned by the incident, with some pictured in tears. Referee Anthony Taylor called a halt to proceedings shortly before half-time with Finnish players retiring to the dressing room. Danish players remained on the field as doctors attended to Eriksen.

Uefa then confirmed that the match had been suspended officially due to “a medical emergency”. They later confirmed that Eriksen had been transferred to hospital “and has been stabilized.”
