Christian Eriksen, a Danish midfielder, is “awake” in hospital after collapsing during Denmark’s Euro 2020 match against Finland, according to the Danish Football Association.

According to tournament organizers Uefa, the 29-year-condition old’s has “stabilized.”

After an Inter Milan player fell to the ground, the Group B game was called off before halftime.

Eriksen was treated on the field after referee Anthony Taylor called for medical assistance.

Before the players were taken off the field and the match was postponed, Eriksen received CPR.

The match was called off due to a medical issue, according to Uefa.

“Following the medical emergency involving Denmark’s Christian Eriksen, a crisis meeting with both teams and match officials was held, and additional information will be communicated,” the statement said.

“The player has been stabilized and transferred to the hospital.”

Near the end of the first half, a throw-in was played towards him, and the incident occurred.

His distraught teammates surrounded him, and the stunned Copenhagen fans were visibly upset by the way the player was treated.

The other Group B match between Belgium and Russia, scheduled for 20:00 BST on Saturday, is set to go ahead as planned.

“Forza Chris, all of our thoughts are with you,” Eriksen’s club, Inter, tweeted.

“Get well soon, Christian,” said a former teammate from Tottenham. “The entire Spurs family is with you.”

However, the game between Denmark and Finland is currently in progress as players return to complete the game.

Eriksen, who joined Inter Milan for £16.9 million from Spurs in January 2020, helped the club win their first Italian title in 11 years last month in his first full season with the club.

Christian Eriksen spent seven years with Tottenham, scoring 69 goals in 305 appearances.
