During yesterday’s match between Denmark and Finland, only seconds away from halftime, the 29 year old Inter Milan star, Christian Eriksen collapsed on the field. 

Eriksen was reported to be in a stable condition after he collapsed. The match was suspended shortly after the incident, after CPR was needed from the medical staff. 

Later in the evening, the UEFA announced that the match would resume, and Finland managed to score in the 59th minute by Joel Pohjanpalo and win the game 0-1. 

After he collapsed, his teammates quickly created a wall to protect the Inter Milan player from being seen as he was being treated at the moment. Eriksen was carried off the pitch after several minutes, covered in a blanket from the view. 

It was reported that while he was getting treated, all the Finnish fans were chanting “ Christian” as the Danish fans responded “ Eriksen”.
