“Fabrizio just spoke to Christian’s father and he told me that he is breathing, he is able to speak and he’s NOT in danger”. Martin Schoots, Eriksen agent, just announced to NOS that the situation is getting better.
Christian Eriksen of Denmark was conscious in hospital, according to officials, after collapsing on the pitch of Parken Stadium during his country’s Euro 2020 match against Finland.
After Saturday’s incident in Copenhagen, UEFA, the football tournament’s governing body, announced on Twitter that the 29-year-old “has been brought to the hospital and has been stabilized.” Eriksen is “aware” and undergoing testing, according to Denmark’s football federation.
The cause of Eriksen’s collapse was not immediately known.
The scoreless game was initially halted, but UEFA, the tournament’s governing body, later declared that it would resume at 18:30 GMT following a “request made by both teams.”
Eriksen collapsed along the sideline near the end of the first half of the Group B match, free of touch. Teammates Martin Braithwaite and Thomas Delaney rushed to his aid, frantically begging for medical help.
Medical personnel surrounded the attacking midfielder, who plays for Inter Milan in Italy, and began pounding his chest while heartbroken teammates formed a ring around him.
Eriksen was stretchered off the field after roughly 15 minutes, followed by the rest of his teammates and the Finland players.
