Inter Milan and Danish international Christian Eriksen is in stable condition after collapsing on the pitch during Denmark’s opening Euro 2020 match against Finland.

Eriksen collapsed and was unresponsive on the pitch near the conclusion of the first half. His teammates quickly formed a circle around him while medical personnel attended to the midfielder and worked to resuscitate him. The stadium and the rest of the world were left in silence awaiting news from Denmark on the status of Eriksen

Eventually, reports started trickling out that Eriksen was stable and a Getty photo showed him conscious being wheeled off the pitch. Our thoughts and prayers were then answered with an official statement from UEFA and the Danish FA that Eriksen was in stable condition at the hospital.

The match will resume later today after both teams talked and agreed to resume play upon finding out Eriksen’s condition.
