Alex Scott and Cesc Fabregas were visibly shaken at the BBC studio After Christian Eriksen fell on the pitch..
The Inter Milan star started for Denmark in the opening round of Euro 2020 against Finland.
However, towards the end of the first half, after a throw-in, the playmaker collapsed.
Both players’ sets were immediately gesturing for medical staff, as referee Anthony Taylor beckoned them as soon as the incident occurred.
The Danish team built a wall around Eriksen and gave him privacy when he received CPR. Meanwhile, country captain Kasper Schmeichel seemed to comfort a close member of the former Tottenham Star family who landed on the pitch.
The BBC has stopped reporting the match as it was revealed that the match would be cancelled.
It cut into studios that included Gary Lineker, Micah Richards, Fabregas, and Scott, all in shock.
Lineker said it was the worst thing he had ever seen on the pitch, but Richards admitted that Eriksen expected that anyone could do it.
Fabregas said: My body is trembling. All I can think of is the Christian family and what they have to experience.
“It’s a very sad moment. I wish you the best.”
Scott added: “I can’t believe what we’re witnessing. Now I think football is completely out the window.
“You are thinking of his family. All the other players there are also witnessing it.
“I actually answered the phone and sent a message to my mother saying she loved her.
“I think it reminds me of how rapidly life changes, just like that.”
UEFA have announced that the match between Denmark and Finland has been cancelled after the incident.
