Christian Eriksen agents have revealed that the midfielder is “speaking” and “awakening” after the horrific collapse of Denmark Euro 2020 Match with Finland.
Eriksen suffered CPR on the pitch after collapsing shortly before half-time, and players on both teams were clearly in pain.
British referee Anthony Taylor called the Medic on the pitch and Eriksen received long-term treatment.
A tweet from UEFA confirmed that the Group B match was interrupted and Eriksen was “transferred to the hospital” and “stabilized.”
After talking to the player’s father, Eriksen’s agent Martin Shoots offered a further update to NPO Radio1 by saying, “Christian Eriksen can breathe and speak. He’s awake.”
Teammates formed a shield around the former Tottenham man, but fans in the stadium were clearly stunned and weeping at the incident.
Eriksen rushed to the floor to receive a throw-in near the corner flag deep in half of Finland’s field.
When the ball hit his knee, his 29-year-old face fell first, and a nearby player immediately signaled emergency medical assistance.
The doctor was seen squeezing Eriksen’s chest.
UEFA then announced the resumption of the match, with an official statement saying: “At the request of players from both teams, UEFA has agreed to resume the match between Denmark and Finland at 20:30 CET (TBC) tonight.
“The last four minutes of the first half are played, followed by a five-minute half-time break, followed by the second half.
“The match was interrupted due to an emergency illness involving Christian Eriksen of Denmark. The player is currently in the hospital and in a stable condition.
“UEFA wants Christian Eriksen to recover completely and quickly and appreciate the exemplary attitudes of both teams,” he said.
In a statement separate from the Danish Football Association, “Christian Eriksen is awake and his condition is stable. He is admitted to the Danish National Hospital for further examination.
“The match against Finland will take place tonight. This will take place after the players have confirmed that the Christians are okay. The match will resume at 20.30.”
