His teammates formed a wall around him to give him privacy as the medics treated him.
Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen was taken to a hospital Saturday after collapsing on the soccer field during a match at the European Championship, leading to the game being suspended for more than 90 minutes. The Danish soccer federation says Eriksen is awake.
Play came to a halt just before half-time as Eriksen, without any players around him, dropped to the ground.
Denmark dominated the match before and after the traumatic incident, but Finland striker Joel Pohjanpalo headed home the victor on the hour with his side's only attempt of the game.
UEFA also confirmed in a tweet Eriksen "has been stabilised" after a Reuters photographer at the game saw him raise his hand as he was carried from the pitch.Читайте также: Woman punches crocodile to save sister’s life
Players of Denmark escort their teammate Christian Eriksen as he is stretchered off the pitch after receiving medical assistance. The Finland players and staff are visibly anxious, too.
UEFA quickly announced that the match would be suspended - the Danish FA later announced that the game would be resumed the same evening, once the players had confirmed Eriksen's condition.
Tottenham, for whom Eriksen made 305 appearances between 2013 and 2020, wrote: 'All of our thoughts are with Christian Eriksen and his family'.
In the stadium, an incredible act of solidarity happened as the two sets of opposing supporters both chanted Eriksen's name out of respect for the playmaker. Kjaer, the captain, was particularly emotional, and was subbed off 20 minutes after the 8:30 p.m. restart.
The Finland players huddled by their bench and eventually walked off the field while Eriksen was still getting treatment, as did the referees.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
