Finland’s Players Applaud Denmark Back on to Pitch After Eriksen Collapse
Finland's players applauded Denmark back onto the pitch Saturday, June 12, as they returned to complete their opening Euro 2020 match after their midfielder Christian Eriksen was rushed to hospital after collapsing during the match.

READ MORE: Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen was taken to a hospital Saturday after collapsing on the field during a match at the European Championship, leading to the game being suspended for more than 90 minutes.

The governing body of European soccer said Eriksen has been stabilized and the Danish soccer federation said he was awake.

"Christian Eriksen is awake and is undergoing further examinations at Rigshospitalet," the Danish federation wrote on Twitter.

The Euro 2020 match between Denmark and Finland had been halted in the 43rd minute with the score 0-0 but was to resume at 8:30 p.m. local time.

UEFA said both teams had held an emergency meeting before deciding to continue playing. The players came back out onto the field at around 7:15 p.m. to a huge ovation as they started warming up for a second time.

Eriksen was given urgent medical attention on the field for about 10 minutes after collapsing near the end of the first half. He was then carried off on a stretcher. UEFA then announced the game had been suspended "due to a medical emergency."

    Both teams (and fans!) handled the situation with such class and sportmanship, it makes me a bit emotional. Wishing Christian a quick recovery.

    How could they play after that ..respect !

    • EL

      They could not play, therefore they lost the match, a match they would not normally lose. I'm sorry on behalf of Finland that they should win on that basis.

      That wouldn’t have been fair to Finland. However the game should’ve been rescheduled if it was possible. All those comments about the players decision to play is bull. They were given a choice to resume the game that evening or play at noon the next day, so not much of a choice. Unfortunately in these tournaments it’s difficult to reschedule. It was poorly handled by UEFA but they also a damned if you do and damned if you don’t situation. Life 1 - football 0 Congratulations to Finland for winning your first game in a major tournament and for your sportsmanship.

    • Huitase

      How would it be fair for Finnish team to give win for Denmark? It's unfortunate that things like this happen, but Denmark wanted to play, they weren't forced.
