The Finland team made their way to the dressing room first and the game was subsequently called off as Denmark's distraught-looking players walked in front of the stretcher carrying their team-mate.
Denmark have confirmed that Eriksen is in hospital and is now in a stable condition. The news shocked the football world on Saturday with messages of support for Eriksen coming from players and countries alike via social media.
UEFA later released a statement confirming that the game between Denmark and Finland would resume at 20:30 CEST time on Saturday. Finland went on to win the game 1-0 thanks to a second half goal from Joel Pohjanpalo.
A picture of Eriksen conscious, with an oxygen mask held in place by himself, was another reason for hope that he would recover moments afer collapsing. Almost 40 minutes after the incident, UEFA also confirmed that Eriksen had been taken to hospital and was in a stable condition. Since then, reports of his condition have been optimistic.
Inter CEO Marotta: “Christian Eriksen just sent a message on Inter whatsapp chat, it was few minutes ago. We’re optimistic about Christian conditions, Denmark staff told us that the situation is under control”, he told Rai Sport. 🇩🇰 #Eriksen— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) June 12, 2021
