During the game, the midfielder went down and required significant on-pitch treatment toward the conclusion of the first half in Copenhagen.
Christian Eriksen, a Danish midfielder, is in stable condition in hospital after falling during his country’s Euro 2020 opener against Finland in Copenhagen.
Inter’s star went down in the first half of the Group B match, requiring significant medical care on the field before being carried out on a stretcher.
UEFA announced that Eriksen’s status was stable after he was brought to the hospital. Eriksen was awake and undergoing more testing, according to the Danish FA. The match was initially delayed before being re-started after a 90-minute delay, with Finland winning 1-0.
“The player has been brought to the hospital and has been stabilized,” UEFA tweeted as the first update on Eriksen’s condition.
“Christian Eriksen is awake and is having further examinations” in the hospital, according to the Danish FA.
“I’ve been in contact with his father for a while and he says that Christian is breathing and can communicate, that’s the good news,” Eriksen’s agent Martin Schoots told Dutch radio station NPO Radio 1. He is awake, but everyone is stunned. He’s accompanied by his girlfriend.”
Eriksen went to the ground without any teammates around him soon before halftime, bringing the game to a halt.
The game was instantly stopped as referee Anthony Taylor blew his whistle. Denmark and Finland promptly summoned medical personnel, who rushed onto the field to provide care.
While the medics treated him, his Danish teammates created a shield around him, and white sheets were draped around him to provide privacy.
The match was suspended after several minutes of on-field treatment, according to UEFA. Just over an hour later, the European regulatory body said that the match would be restarted after a request from both teams’ players.
The 29-year-old progressed through Ajax’s youth system before becoming a star for the Dutch club.
Eriksen’s achievements in the Netherlands earned him a move to Tottenham in 2013, where he quickly established himself as one of the club’s best players.
Eriksen joined Inter in January 2020 after six and a half seasons with Spurs.
Eriksen needed some time to establish himself in Milan, but he was a key member of Antonio Conte’s Serie A title-winning team in 2020-21.
