He fell during the 42nd minute of Denmark’s 1-0 loss against Finland in the Euro 2020. The match was immediately suspended but later restarted after two hours. Finland scored their winning goal in the second half of the game.
The medical crew said Eriksen fell unconscious after appearing to be out of breath. After he fell, his teammates immediately signaled for a medical team to rush onto the field.
Eriksen’s teammates, some in tears, formed a circle around him as paramedics administered CPR. Their Captain Simon Kjaer also went to console his distressed wife.
