Denmark’s match against Finland at the European Championship has been suspended.
The match was stopped after Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen collapsed on the field.
Eriksen was taken off on a stretcher after needing medical attention for about 10 minutes.
Eriksen collapsed untouched near the end of the first half and was immediately surrounded by medical personnel. His teammates then formed a shielding wall around him.
The Finland players huddled by their bench and eventually walked off the field while Eriksen was still getting treatment. Eriksen was carried off to a loud ovation.
In a tweet Saturday afternoon the UEFA announced the match would be suspended “due to a medical emergency.”
