Denmark's Christian Eriksen stable after collapsing, receiving CPR, as Euro 2020 game with Finland suspended

Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen was stable in a hospital after collapsing on the field during the Euro 2020 opener with Finland in Copenhagen's Parken Stadium on Saturday.

"I just spoke to Christian's father, and he told me that he is breathing, and that he is able to speak," Eriksen's agent, Martin Schoots, told Dutch radio.

Eriksen was walking toward the sideline and was clearly struggling to make his way across. As the ball was thrown in his direction, it hit him and he fell to the ground. Teammates Martin Braithwaite and Thomas Delaney rushed to assist him, with Delaney beckoning furiously for medical assistance.
