Danish FA Share Update On Christian Eriksen’s Condition After On-Pitch Collapse

The Danish FA have released a statement on the health of Christian Eriksen after his on-pitch collapse against Finland saw the 29-year-old receiving urgent medical attention, before being taken to hospital.

Denmark's football association shared an update on Twitter, explaining that the player's condition was "stable" the morning after the game and that he had been in touch with his teammates.

The statement read: "Latest news: this morning we have spoken to Christian Eriksen, who has sent his greetings to his teammates.


"His condition is stable, and he continues to be hospitalised for further examination.

"The team and staff of the national team has received crisis assistance and will continue to be there for each other after yesterday's incident.

"We would like to thank everyone for the heartfelt greetings to Christian Eriksen from fans, players, the royal families from both Denmark and England, international associations, clubs etc.

"We encourage everyone to send their greetings to the Danish FA, where we will make sure they are all passed on to Christian and his family."


Eriksen's sudden collapse just before half-time of the Euro 2020 group match between Denmark and Finland led to the game being suspended and the 29-year-old receiving CPR on the pitch. He was eventually transported out of Copenhagen's Parken Stadium on a stretcher.

After a significant delay, the game was restarted, reportedly after both sets of players had been consulted and with Eriksen having been in contact with his teammates to assure them that he was conscious and receiving treatment in hospital.


Finland eventually won the match 1-0 in what was remarkably trying circumstances for the players involved.

Eriksen's condition will continue to be assessed while Denmark prepare to face Belgium and Russia in their remaining group games.
