UEFA have confirmed that Christian Eriksen is stable and has been transported to hospital after collapsing during Denmark's European Championship opener against Finland.

In a statement on Twitter, they wrote: "Following the medical emergency involving Denmark's player Christian Eriksen, a crisis meeting has taken place with both teams and match officials and further information will be communicated at 19:45 CET.

"The player has been transferred to the hospital and has been stabilised."

Denmark's football association also released a promising statement in wake of Eriksen collapsing on Saturday.

They said that he's awake and undergoing further examinations.

They tweeted: "Christian Eriksen is awake and is for further examinations at Rigshospitalet.

"The match is temporarily postponed. New message comes at 19.45."

Eriksen's agent, Martin Schoots, provided more encouraging signs, saying the midfielder was breathing and speaking.

"I just spoke to Christian's father, and he told me that he is breathing, and that he is able to speak," said Schoots.

The Group B clash eventually resumed with Finland coming out on top, winning 1-0 thanks to a second-half header from Joel Pohjanpalo.
