A medical issue has forced the suspension of the group B match between Denmark and Finland. Christian Eriksen, a Danish midfielder, slumped on the field late in the first half of his team’s Euro 2020 match against Finland in Copenhagen on Saturday.

In the 42nd minute, Eriksen was walking alone along the sideline when he looked to slip and then fall forward. His teammates saw something was wrong right away and rushed up to him, yelling desperately for trainers to come to his rescue.

The teammates formed a circle around Eriksen, some of whom were in tears, to protect him as medical staff treated him on the turf. Television images showed a trainer applying chest compressions on Eriksen at one point.

Eriksen was treated on the pitch for over 20 minutes by trainers and medical personnel before being transferred to a stretcher and carried off.
