Euro 2020: Massive concern for Denmark star Christian Eriksen as he collapses on pitch, receives CPR

The Euro 2020 game between Denmark and Finland has been abandoned after Danish star Christian Eriksen collapsed on the pitch and was given CPR in what appears to have been a serious medical emergency.

Eriksen fell to the ground with around two minutes remaining in the first half prompting the immediate concern of his teammates and match officials. 

Emergency services soon rushed to the field where reports state that the Inter Milan player was given CPR on the pitch as concerned teammates and fans looked on. 

After lengthy treatment, Eriksen was stretchered from the pitch with his Danish teammates providing a wall of cover to obstruct the view of pitchside photographers. 

UEFA has since confirmed that the Group B match with Finland has been suspended and will not be replayed.
