Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen collapsed while playing and was given CPR by medics during his side’s Euro 2020 soccer match with Finland on Saturday, and the game has been suspended.

The Danish DBU football association tweeted that the 29-year-old was “awake and at Rigshospitalet for further examinations”.

The match was suspended with the score tied at 0-0.

UEFA has released a statement, noting that Eriksen had been taken to the hospital and stabilized.

Eriksen collapsed suddenly in the 42nd minute of the match while running near the left touchline after a Denmark throw-in. Teammates Martin Braithwaite and Thomas Delaney rushed to assist him, with Delaney beckoning furiously for medical assistance.

As a hush fell over the 16,000-strong crowd, Eriksen’s teammates formed a ring around him as medics pumped his chest just before halftime in their Group B clash.
