Denmark's Christian Eriksen, one of the finest footballers in the world, had collapsed on pitch while playing against Finland in Euro 2020 game on Saturday.

Around 40 minutes into the game, Christian Eriksen had collapsed at the touchline with no players around him.

Referee Anthony Taylor, as well as both sets of players, instantly called on medical staff.

Eriksen looked to be receiving CPR from the medical staff, and electronic shocks.

Eriksen was later stretched off from the field after receiving treatment for around 10 minutes. UEFA has suspended the match.

Finland's players then went to their dressing room, while Denmark's players, visibly emotional, were seen praying for Eriksen's recovery.

After a tensed period of around 15 minutes, UEFA announced that Eriksen was stable and recovering well.
