Christian Eriksen has been transferred to hospital and “stabilized”. I’m not sure if that means he’s in stable condition, but I sure hope so.

Just before halftime of Denmark’s opening group game against Finland at Euro 2020, Denmark captain Christian Eriksen appeared to collapse on the pitch, and the immediate reaction of all those around him made it pretty clear that this was something very serious.
The medical team rushed on as the Denmark team formed a protective circle around Eriksen to block the view of the still rolling cameras sending these images out for the whole world to see.
The UEFA EURO 2020 match in Copenhagen has been suspended due to a medical emergency.— UEFA (@UEFA) June 12, 2021
After about 15 minutes, UEFA officially suspended the match due to what they’re calling a “medical emergency”. It clearly won’t be resuming anytime soon, and whether it goes ahead at some point in the near future is debatable.
This is all we know at the moment. We can only hope and pray that Eriksen will be okay.
