The match between Denmark vs Finland was held at Parken Stadium, Copenhagen on Saturday (12/06/2021). Denmark looked stunning early in the game, even the dangerous threat they had created since the 7th minute.

Jonas Wind kicked hard right in front of the box, but unfortunately Finnish goalkeeper Lukan Hradecky managed to pull it off. In the 15th minute a cross from Joakim Maehle that was met by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s header was also cleared off the line by Hradecky.

The Danish attack did not slacken, but Hradecky’s goal was still difficult to penetrate. In the 19th minute, he blocked Christian Eriksen’s shot from outside the box. In the 30th minute, the Finnish goalkeeper was still able to save his team from conceding. He quickly intercepted Maehle’s cross which was aimed at Yussuf Poulsen at the far post.

At the end of the first half, Eriksen suddenly collapsed on the left side of the pitch. He is now reported to be in a stable condition and able to communicate, as announced by UEFA. The players immediately asked for the help of the medical team.

The 29-year-old was then given CPR or resuscitation of the lung on the field by the medical team. After a while of first aid, Eriksen was stretchered off the pitch for further transfer to hospital.

The match between Denmark vs Finland was temporarily postponed due to the incident in a 0–0 draw. The game was called off a few minutes before the end of the first half to focus on tackling Christian Eriksen.
