Euro 2020: Match abandoned as Denmark's Christian Eriksen collapses on pitch

He explained: "We got a bit of an insight into Christian Eriksen's character in the Spurs documentary, where some players may have kicked up a fuss, but he was very calm about it".

As the fans in the stadium were waiting for updates, Finland supporters started chanting, "Christian", which was then answered by the Danish fans shouting, "Eriksen". On Saturday night, before reports emerged that Eriksen was safe, Muamba tweeted "Please God" in reference to him.

The game had been halted in the 43rd minute with the score 0-0.

Denmark have scored just two goals in their last six opening group stage matches at the finals.

To the surprise of many, the game resumed after players from both sides requested it be finished. Players who on another day could not have played this match. Eriksen fell to the floor as he ran to control the ball from a throw-in, with no players near him.

After he fell, his Danish teammates noticed he was in distress and quickly signaled for a medical crew to rush onto the field.

Applause broke out in the Parken stadium among both Danish and Finnish fans, when it was announced that Eriksen had regained conciousness.

The street was barricaded to keep out vehicle traffic at the time of the shooting, Chacon said. The interim chief said "almost all" of the shooting victims appear to be innocent bystanders.

Eriksen's wife, Sabrina, was seen on the sidelines as she was consoled by teammates Simon Kjaer and Kasper Schmeichel.

Photos later showed Eriksen awake, conscious, and holding an oxygen mask to his face while on a gurney leaving the stadium.

He collapsed on the pitch, while no-one was around him, towards the end of the first half of the game in Copenhagen.

Eriksen collapsed on the field and had to be stretched off after receiving medical treatment for roughly 15 minutes, which included chest compressions.

And Pochettino, who managed the Inter Milan midfielder at Spurs, has now added his contribution.

"I completely understand that you can't play a soccer match at this level, after watching one of your best friends fight for his life", Hjulmand said.
