Sun 13 June 2021 | 6:04

Denmark captain Christian Eriksen collapsed during his side's Euro 2020 opener against Finland, and after medical treatment on the pitch, as he was given CPR, the Inter midfielder was pulled off the ground on a stretcher and then was taken to hospital.

However, according to

Fabrizio Romano

, after his situation at the hospital was stabilized, he used

Facetime

to call his teammates from the hospital and asked them to play the delayed game as “he feels better now”.

UEFA then confirmed

he was transferred to hospital and stabilized, where he spoke to his teammates in the dressing room at Parken Stadium.

However, the match ended with

a historic victory for Finland over the Danish men

as a 59th-minute goal from

Joel Pohjanpalo

was enough to earn the Finnish men all three points in their Euro 2020 opener in the Euro 2020’s Group B. 

The

1-0 victory

over Denmark was

Finland’s first-ever victory

in their first-ever appearance at a major tournament.
