Fortunately a photo published online shortly afterwards showed Eriksen to be conscious and both UEFA and the Danish FA confirmed that the player was "awake" and that his condition had "been stabilized," although he will need to undergo tests in hospital.

UEFA later reported that after a meeting between both teams and referee Anthony Taylor both sides had asked to finish the match, with the Danes saying they wanted to win it for their companion.

Until Eriksen's collapse, Finland goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky, had been the man of the match with saves from Jonas Wind, Eriksen and Pierre-Emile Hjobjerg as Denmark dominated with Teemu Pukki isolated in attack for Finland.
