The Danish FA and UEFA have confirmed the match between Denmark and Finland will resume tonight. ‘This happens after the players have been informed Christian Eriksen is OK’.

The match between Denmark and Finland was suspended after Eriksen collapsed in the final minutes of the first half of the Euro 2020 match at Parken Stadium.

The TV images showed the Nerazzurri star was given CPR on the pitch and was eventually ‘transferred to hospital and stabilised’ after having received medical attention.

Agent Martin Schoots has reassured Inter midfielder Christian Eriksen is ‘awake and can talk’ after the dramatic moments in the European Championship match.

The match will be completed today and resumes at 19.30 UK time tonight.

“Christian Eriksen is awake and his conditions are still stable,” the Danish FA wrote on Twitter. “He will stay in hospital for further examinations.

“The match against Finland will be completed tonight. This happens after the players have been informed that Christian is OK. The match restarts at 20.30 [local time].”

UEFA has confirmed the players and teams have requested to finish the game tonight.

“Following the request made by players of both teams, UEFA has agreed to restart the match between Denmark and Finland tonight at 20.30 CET (TBC),” the statement said.

“The last four minutes of the first half will be played, there will then be a five-minute half-time break followed by the second half.”
