Euro 2020 match suspended after Denmark’s Christian Eriksen needs CPRhttps://t.co/9IWiIxn7ce
The Denmark-Finland match has been suspended due a tragic and heartbreaking scene that saw Denmark’s Christian Eriksen collapse on the pitch. Eriksen is receiving medical attention, but it would be irresponsible to speculate on what the issue is.

As Germany quickly found out, Denmark is not a squad to be trifled with.
With Christian Eriksen, former Bayern Munich prospect Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, Yussuf Poulsen, Andreas Christensen, and a cast of solid players, Denmark is good enough to make life difficult for many teams — including their Scandinavian neighbors, Finland.
This one seems fairly easy to call as Finland is one of the tourney’s biggest longshots, but they have shown some fight and the ability to play other teams tough.
Let’s hope for a good one!
