Finland and Denmark fans show support for Christian Eriksen with stadium chant

Fans attending the Euro 2020 match between Finland and Denmark have shown support for Christian Eriksen with a stadium chant following his collapse.

The former-Tottenham midfielder was in need of urgent treatment after he fainted to the floor in the all-Scandinavian fixture.

Denmark had just won a throw-in but the game failed to resume with Eriksen collapsing to the floor without being touched.

Referee Anthony Taylor immediately called the medical staff onto the field where Eriksen received emergency CPR.

In some distressing scenes, Eriksen's teammates and opponents were pictured in tears surrounding the 29-year-old.

Eriksen is now believed to be in a stable condition in hospital having been carried from the pitch on a stretcher.

The match was being broadcasted on BBC One but the cameras cut back to the studio after it became obvious that Eriksen would need special treatment.

A special tent was erected to give the paramedics some privacy while they urgently attended to the Dane.

The Inter Milan ace was eventually seen being stretchered off, whilst still receiving oxygen from paramedics.

From there he was taken to hospital where it has been confirmed by UEFA he is in a stable condition.

Fans, still shocked by what they have witnessed, started chanting their support for the 29-year-old.

Finnish fans were heard chanting 'Christian' with the Danish fans answering 'Eriksen' at the Parken Stadium in Copehagen where the match was being played.

The match will be resumed at 7:30 after UEFA held a crisis meeting with both teams and match officials.
