Latest News June 13:

The governing body of European soccer said Eriksen has been stabilized and the Danish soccer federation said he was awake.

“Christian Eriksen is awake and is undergoing further examinations at Rigshospitalet,” the Danish federation wrote on Twitter.

Inter Milan team physician Piero Volpi told The Associated Press that the Italian club was in contact with the Danish soccer federation.

“We’re in contact with the Danish federation, the team manager, the team physician. But we still don’t know anything yet,” Volpi said. “We heard what UEFA said and we’re all happy that he’s been stabilized. But that’s all we know.”

Volpi added that Eriksen never contracted COVID-19, has no medical conditions that he’s aware of and has passed every medical exam without problem since joining Inter in January 2020 from Tottenham.

“But we’ll talk about that when the time is right,” Volpi added of Eriksen’s medical history. “Right now, the important thing is that he recovers.”

Good News: Uefa report that Eriksen hasd been transferred to hospital and been stabilised.

"Following the medical emergency involving Denmark’s player Christian Eriksen, a crisis meeting has taken place with both teams and match officials and further information will be communicated at 19:45 CET. The player has been transferred to the hospital and has been stabilised", UEFA said in a Twitter.

The medical staff, the Danish players, the Finnish players, the backroom staff from both teams, the referee, his officials and the crowd at the Parken Stadium deserve a massive amount of credit for their individual and collective responses to what happened in Copenhagen tonight.

*The Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen went down off the ball shortly before half-time in the match and players on both teams immediately signalled for medical attention.

The rest of the Denmark team formed a protective barrier around their teammate to shield him from view as medical staff appeared to perform CPR procedures.

Many were in tears, with English referee Anthony Taylor halting the game as cameras cut away.

"The UEFA EURO 2020 match in Copenhagen has been suspended due to a medical emergency," UEFA said in a tweet.

Eriksen was eventually stretchered off the pitch after several minutes, being protected from view by the medics holding up blankets. It's unclear what Eriksen's current condition is.

There are pictures in circulation from a reputable news organisation, which I have seen but am not going to publish here, that suggest Eriksen was conscious and wearing an oxygen mask as left the pitch on a stretcher.

He appeared to be having heart massage as well as several electric shocks to the chest from medical staff.

The 29-year-old received treatment for about 10 minutes before being taken off the pitch on a stretcher.
