Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen is "awake" in hospital after collapsing in the Euro 2020 match against Finland, said the Danish Football Association, APA reports quoting BBC.

The 29-year-old's condition has been "stabilised", according to tournament organisers Uefa.

The game was suspended before half-time after the Inter Milan player fell to the ground and received emergency treatment on the field.

The Group B match in Copenhagen restarted at 19:30 BST.

"Following the request made by players of both teams, Uefa has agreed to restart the match between Denmark and Finland," said a statement from the organisers.

"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.

"The match has been suspended due to a medical emergency which involved Denmark's Christian Eriksen. The player is now in hospital and in a stable condition.

"Uefa wishes Christian Eriksen a full and speedy recovery and wishes to thank both teams for their exemplary attitude."
