Eriksen sends 'his greetings' to teammates after collapse

"This morning we have spoken to Christian Eriksen, who has sent his greetings to his teammates," the Danish federation composed on Twitter." His condition is stable, and he continues to be hospitalized for further examination. The team and staff of the national team has received crisis assistance and will continue to be there for each other after yesterday's episode."

The Euro 2020 game was suspended for approximately 90 minutes following Eriksen's collapse.

The Danish team canceled all proposed media activities at its base camp on Sunday and postponed a training session.

The 29-year-old Eriksen was being treated at Rigshospitalet, one of Denmark's top hospitals which is less than a mile away from Parken Stadium, where the game was played.

The Danish federation, called the DBU, additionally thanked fans and other teams because of their outpouring of support for the Inter Milan midfielder who earned a reputation among the world's top playmakers throughout his seven years in the Premier League in Tottenham.

Denmark trainer Kasper Hjulmand said after Saturday's game the Danish players could be offered any assistance needed since they try to focus on the rest of the tournament.

"We will spend the next few days processing this as best we can," Hjulmand explained. "And of course we're surrounded by professional people. ... It is not normal to perform such a game and then see among your friends suffer from a heart issue."

The incident cast a direct pall on which was a party-like atmosphere in Copenhagen since Denmark hosted a significant championship game for the first time. The players were talking about the possibility of replicating the nation's upset win at the 1992 European Championship, together with Eriksen the centerpiece of the team in his attacking midfield role.

The staff is going to need to concentrate on just getting through the next game against top-ranked Belgium on Thursday in Group B. And Hjulmand praised his players for not being afraid to reveal their emotions both on the field and in the dressing area.

"It's a traumatic experience," Hjulmand explained. "The attitude (when play resumed) was let's go out and attempt to do what we can. And then we talked about allowing (yourself) to have these feelings. Plus it was OK to say no if they were not able to playwith. A number of these stated that they wanted to try. And I said no matter what emotions they had, it was all OK. You had to allow yourself to attempt to play the sport in the event that you felt like it. And you also needed to dare to show happy emotions. Because a number of them they weren't able to, they were not able to play."

Hjulmand said he had experienced a similar scenario during his career as a club coach"where we almost lost someone on the area."

"And now I can see how everyone is reaching out to their families right now and attempts FaceTiming them," Hjulmand said during his post-game news conference. "So that's what a situation like this does. It is a difficult night."
