Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen collapsed while playing and was given CPR by medics during his side's Euro 2020 clash with Finland on Saturday.

Eriksen collapsed suddenly while running near the left touchline. The midfielder's teammates formed a ring around him as medics pumped his chest just before halftime in their Group B clash with the Finns.

Both teams subsequently left the field with officials holding up sheets to hide the stricken player from view.

There was no immediate word on Eriksen's condition.

The match was stopped in the 43rd minute. UEFA later announced the match has been suspended due to medical emergency.
