Finland on Saturday won its first game at a major finals as it beat Denmark in a Euro 2020 match. The game was, however, overshadowed by Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen collapsing on the pitch and being rushed to hospital.
The game was temporarily suspended awaiting confirmation that Eriksen was alright but after reports that the player was in a stable condition and awake, the game was resumed later in the evening, ending in a 1-0 win for underdogs Finland.
