Denmark playmaker Christian Eriksen reportedly called his teammates from hospital and asked them to play the game against Finland tonight.

The match between Denmark and Finland was suspended after Eriksen collapsed on the pitch and the TV images showed the Inter midfielder was given CPR on the pitch.

UEFA then confirmed he was transferred to hospital and stabilised, where he spoke to his teammates in the dressing room at Parken Stadium.

SportStudio reports he face-timed his teammates and asked them to finish the game against Finland in Group B.

The teams were tied at 0-0 then the dramatic incident occurred and resumed the match at 19.30 UK time.

Atalanta full-back Joakim Maehle and Milan centre-back Simon Kjaer are still on the pitch, completing the match for their No. 10.

Eriksen, who moved to the Nerazzurri from Tottenham Hotspur in January 2020, has played 109 games for Denmark, contributing 36 goals.
