UEFA invites Christian Eriksen to attend Euro 2020 Finals- Eriksen collapsed on the Parken Stadium field in the first half against Finland, his eyes staring blank into a TV camera. CPR was administered and his heart was restarted with a defibrillator as players shielded the medics.

He is now recovering at home. Eriksen’s agent could not immediately be reached by phone.

Initially traumatised but then inspired by the emotion over Eriksen’s plight, Denmark have stormed into the semi-finals and play England on Wednesday for a place in the final.

“I hope to see Denmark against Italy. That would be really, really big. Just imagine if they become European champions,” Ersgaard added.
