Christian Eriksen, a Danish midfielder, fainted while playing and was given CPR by medics during his team’s Euro 2020 match against Finland on Saturday, and the match was called off.
Eriksen raised his hand as he was carried off the field on a stretcher, according to a Reuters photographer at the game.
While jogging toward the left touchline, Eriksen slumped unexpectedly. Just before halftime in their Group B match, the midfielder’s teammates formed a ring around him as doctors pumped his chest.
Both teams then exited the field, with officials holding up sheets to obscure the injured player.
