Christian Eriksen ‘asked Denmark players to play on’ in Finland defeat as Lukaku dedicates Euro 2020 goal to Dane

DENMARK have been beaten by Finland in a match where football was of secondary importance.

The match had been stopped after Christian Eriksen collapsed on the field just before half time, receiving CPR shortly afterwards.

To the relief of the crowd, Eriksen has woken up in hospital and reportedly asked his team-mates to continue the game.

But it was Finland who came home with the points with a header from Joel Pohjanpalo.

The Danes had the chance to rescue the match but Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg rolled the penalty to the Finland goalkeeper as they were beaten on an emotional evening.

Meanwhile in the other Euro 2020 Group B game, Inter team-mate Romelu Lukaku dedicated his goal to Eriksen.

He leaned over to the TV camera and said “Chris, I love you”.
