Kasper Hjulmand lets emotion take over following Christian Eriksen collapse

An emotional Kasper Hjulmand hailed the togetherness of his Denmark squad for returning to complete their opening match of Euro 2020 against Finland after midfielder Christian Eriksen had collapsed and was taken to hospital.

Shortly before half-time at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen, former Tottenham playmaker Eriksen suddenly dropped to the ground as he ran back from the Finland penalty area, leaving players from both teams in clear distress.

English referee Anthony Taylor immediately called medics on to the pitch and Eriksen underwent prolonged treatment, with compressions performed on the chest of the 29-year-old Inter Milan player before he was taken to hospital for further treatment, where his condition was said to have stabilised.

Kanerva added: "(On our) first time in a major tournament and an opening game against Denmark in their home stadium. When we heard the national anthems, it was very emotional for us.

"And then what happened with Christian Eriksen – a very dramatic and sad incident. And then finally, we get a good result from the game.

"Of course I am happy for that. Unbelievable. We are going to remember this for a long time for different reasons."

Finland forward Teemu Pukki, the Norwich striker, said: "We are of course delighted for the result, even though the evening left much more to think about."
