A huge roar then went up from all supporters when the stadium announcer said Eriksen was "stable and awake".
Christian Eriksen is in a stable condition after he received urgent medical attention following his collapse on the field during Denmark's European Championship game against Finland in Copenhagen.
As the fans in the stadium were waiting for updates, Finland supporters started chanting, "Christian", which was then answered by the Danish fans shouting, "Eriksen".More news: Ontario accelerating 2nd COVID-19 vaccine doses in hotspot areas
The match was suspended after Eriksen collapsed towards the end of the first half and was given CPR by medics as his team mates formed a ring around him, before he was carried off on a stretcher and both teams left the pitch.
As the Danes trudged dejectedly off the field, the Finnish players celebrated with their ecstatic fans, but ultimately it was a night when football did not matter with Eriksen being treated at a hospital about one kilometre away. Kjaer, the captain, was particularly emotional, and was subbed off 20 minutes after the 8:30 p.m. restart.
UEFA said the teams were having an emergency meeting and more information would be provided at 7:45 p.m. local time.
