UEFA Reports Denmark Player in Stable Condition Following On-Field Collapse

The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) reports that Danish footballer Christian Eriksen is in stable condition following an on-field collapse Saturday that forced the temporary suspension of a sanctioned EURO 2020 ‘Group B’ classification match between Denmark and Finland.

Eriksen’s sudden collapse took place near the end of the first half, with the score tied 0-0.

The match has since resumed.

Fans Highly Critical of Live Coverage and Photo Ops

Fans who were watching in real time Saturday were aghast at select news outlets’ live televised and digital print media coverage.

Unibet Poker ambassador David Lappin was one of several high profile poker personalities to call out what many felt was inappropriate coverage of potentially tragic moments on the Parken Stadium Copenhagen pitch.

Hands of Victory creator Kim Lund likewise criticized the live TV coverage.

New York Times readers who post on Twitter were especially upset at the use of an image (since removed) showing Eriksen being attended to as teammates seemingly formed a perimeter around Eriksen to shield him from such “breaking news” photo opportunities.

Meanwhile, partypoker ambassador Patrick Leonard shared a link to a live talkSPORT audio feed that fans can listen to for the latest updates on Eriksen’s condition.

Match Resumed – Halftime Report

Denmark and Finland remain tied 0-0 with the second half of the match expected to play out in its entirety.

Readers are encouraged to follow official league, team, and personal account on Twitter for updated information related to Eriksen’s condition.
