The Denmark and Finland game was briefly postponed. Denmark officials are now saying through a statement that the game will resume at 2:30 pm EST.

The players reportedly requested that the game resume following a positive diagnosis on Eriksen.

The 29-year-old has played for the Denmark National Team since 2010. He has also been a member of Inter Milan since the 2020 season.

“Moments like this put everything in life into perspective,” UEFA president Aleksander Čeferin said in a statement. “I wish Christian a full and speedy recovery and pray his family has strength and faith. At these times, the unity of the football family is so strong and he and his family carry with them the good wishes and prayers of everyone.
