Thoughts with CE and his family and hope for a full recovery.
Denmark we're well on top before Eriksen collapsed. Since the restart they just don't look focused at all, which is understandable.

The goal Kasper conceded was a clear example of that.

Congratulations.

Thought the Finland team showed real class and dignity, couldn't have been easy for them to play on either.

Plus it was Finland flags that helped shield Eriksen from view which were thrown on by Finland fans.

Denmark 32 chances on goal Finland 1

only 38% possession...what a defensive display.and saved penalty.

finnsh goal scorer spoke more about Ericsson than the goal that he scored

Re: the terrible event that happened to Eriksen. The same feed was shown here in USA and the switch wasn't flicked either. I guess the discretion was down to the director of the global stream.

I too wished they had flipped a switch; it was horrific and shocking to see CPR and the defibrillators being used. It took a long time to restart his heart and i too had feared the worst. In soccer, definitely the most shocking thing I've seen.

My thoughts go out to Eriksen, his family, and his teammates in what was a terrible event. Props to their courage to restart the game. I don't think anyone would've disagreed with the restart being postponed.

I think that's why Kalvin was selected to start. He's very good at that sort of thing (as we all know).

Twitter in meldown (as usual) over Kalvin's inclusion over Grealish. Don't they realise that Foden and Sterling are the player(s) who have taken the divers place.
