UEFA announced Eriksen, 29, has been transferred to an area hospital and has been stabilized.

Eriksen walked toward the sideline as the ball was the thrown in his direction during the 43rd minute. He then fell to the ground, prompting teammates Martin Braithwaite and Thomas Delaney to rush to his side while referee Anthony Taylor immediately blew the whistle to stop play.

UEFA later announced the match has been suspended due to medical emergency.

Eriksen plays for Italian club Inter Milan.
