Christian Eriksen’s doctors still have no explanation for his sudden collapse and will keep him in hospital for further observations.

Eriksen, 29, collapsed with no one round him in the first half of Denmark’s Euro 2020 opener against Finland in Copenhagen.

The ex-Tottenham star received was helped by team-mate Simon Kjaer before medics rushed onto the pitch to perform CPR.

After a lengthy wait, the Inter Milan ace was stretchered from the field, where a camera caught him sitting up with his eyes open.

He was transferred to a hospital where reports later emerged that Eriksen was stable and able to give the go-ahead of the game to continue.

Now the Danish team doctor Morten Boesen has provided an update on the stricken star’s condition.

"We don't have an explanation what happened", he told a press conference on Sunday afternoon.

"I didn't see it live, I saw it on the screen afterwards, immediately after it happened. You have seen the same as me, but there is no explanation so far."

According to Eurosport journalist Siavoush Fallahi, he added: "Christian Eriksen’s conditions are still stable.

"He’s been in contact with his teammates whom he encouraged. His tests looked fine and he will stay at the hospital for further observation."

Denmark manager Kasper Hjulmand also provided an insight into the message that Eriksen gave the team from his hospital bed.

He said: "Typically with Christian, he was concerned about us and his family. He said 'I don't remember much, but I'm more concerned about you guys, how are you doing?'

"That is typical Christian. That just shows that these big players and their generosity and the big persons like Christian, he is one hell of a player but what a person he is as well.

"He would like for us to play. He is a football player and he said he feels like he could go out and play. Christian feels best when his feet are close to a football.

"It was good to see him smile and we will see if we can get ourselves together and play for Christian."
