Danish soccer player who collapsed during Euro Cup was reportedly 'gone' before being revived

Denmark's national soccer team provided an update on their player who collapsed mid-game on Saturday and the information was quite shocking.

According to the reports from the team's doctor, Christian Eriksen suffered cardiac arrest and "was gone" before being resuscitated.

The incident occurred in the 42nd minute in Denmark's game against Finland.

Players created a wall around to shield Eriksen from the crowd. First responders were the ones who were able to get Eriksen moving after performing CPR.

The team spoke with the midfielder this morning, noting that he was in stable condition. At this point, he is still being monitored at a hospital in Copenhagen.

"We would like to thank everyone for the heartfelt greetings to Christian Eriksen from fans, players, the Royal Families from both Denmark and England, international associations, clubs, etc," wrote the Danish Football Association.

"The team and staff of the national team have received crisis assistance and will continue to be there for each other after yesterday's incident."

Denmark went on to lose their first match of the Euro Cup 1-0. Their next game comes Thursday at 9 am PST against Belgium.
