Latest on the European Championship of Football:
Christian Eriksson remains in a Copenhagen hospital as he recovers after a fall during Denmark’s game against Finland at the European Championship.
The Danish team canceled all planned media activities at their base camp and also postponed a training session to give their players more time for Saturday’s event. Ericsson fell to the ground late in the first half and required CPR from the medical staff before he regained consciousness.
The game was postponed for about 90 minutes before it could resume. Finland eventually won 1–0.
Ericsson was being treated at one of the top hospitals in Denmark. The Rigshospitalet is less than a mile from Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium.
There has been no recent update on Ericsson’s status.
The Croats won that match in Russia three years ago. But this time England will play at home at Wembley Stadium in London.
Austria and North Macedonia will play in the middle match in Bucharest. Both the teams were not able to hold their training session at the National Arena on Saturday as rain soaked the ground. North Macedonia is making its debut in a major soccer tournament.
The final match will be between Netherlands and Ukraine in Amsterdam. The Dutch have not played a major tournament since reaching the semi-finals at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
