Eriksen was walking alone near the sideline in the 42nd minute when he appeared to stumble and then fall forward. His teammates immediately sensed urgent trouble, rushing to him and waving frantically for trainers to come to his aid.
The players, some of them in tears, then formed a circle to shield Eriksen as the medical teams performed urgent care on the player as he lay on the grass. At one point, television images showed a trainer performing chest compressions on Eriksen.
Trainers and medical teams worked on Eriksen on the field for nearly 20 minutes before transferring him onto a stretcher and carrying him off the field.
