The Danish Football Association (DBU) has released another update on Christian Eriksen’s condition following his collapse.

Christian Eriksen remains in hospital for further tests, but he is in a stable condition and has been in contact with his Denmark teammates.

The Inter Milan midfielder collapsed in the 42nd-minute of Denmark’s Group B opener against Finland on Saturday. Medical staff administered treatment and stretched him off the pitch. He was later revealed to be conscious and in a stable physical state. As of right now, the cause behind the fall remains undisclosed.

Now the DBU has released a fresh update regarding Eriksen’s condition on Sunday morning.

“This morning we have spoken to Christian Eriksen, who has sent his greetings to his teammates,” read the statement on Twitter. “His condition is stable, and he continues to be hospitalized for further examination.

“The team and staff of the national team has received crisis assistance and will continue to be there for each other after yesterday’s incident.

“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.

“We encourage everyone to send their greetings to the Danish FA, where we will make sure they are all passed on to Christian and his family.”

Despite having the option to postpone their Euro 2020 opener until Sunday afternoon, Denmark chose to continue the match on Saturday once it became clear Eriksen was stable.

Joel Pohjanpalo proceeded to score the only goal of the game to seal Finland a 1-0 win.
