Christian Eriksen has thanked the football world for its support after he collapsed with a cardiac arrest during Denmark's Euro 2020 clash against Finland on Saturday.

The game was stopped and eventually restarted an hour and 45 minutes later, with Finland winning 1-0, but all thoughts were with the health of the 29-year-old Inter Milan midfielder.

Messages have been pouring in from team-mates, pundits, fans and beyond.

On Tuesday, the Dane released his own message from his hospital bed.

"Big thanks for your sweet and amazing greetings and messages from all around the world," it read.

"It means a lot to me and my family. I'm fine - under the circumstances. I still have to go through some examinations at the hospital, but I feel okay.

"Now, I will cheer on the boys on the Denmark team in the next matches. Play for all of Denmark."

Last night Belgium midfielder Youri Tielemans said their match against Denmark on Thursday will be "emotional," with the players still trying to process Eriksen's scare.

"It's going to be an emotional match - we know that, with what happened," Tielemans said.

"You can't just forget about that in a couple of days, we'll never forget that."

Tielemans said he had contacted Leicester City team-mate and Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel to offer his good wishes to Eriksen after the incident.

"It's a very difficult moment to go through for everybody in football but also in the world.

"We definitely don't want to see that live, but that did happen. They [the Denmark players] reacted very well and handled it excellently."

Belgium are top of Group B after their 3-0 win over Russia in the opener, while Denmark are third following their 1-0 defeat by Finland.
