Eriksen collapsed as a throw-in was played towards Eriksen near the end of the first half. Distressed team-mates and the match referee Anthony Taylor immediately called for help before the Denmark team surrounded him in a circle as everyone around the world waited with bated breath.
Denmark team doctor Martin Boesen said Eriksen had been unconscious when he reached the player on the pitch.
"When I got to him he was on his side, he was breathing, I could feel a pulse, but suddenly that changed and we started to give him CPR," he said.
"The help came really fast from the medical team and the rest of the staff with their co-operation, and we did what we had to do and managed to get Christian back."
