Denmark playmaker Christian Eriksen is now stable in hospital after he collapsed during a Group B match against Finland on Saturday.
The Inter Milan player Eriksen collapsed unchallenged at Parken Stadium in Copenhagen late in the first-half.
Both sets of players panicked, some wept and fans looked tensed up as paramedics worked overtime to rescusitate him.
Referee Anthony Taylor called off the match before UEFA released a statement announcing the suspension of the match.
“Following the medical emergency involving Denmark’s player Christian Eriksen, a crisis meeting has taken place with both teams and match officials and further information will be communicated at 19:45 CET.
“The player has been transferred to the hospital and has been stabilised.
