Denmark And Finland Supporters Joined In Incredibly Moving Christian Eriksen Chant

We're all still shocked by what we saw in Copenhagen tonight. Thankfully, Christian Eriksen appears to be in a stable condition in hospital in Copenhagen. For the millions of people watching the match around the world, and the thousands in the Parken Stadium, it was one of the most terrifying things any of us have ever witnessed on sporting pitch.

After the incident, supporters in the stadium did share a truly incredible moment. Danish and Finnish supporters began a call-and-response 'Christian Eriksen' chant, with the Danes singing 'Christian' and the Finns chanting 'Eriksen'.

It was a mournful, but extraordinary moment between the two groups of Nordic supporters. All of the raw emotion of witnessing the incident can be heard in the chant.
