Speaking on Radio 5 Live at around 6.10pm, Pat Nevin said: "The fans are in shock - everyone in the stadium definitely is. I don't think many people have left. They are just sitting there, not knowing what to do. Everybody is in shock.

"He is such an incredibly loved player, and a fabulously talented player. We hope and pray for good news."

Eriksen is a talisman for his country and played for Tottenham Hotspur between 2013 and 2020, before moving to Inter Milan last summer.

Football players, fans and clubs across the world are now praying for Eriksen:

Cesc Fabregas said: "You realise that it is just a game. We need to enjoy every second and have passion for it but there are things that don't matter anymore. More important is his health.

"Enjoy what you have in life and be blessed. That is it. This is a big shock and a reminder for all of us."
