Group B

Finland, who participated in the Euro for the first time, won the first match against Denmark. They should have wanted to explode the joy after winning the first game, however, Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen suddenly collapsed in the 43rd minute of the first half. He got cardiopulmonary arrest and the match was paused. After being resuscitated and taken to the hospital, it was finally resumed.

Denmark’s following match with Belgium was stopped at 10th minute of the first half after Eriksen’s number 10, and applauded to show support for him, which was a witty event.

The group leading Belgium and 2nd place Denmark advanced to the knockout stage. Finland in 3rd place and Russia in 4th place were unfortunately eliminated due to the goal difference, although they had 3 points, which was the same as Denmark.
