Denmark and Belgium players stopped their match on Thursday for a minute’s applause for Christian Eriksen. The players stopped play after the clock hit 10 minutes as players along with fans at Parken Stadium rose to applaud Eriksen.

Eriksen had suffered a cardiac arrest during Denmark's opening game against Finland at Euro 2020 and is currently recovering in a nearby hospital. The hospital is close enough to Parken Stadium that Eriksen was expected to hear the tribute from his room.
