    45+4. If you have just tuned in, Denmark hero Christian Eirksen suddenly fell to the ground in the middle of play earlier on in the game and all the players immediately signaled to the bench for the physio's.

    They are still trying everything they can to resuscitate him.

    45. The physio's are currently attending to the aid of Christian Eriksen but it's not looking good.

    Every face in the stadium looking on in distraught.

    All prayers are going out to him.

    42. Chrisitan Eriksen has just gone down in a heap and it seems very serious.

    The players are looking in distress as the physio's come dashing onto the field.

    40. As we approach the half-time whistle, it's safe to say that Denmark have controlled a lot of the possession but they have really struggled to break down this resolute Finn side.

    Their best bet at the moment is just lofting balls into the box but again even that avenue is currently being blocked off.

    It's been a sturdy first half for Finland, the nation will be proud.

    36. O'Shaughnessy is back on the field but he's returning with some cotton buds up his nose to stop the blood from leaking.

    Good on you lad, it's all part of the sport.

    33. As the corner came in, Daniel O'Shaughnessy clashed heads with what seems to be his own team-mate Joel Pohjanpalo.

    Anthony Taylor has stopped the game and it looks as if the defender will need to leave the field for some treatment.

    32. Christian Eriksen steps over another corner for Denmark.

    I've lost count on how many corners the Danes have had this half, it must be coming close to a record.

    30. OOOFF he's going to feel that one in the morning.

    Joakim Maehl put in a dangerous cross aiming for his Dane team-mate Poulsen at the back-post which left Hradecky and Uronen both scrambling for the ball.

    And they ended up clashing into eachother leaving Uronen coming off worse

    TEEM WILL TELL

    Just to elaborate on how much of a goal machine Teemu Pukki is, his ten goals means that no Finnish player has scored more in a single qualification campaign than him.

    He is yet to make an impact on this game so far but will Pukki make it count if he gets an opportunity?

    24. Well that was an anti-climax.

    O'Shaughnessy hurled his long throw-in into the box but Joel Pohjanpalo committed a foul on Thomas Delaney so Anthony has given a free-kick to Denmark.

    23. This might sound silly but Daniel O'Shaugnessy has a throw in on the right hand side and this is effectively a set-piece for Finland because of how long his throws are.

    The box is crowded with blue shirts, Finland seemed to have broken out of their shells.

    21. HOW HIGH DO YOU WANT THE GOAL?!

    The cross went all the way through and landed at the back-post to the left boot of Thomas Delaney.

    But the midfielder blazed his shot over the bar.

    21. Corner for Denmark which Eriksen will take.

    20. The Finns are beginning to grow in confidence once they get on the ball.

    The only problem is that they are not getting on the ball as much as they would like to so far.

    RED VS BLUE

    Both sets of fans are doing their best to get behind their nation.

    A sight we have missed in the footballing industry for a very long time.

    15. ANOTHER HUGE SAVE BY HRADECKY!

    This one was a little easier but the Finnish goalkeeper did well to deny Spurs midfielder Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg a goal in the Danish colours.

    His header was most certainly heading goal bound.

    13. No they can't.

    It didn't even beat the first man, that was poor.

    13. Right, the Arsenal and Southend junior Glen Kamara has just won a free-kick in a perfect position to be whipped into the dangerzone.

    Can they do something here?

    11. The Danes are really taking it to Markku Kanerva's side with wave after wave of attacks.

    For all of his energy and talent, Teemu Pukki has hardly had a kick up-front for Finland.

    ALL FOR ONE & ONE FOR ALL

    The citizens of Denmark have left a special message for the players who will be representing their country this tournament.

    And it's clear to see that it has encouraged them with the start they have had so far.

    7. BIG SAVE FROM LUKAS HRADECKY!

    Jonas Wind who scored the last time out against Finland tried a spectacular effort from range but the Finnish keeper was equal to it.

    The home side have started the strongest here and it's only a matter of time before they get the opener if Finland aren't careful.

    5. Congratulations to Robin Lod who has just picked up Finland's first ever yellow card in a major tournament for a reckless challenge on Martin Braithwaite.

    He's on an early tight rope now.

    3. What a throw that was by Daniel O'Shaughnessy.

    That took me back to the Rory Delap days because he threw the ball deep into the box from a throw-in on the left hand side.

    Wow.

    2. Ouch that looked painful.

    Glen Kamara who has high expectations to do well in the tournaments first involvement was to step on Daniel Wass' toe.

    Thankfully, the full-back was able to run it off.

    1.  The opening Euro 2020 match between Turkey and Italy was explosive but can Denmark and Finland follow in their footsteps.

    Oh and I forgot to ask, who’s your money on people?
