England cancelled their Euros media press conference on Saturday amid news of Christian Eriksen's collapse.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane was preparing to face the media alongside Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate ahead of the Euro opener against Croatia tomorrow when his former Spurs team-mate collapsed during Denmark's clash with Finland in Copenhagen.

The rest of England's contingent were in transit to their overnight hotel in North London as the drama unfolded.

The football world held its collective breath as medics treated the 29-year-old midfielder for several agonising minutes while the fans in the Parken Stadium offered up their prayers.

Kane's thoughts would have also been with Eriksen – and would have been delighted to hear that his friend had been revived before being transferred to hospital.

The Football Association cancelled all official media engagements as a mark of respect to the Dane.
