Christian Eriksen is stable and speaking to his teammates, the Danish FA has confirmed.
In a statement posted to Twitter on Sunday, the Danish FA wrote: “This morning we have spoken to Christian Eriksen, who has sent his greetings to his teammates. His condition is stable, and he continues to be hospitalised for further examination.
“The team and staff of the national team has received crisis assistance and will continue to be there for each other after yesterday’s incident.
“We would like to thank everyone for the heartfelt greetings to Christian Eriksen from fans, players, the Royal Families from both Denmark and England, international associations, clubs etc.
“We encourage everyone to send their greetings to the Danish FA, where we will make sure they are all passed on to Christian and his family.”

The Inter Milan star received life-saving treatment on the pitch before he was taken to the hospital.
The match was postponed, with players on both sides noticeably distressed.
Eriksen was confirmed conscious at hospital, and later FaceTimed his Denmark teammates.
The match resumed, with Finland winning 1-0.
Eriksen will remain in hospital for the foreseeable future while he continued to be examined.
One cardiologist professor Sanjay Sharma, who chairs the FA’s expert cardiac consensus group, fears he may never play football again.
He told the PA news agency: “Clearly something went terribly wrong. But they managed to get him back, the question is what happened? And why did it happen?
“This guy had normal tests all the way up to 2019 so how do you explain this cardiac arrest?”
Sharma added: “I’m very pleased. The fact he’s stable and awake, his outlook is going to be very good.
“I don’t know whether he’ll ever play football again.
“Without putting it too bluntly, he died today, albeit for a few minutes, but he did die and would the medical professional allow him to die again? The answer is no.
“The good news is he will live, the bad news is he was coming to the end of his career, so would he play another professional football game, that I can’t say.
“In the UK he wouldn’t play. We’d be very strict about it.”
