Euro 2020 / Copa America 2021 Diary

All the latest news, information and photos from Barça's international stars competing in the two continental championships

Plenty of FC Barcelona players are involved in both the European Championship and the Copa America, which are taking place simultaneously in June and July. Scroll down for all the latest news on our stars at the two continental tournaments.

Saturday, 12 June

The game between Denmark and Finland resumed at 8.30pm CEST after it was confirmed that Christian Eriksen was in a stable condition. Martin Braithwaite's side were unexpectedly defeated 1-0 after Joel Pohjanpalo put the tournament debutants ahead after 60 minutes and Pierre-Emile Hoejbjerg missed a penalty. A disappointing start to the tournament for the Danes, but what matters much more to everyone today is Christian Eriksen.

UEFA has reported that Christian Eriksen's condition has stabilised and the Danish Football Federation has announced that "he is awake and is undergoing examinations at Rigshospitalet”.

The world of sport was shocked by the news and has been sending messages of support to the Inter Milan star. 

The game between Denmark and Finland has been suspended. UEFA has announced the decision after Denmark's Christian Eriksen collapsed unconscious to the ground. All of our thoughts and best wishes are with Eriksen right now.
