What are today's key EURO 2020 talking points?
The play was paused after 10 minutes in the Denmark-Belgium match to pay tribute to Danish star Christian Eriksen, who collapsed with a suspected heart problem in his country's opening match against Finland. Players and fans at Parken Stadium rose to applaud Eriksen, who will be fitted with an implantable device to monitor his heart rhythm, the Danish soccer federation said on Thursday.
