Whatever happens on the field for Denmark in the remainder of this tournament has very much taken a back seat after the harrowing ordeal involving Christian Eriksen.

The former Spurs midfielder, and current Inter Milan player, is recovering well in hospital after collapsing during the game, but will miss the rest of the tournament as his football career hangs in the balance.

For his teammates, the fact Eriksen is on the road to recovery is every victory they need, but they will look to give him something to smile about as they take on Belgium at Euro 2020.

Belgium's Romelu Lukaku paid tribute to his Inter teammate after scoring in their opening win over Russia, and his team have planned another touching gesture for their match against the Danes.

A win in the fixture would see Belgium qualify for the last-16, while Denmark know they are under pressure to avoid defeat if they are to stand a chance of making it through to the next round.

The Danes lost the match 1-0, to a Teemu Pukki goal, after it had been restarted following the worrying incident involving Eriksen.

Theywill now hope to qualify against the odds from Group B, but face a tough task to get one over on Belgium.

Roberto Martinez's side won their first match 3-0 against Russia, and did so without Kevin De Bruyne, and were able to call upon the talents of Eden Hazard from the bench.

However, both Hazard and De Bruyne should be fit to start this match.

Will Romelu Lukaku win the Golden Boot? Have your say in the comments below.

Lineups

Denmark look set to call upon Brentford's Mathias Jensen to play in Eriksen's place, and manager Kasper Hjulmand may even call upon former Ajax striker, and current forward for Nice, Kasper Dolberg to play upfront.

Meanwhile, Axel Witsel has only just recovered from an Achilles injury, so will not be likely to start for Belgium, whilst defender Jan Vertonghen may be rested after sustaining a knock against Russia.

Full-back Timothy Castagne has been ruled out of the tournament after fracturing his eye socket in the same game.
