The Euro 2020 third game today saw a very heartbreaking moment as Denmark played Finland in Copenhagen.
Inter Milan star Christian Eriksen suddenly collapsed to the ground leaving everyone so shocked that even some fans in the ground started crying as they feared for the worst.
Such cases have been witnessed before but this one seemed a little bit different.
Eriksen just fell onto the ground as if his heart had stopped for a second and you could tell that something had gone so wrong in his body.
Most referees in this situation could have waved played on before hearing the roar from fans or players to stop play but Anthony Taylor was very alert for this one.
It took the experienced Premier League referee just 5 seconds to blow his whistle and immediately call on the medical team to the ground to attend to Eriksen.
The medics quickly attended to the midfielder and to the relief of everyone, he was confirmed to be still breathing.
Football fans have taken to social media to praise Taylor for his quick reaction which saved Eriksen's life.
