Euro 2020: 'I love you' - Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku dedicates goal, victory to fallen teammate Christian Eriksen

Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku dedicated his side's 3-0 Euro 2020 victory over Russia to club teammate Christian Eriksen, who collapsed in his side's defeat to Finland.

In a terrifying incident, Eriksen was rushed to hospital after collapsing during the first half of the Denmark-Finland clash, with medical staff having to resuscitate the 29-year-old on-field.

The game was stopped for one hour and 45 minutes but resumed after the Danish Football Association announced Eriksen was awake and stable in hospital, and both sets of players told European governing body UEFA they wanted to continue.

Eriksen has since been confirmed to be in a stable condition.

In Sunday's (NZ time) final game, Belgium strolled to victory over Russia in St Petersburg, although the day's events were overshadowed by Eriksen.

Lukaku, who plays with Eriksen at Italian giants Inter Milan, paid tribute to his teammate - scoring twice against Russia.

Opening the scoring in the 10th minute, Lukaku grabbed one of the television cameras, saying "Chris, I love you", to his teammate.

Lukaku scored the third goal to complete the win.

"I'm really happy with the win," Lukaku said afterward. "But for me, it was difficult today because my mind was with my teammate Christian.

"I hope he's healthy. I dedicate this performance to him."

The 3-0 win saw Belgium move top of Group B, ahead of second-placed Finland on goal difference.
