According to Romelu Lukaku, the Belgian players will kick the ball out of play in the 10th minute of their European Championship game against Denmark so the stadium can pay tribute to Christian Eriksen with a minute’s applause. 

The fans are planning a loud ovation for Eriksen in the 10th minute because the midfielder wears the No. 10 shirt for Denmark. Lukaku said both teams agreed to stop playing and join in the tribute.

Eriksen remains in the Copenhagen hospital near the stadium after suffering cardiac arrest during the game against Finland. Denmark coach Kasper Hjulmand said that he expects Eriksen to be able to hear the tribute from his hospital bed.
