RANGERS ace Glen Kamara admits many of his Finland team-mates didn’t want to finish their Euro 2020 match with Denmark after Christian Eriksen collapsed.
The opening Group B game was stopped last month after the Inter Milan ace fell to the turf in obvious distress.
Medics rushed to treat the former Spurs player at the side of the pitch, as worried players from both sides tried their best to help.
The game was initially postponed by English ref Anthony Taylor with Eriksen rushed to a Copenhagen hospital for emergency treatment.

But as word filtered through that the playmaker had responded well and was in a stable position, the decision was taken to restart the game and play it to a finish.
Finland won the match 1-0 but it was evident that players on both sides had been affected by the incident.
And Gers midfielder Kamara, who featured for the Finns, revealed there that was a reluctance among some of his team-mates to carry on after the delay.
He told Rangers TV: "I know most of the boys didn’t want to play on and it was a difficult one to come back out.

"I praise everyone who came back out and we’re really happy he’s okay.
"You never want to see stuff like that happen on the pitch.
"It was a hard one to take but credit to everyone who came out and played on."
Meanwhile, Real Madrid have been hit with a positive Covid test just days before they travel to Scotland to play Rangers.
