"We had two choices, to go out and play the match immediately or play the next day at noon - none were good. We took the lesser of two evils to finish the match. Many of the players were not in a condition to play this match," the Barcelona forward said.
"We were all about to lose a friend and teammate. It's not something you normally think of on a football pitch. No one can prepare for what happened."
After Eriksen had been transported to the hospital, Denmark and Finland eventually returned to the pitch to resume the game. Unfortunately for the Danes, they lost the match 1-0.
'I still feel affected by the situation': Braithwaite speaks out on Eriksen's collapse
"I still feel affected by the situation, but the most important thing is that Christian is better and that's why I'm better too. His health is the most important thing. It was a horrible experience," Martin Braithwaite has said in a recent press conference when asked about Christian Eriksen's collapse, as quoted by Diario Sport.
"I had some images of what happened on Saturday that I wanted to get out of my head.
"I wanted to go back to training today and disconnect from everything because when you're sitting in the room alone, a lot of things are going through your head."
"It's hard to say how it all started, it was like things happened naturally. We understood that we had to take care of Christian and we tried to do the best we could," he said.
