England will play for the first time in history the European Championship final, and will face Italy at Wembley next Sunday. This Wednesday, the Three Lions defeated Denmark 2-1, in extra time, after tying 1-1 at the end of 90 minutes.
In half an hour, the Danes, together with Mikel Damsgaard, took a direct free kick to beat Jordan Pickford. He did not wait for the British reaction and arrived 10 minutes later. Harry Kane threw Bukayo Saka on the right flank, crossing the Arsenal wing in the area, and Simon Keir, trying to avoid Raheem Sterling’s goal, put the ball into his own net.
In the second half, the balance was dominant and it was necessary to wait for extra time to find the winner. In the 104th minute, Jensen’s controversial penalty on Sterling made Kane reach the 11-meter mark. Head-to-head with Kasper Schmeichel, the Tottenham striker allowed the Danish goalkeeper to make a fine save, but in the rebound, Kane scored the fourth goal in the competition to give victory and push off a runaway Wembley.
For the Danes, exiting the scene after Euro 2020 is unforgettable, especially after the tragic situation that surrounded Christian Eriksen in the opening match.
