England is, for the first time in history, in the final of a European Championship and will face Italy at Wembley next Sunday. This Wednesday, the team of three lions beat Denmark 2-1, in extra time, after a 1-1 draw at the end of the 90’.
At the half-hour, the Danes took the lead, with Mikkel Damsgaard charging, flawlessly, with a direct free-kick to beat Jordan Pickford. The British reaction did not wait and arrived 10 minutes later. Harry Kane threw Bukayo Saka on the right, the Arsenal winger crossed low into the area and Simon Kjaer, in an attempt to avoid Raheem Sterling’s goal, introduced the ball into his own goal.
In the second half, the balance was dominant and it was necessary to wait for extra time to find the winner. At 104’, Jensen’s highly controversial penalty on Sterling brought Kane to the eleven-meter mark. Face-to-face with Kasper Schmeichel, the Tottenham striker gave the Danish goalkeeper greatdefence, but on the rebound Kane would even score his fourth goal in the competition to give victory and drive Wembley wild.
For the Danes it is the exit from the scene after a memorable Euro-2020, especially after the tragic situation surrounding Christian Eriksen in the opening game.
