In a pact Wembley and with streets of England empty, Gareth Southgate’s England turned up a spirited performance as they defeated Denmark 2:1 to reach the final.
Mikel Daamsgard had given the Danes the lead on the 30th minute mark, with a sumptuous freekick, Euro 2020’s only free kick goal so far. But their lead was to last for just 9 minutes after Kjaer turned in a cross into his own net.
The game would then be dominated by England as they tried to assert their superiority in quality and therefore dominate the game. At this point, Denmark were content with defending.
The game dragged on to extra time after both teams saw off the full 90 minutes, only for Harry to score the rebound following Schemeichel’s save denied him of the penalty won following Raheem Sterling’s foul in the box.
The win puts England in the final of a major tournament for the first time since 1966, after they last won the World Cup.
This is also the first time the English will be playing in the Euro final, after 37 failed attempts before now. They take on Italy in the final at Wembley on Sunday.
It is either coming home or it is going to Rome.
