England Beat Denmark 2-1 To Reach Final of Euro 2020

On Wednesday, England defeated Denmark 2-1 to reach the final of a European Championship for the first time in history. Although the Danish team put in a very decent performance, Gareth Southgate’s men advanced.

Throughout the match, both teams played with intensity, fighting for every ball. When the game could not have been more even, Damsgaard took a free kick and with a powerful shot beat Jordan Pickford to score his team’s first goal.

Raheem Sterling came close to scoring the equalizer, but his close-range shot was saved by Kasper Schmeichel.

In the 39th minute, Harry Kane played a through ball to Saka, the Arsenal player sent in a low cross for Sterling and Simon Kjaer tried to clear the ball, but ended up scoring a deflected own goal.

In the second half, Maguire almost scored with a header, but Schmeichel saved.

The match had to go into extra time. In the 102nd minute, Sterling fell inside the box after a slight contact and referee Danny Makkelie awarded a controversial penalty for England.

Kane took it and despite Schmeichel’s save, the striker tapped in the rebound and scored the winner.

On Sunday, England will play again in a major tournament final after 55 years. They will face Italy (who are unbeaten in 33 matches) at Wembley.
