England secured their place in the final of the UEFA Euro 2021 tournament after defeating Denmark in a semi-final match which would see the game go to extra time.
Denmark got the scoring underway tonight with a goal from Mikkel Damsgaard in the 30’ minute. Closely followed in the 39’ minute by an own goal from Simon Kjær, levelling the score at one each.
After a tense 90 minutes, plus 6 minutes of injury, the game remained drawn going into extra time. That all changed in the first half of extra time when Englands Raheem Sterling was brought down in the box and awarded a penalty.
Stepping up, Harry Kane took the penalty kick, initially saved by Denmark’s keeper, who couldn’t keep his hands on the ball, allowing it to be rebounded into the back of the net by a quick-reacting Kane in the 103’ minute, giving England the lead.
Failing to equalise in the remaining time left, Denmark crashes out of the Euros, giving England a 2-1 win and a place in their first Euro final since 1966, against Italy, who won their semi-final match against Spain earlier.
The final of the Euro 2021 tournament will take place this Sunday (July 11) at Wembley Stadium, 8 pm and will be shown on both BBC & ITV.
