England beat Denmark at the Euro 2020 semifinal 2

Denmark dominated the first half and took the lead after half an hour thanks to a fantastic free-kick by Mikel Damsgaard. However, England equalized nine minutes later when Denmark's captain Simon Kjaer diverted a cross from Bukayo Saka into his own net from close range. 

 

England came the closest in a tight second half, with Kasper Schmeichel making a fantastic one-handed stop from a Harry Maguire header. The game proceeded into extra time as neither team was able to break the tie. 

 

England pushed Denmark back to the starting period. Raheem Sterling then won a controversial penalty from a lunging challenge by Joakim Maehle in the Danish area. The VAR team reviewed the referee’s decision and it stood. Danish goalie Schmeichel saved Harry Kane’s spot-kick, only to see Kane convert the rebound.  

 

Thanks to that amazing kick, England defeated Denmark 2-1 afterward. This was the first time Gareth Southgate’s side winning a Euro semifinal game to step closer to the highest title. They will face Italy in the last game on the upcoming Sunday.
