However, the game turned on its head when Mikkel Damsgaard played in former Ajax star Kasper Dolberg and he finished brilliantly from the edge of the box to give Denmark a first half lead. He continued from where he stopped as he netted a second to extend the lead.

Barcelona striker Martin Braithwaite made it 4-0 and sent the Danes into the quarter finals as they became the first team to score four goals in consecutive matches in the competition history. Wales finished the game with 10-man as Harry Wilson was shown a straight red card for a tired tackle late in the second half.
