Euro 2020: England make history as they beat Denmark to qualify for the final

The Three Lions of England ended the jinx of 55 years, following their 2-1 win over Denmark after extra time. 

Following an end to end football, it was Denmark who broke the deadlock in the half-hour mark, after a spectacular freekick from Mikkel Damsgaard.

Nine minutes later, England equalized, after Harry Kane sent in a lovely through ball to Bukayo Saka, before the Arsenal man’s low cross was deflected into the net by Denmark captain, Simon Kjaer.

After 90 minutes, the game went into extra time and England took the lead in the ninth minute of the 30, after a controversial penalty, won by Raheem Sterling. 

Captain, Harry Kane’s penalty was saved by Kasper Schmeichel, but the Tottenham Hotspur striker went for the rebounds and put the ball in the back of the net to give the Three Lions a 2-1 lead.

And after 120 minutes of football, England have now qualified for their first final since 1996, and will take on Italy on Sunday, July 11th 2021.
