England came back from a goal behind and held off a tenacious push from Denmark to qualify for the Euro 2020 final. In the summit clash, they will face Italy.
At Wembley Stadium, Mikkel Damsgaard’s brilliant 30th-minute free-kick silenced a partisan crowd. However, England leveled the score nine minutes later when Simon Kjaer scored into his own net.

As the game went into extra time, the Three Lions dominated the proceedings but were unable to break behind a solid Danish defense. After Raheem Sterling had bamboozled the Danish defense with a typically mazy run, England took the lead for the first time in the contest when Harry Kane guided his saved penalty into an unguarded net.

In the waning minutes of the game, Denmark threw the kitchen sink at England. However, an equalizer was not to be, as Gareth Southgate’s side held on to their victory thanks to tenacious defending and excellent game management. On Sunday, England will face Italy in a thrilling final to bring the Euro 2020 competition to a close.
