ENG vs DEN: England will play the second Semi-Final of Euro 2020 against Denmark at their home turf in Wembley Stadium.
England are the biggest contenders for the championship title as they’re walking into this encounter with a 4-0 win that came against Ukraine in the Quarter Finals.
Harry Kane opened the account for England with an emphatic finish within just 4 minutes into the game. The match was smoothly progressing up until Harry Maguire made it worse for Ukraine with a beautiful header in the back of the net.
A few minutes later, The Three Lions tripled their lead with Kane scoring the second goal in the form of a header off Luke Shaw’s assist. Substitute Jordan Henderson came in and scored a beauty by a header to make it 4-0 and knocked out Ukraine by all means.
Denmark on the other hand played underdogs Czech Republic. Thomas Delaney for Denmark began the proceedings for Denmark with a goal in the 5th minute and was later doubled by Kasper Dolberg’s beautiful goal.
Patrik Schick’s gallant effort did help Czech coming as close as 2-1 but ended up on the losing side. With that goal, Schick became the second-highest goal scorer of this year’s Euro.
Undoubtedly, England will be the favourites in this upcoming Semi-Final clash.
