Over 57,000 fans packed Wembley Stadium to see England beat Denmark and secure a place to join Italy in the final, this Sunday 11 July. If you like the look of England to win the Euros, they are currently 4/5 favourites with 888 sport to lift the trophy for the first time!
There is now a real possibility, for the first time in many years that “ … it’s coming home” , considering the final will be played at Wembley.
The game was played in London's Wembley Stadium at 20:00 BST. The first two minutes included three fouls for several players on both sides,this was great news for bettors betting in the bookings markets that can be found within the 888sport bet builder bet.
England started the game in control, dominating most of the first thirty minutes. But Denmark got wise to this and gradually worked their way into the game. They read England well and started developing a nice counterattack to England's forward push. At 29’ Luke Shaw gets seen holding a Danish player, preventing him from getting to the ball, and this resulted in a free kick. Denmark's Mikkel Damsgaard makes a magnificent kick at goal looping over the England wall of defence and reaching the roof of the net. This spectacular goal put Denmark one goal up, but their lead did not last too long.
At 39’ an own goal pops into the net for Denmark. This goal was very misfortunate for Simon Kjaer of Denmark, who accidentally fired a pass from one of his own players into the Danish net. This tournament has produced a record number of own goals compared to any Euro championship before
England now senses a real chance of coming back at Denmark. At 55’ Harry Maguire almost provided the answer with another fantastic header at goal, but Kasper Schmeichel made a sensational save to deny him.
There is drama at 74’ and Harry Kane is brought down in the box after a challenge from a Denmark player. This could easily have been a penalty for England, depending on which way you viewed the tackle. But after checking VAR it is waved off by the referee.
The first half of added time did go England's way. They were knocking on the door on several occasions, including one great attempt at 98’ by substitute and fresh pair of legs, Jack Grealish. 12’ into added time provided another VAR needed for a tackle. This time from Dane Joakim Maehle, on a tackle that was not a blatant foul, and some could argue less of a foul than the one Kane was involved in earlier. After reviewing VAR, the referee awards a penalty, to England's delight. Kane steps up to take the penalty but misses as Schmeichel reads him well. However, Kane showed his predator instincts by latching on to the rebound and scoring!
Kane is now 6/4 with 888 sport to be anytime goalscorer in the Euro 2020 Betting Odds; for the upcoming game against Italy on Sunday
