England ends 55 years wait for Euro 2020 final

England faced a crowd of 65,000 at Wembley in the Euro 2020 semi-finals on Wednesday after the English team beat Denmark 2-1 in the semi-final to advance to their first major tournament in 55 years. Mikkel Damsgaard’s superb free-kick 30 minutes later threatened another semi-final disappointment for Gareth Southgate’s team, three years after they lost in the World Cup’s last four. But eight minutes later Simon Kjaer’s own goal and Harry Kane’s extra time saved their penalty by Kasper Schmeichel, which meant England would seek to win the European Championship for the first time when they meet Italy on Sunday’s final at Wembley.

The defeat ended Denmark’s run in the semi-finals, and they are still competing in a tournament after winning Euro 92. The Dane’s tournament began in a sad state when star midfielder Christian Eriksen suffered a heart attack in the opening game against Finland. Kasper Hjulmand’s men have since made an emotional wave, scoring the last four goals against Russia and Wales to reach the semi-finals.

England, however, has benefited greatly from six of their seven matches at home as they have been physically refreshed at a later stage. In almost two years, the host came out of nowhere for England’s game with the noise made by the biggest crowd. An irritated cross from Kane caught Raheem Sterling running towards the far post.

Denmark settled in after a failed start and began to put themselves in danger as Pierre-Emile Højbjerg shot straight at Joran Pickford as Martin Braithwaite and Damsgaard saw the effort fly in the face.
