England 2-1 Denmark: England reach their first international final since 1966

England are through to their first major final since 1966.


Denmark scored first, before England equalised in the first half
It was 1-1 at full-time, England captain Harry Kane scoring from the penalty spot in extra time

Harry Kane struck an extra-time winner as England beat Denmark 2-1 at Wembley to reach the final of Euro 2020 where they will face Italy. The Danes had taken a 30th-minute lead when Mikkel Damsgaard stunned the home crowd with a brilliant free kick from 25 metres out which flew into the net. England drew level nine minutes later when Kane’s clever pass allowed Bukayo Saka to get behind the Danish defence and his low ball across was turned into his own net by Simon Kjaer. After a goalless second half, England secured a place in their first tournament final since 1966 when Raheem Sterling was ruled to have been brought down in the box by Joakim Maehle and although Denmark keeper Kasper Schmeichel pushed out Kane’s penalty, the England captain pounced to drive home the winner.

They’ll face Italy at Wembley for the Henri Delauney Trophy on Sunday.
