Last night the Three Lions beat Denmark at Wembley.


The score at half-time was 1-1: Damsgaard’s beautiful free-kick in the 30th minute put the Danish team ahead, but then his teammate Kjaer scored an own goal 9 minutes later. At the end of the match, the English team was entitled to a penalty: captain Harry Kane could not outplay Danish goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel from the point, but then successfully netted the rebound. 

The controversial foul was checked by the VAR system, but still raised debates in the football community.

This night Webley was attended by 66000 fans, mainly supporting the English team. The game was followed by crowded celebrations.

This is the first final of a major tournament for the English national football team in 55 years.

In the post-match interview, English coach Gareth Southgate lauded his players and called the Danish team a fantastic opponent. 

“This tournament, we’ve been adaptable and we’ve changed at the right times when we needed to, we’ve progressed in the games in the right time, and now we’ve got a real challenge in the final”.

England is bound to meet Italy in the finals. The game will take place at Wembley on July 11.
