A historic day for England. The English team put an end to Denmark’s remarkable run in the semi-finals, thanks to a great Harry Kane, author of the winning goal, to finally win logically in extra time and reach the Euro final for the first time in its history (2-1, a.p.). Fifty-five years after their only title in a major competition, at the 1966 World Cup, England can dream of a new title, and a first Euro, against Italy on Sunday (9pm). Harry Kane may win the right to have his statue erected outside Wembley. Booed at the beginning of the Euro, the Tottenham striker keeps on making the Three Lions win, and he scored this Wednesday his fourth goal of the competition in the last three games.
Already author of a recital in the quarter against Ukraine (4-0) with his double, the English captain made Wembley incandescent by allowing his team to win at the end of a very tight match against the surprise of this Euro, Denmark, which will not offer a final to Christian Eriksen.
DAMSGAARD’SSUPERB OPENING GOAL WAS NOT ENOUGH
However, the number 10 had to hurriedly pack his bags for London, where he was invited by UEFA for the final, after a stroke of genius from Mikkel Damsgaard on the half-hour mark. While the home side started the game with a vengeance, the Danes responded well, still pressing and technically adept. The Sampdoria player took a free kick from 20 yards out and unleashed a superb right-footed shot to become the first player in the tournament to beat Jordan Pickford and cool down a hot stadium (0-1, 30th).
