EURO 2020: Denmark beat Czech Republic 2-1 to advance to semi-finals

  • Thomas Delaney’s early header and Kasper Dolberg’s volley put Denmark ahead
  • However, Patrik Schick halved the deficit from close range for a tense finish
  • Denmark will now face England or Ukraine at Wembley for a place in the final

Goals from Thomas Delaney and Kasper Dolberg give Denmark 2-1 win over Czech Republic to book a spot at the semi-finals.

Thomas Delaney put them ahead after only five minutes when he headed in unmarked from a corner and centre forward Kasper Dolberg doubled their advantage shortly before half time.

The Czechs were rewarded for their strong start to the second half when Patrik Schick nabbed his fifth goal of the competition, drawing him level with Cristiano Ronaldo in the race for the Golden Boot.

But they were unable to beat Kasper Schmeichel again, and the Leicester City goalkeeper still has a chance of emulating his dad Peter, who was part of the Danish team which won Euro 1992 after being called in as late replacements for Yugoslavia.

The Danes will now face either England or Ukraine at Wembley for the semi-finals.
