Euro Cup 2020: Two more spectacular matches were played in the Euro Cup 2020 late on Saturday night. In the third quarter-final, 1992 Euro champions Denmark defeated the Czech Republic 2–1 to secure a place in the semi-finals. Apart from this, England, one of the title contenders, defeated Ukraine 4-0 in the fourth quarter-final match to get a ticket to the semi-finals. On July 8, there will now be a competition between Denmark and England to reach the final.
For Denmark, Thomas Delaney scored in the 5th minute and Kasper Dolberg scored in the 42nd minute. Patrick Schick cut the lead in the 49th minute at the start of the second half. Denmark soon made a comeback and took a 2–1 lead in the match.
Denmark had little possession of the ball. The Czech Republic retained possession of the ball for 55 percent of the time, while the Danes could retain possession of the ball only 45 percent of the time. However, there were more shots on the target of the Dane team. The Czech Republic had five shots in its account while the Danish team shot on seven occasions.
It is a great feeling for Denmark to reach the semi-finals as their star player Christian Eriksson was almost on the verge of dying of cardiac arrest on the pitch in their opening match against Finland. However, the hard work of the medical staff paid off and they were saved.
Harry Kane’s stellar performance continues
England captain Harry Kane continued his stellar performance against Ukraine as well. England entered the semi-finals by defeating Ukraine 4-0 in a one-sided match. Captain Harry Kane scored two goals for England and left no chance for Ukraine to make a comeback in the match.
Already, England’s easy victory in this match was being speculated and after the start of the match, the same was seen. In the fourth minute of the match, Harry Kane scored a goal to give England the lead. However, only one goal was scored in the first half.
But in the second half, England scored a goal as soon as it came. To increase the pressure on Ukraine, Harry Kane scored his second goal of the match in the fifth minute of the second half to give England a 3-0 lead. The match was now out of Ukraine’s hands. England scored another goal in the 63rd minute to take the lead 4–0 and after the end of 90 minutes, they managed to secure a big win.
