The teams set a fairly high pace from the very beginning of the game. The British kept the ball longer, while the Danes counterattacked very dangerous. And they deservedly took the lead – Damsgor shot a free-kick perfectly. England got the first goal at Euro and the Southgate guys rushed to recoup. And they soon succeeded. Kane perfectly brought Saka into the penalty area, he shot through and Kjaer, in the fight against Sterling, sent the ball into his own net.
In the second half, the team played more carefully. But still, both Pickford and Schmeichel were constantly on their toes. But in the main time, nobody managed to score. In the first extratime, the British managed to earn a penalty - Sterling was shot down in the penalty area. Harry Kane approached the ball, but Schmeichel coped with his kick from the “point”. But Harry was the first to finish off and, with a shot on an empty goal, brought England to the Euro final.
The 2020 UEFA European Championship final between England and Italy will take place in London on 11 July.

England and Denmark have played 23 times. Historically ahead of the British - 13 wins against 5. But for example, in the last League of Nations, where the teams were in the same group, the Danes were stronger - 0: 0 at home and 1: 0 away.
As CNN wrote, after a manic start, the game settled down with Denmark sitting back and England doing most of the attacking. Sterling had a couple of half-chances as the home support roared on the men in white.
All of England's good early work was almost undone by a moment of madness from goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
After a routine save and under no pressure at all, his weak throw was easily intercepted but Denmark just couldn't work a space to shoot into what would have been an empty net.
After that, the Danes grew into the game and took the lead through a magical Damsgaard free-kick on the half-hour mark. The set-piece was near perfect, whipped over the wall and giving Pickford no chance of saving it.
For Denmark, which won Euro 92, this has been an extraordinary tournament. The team, and nation, was shaken when its talisman Eriksen collapsed on the field during its opening group game against Finland.
Italy awaits and is likely to present England with it sternest test yet at Euro 2020.
