Kane: ‘What an opportunity England have’
Harry Kane is eyeing history at Wembley after his goal fired England into their first European Championship final with a 2-1 extra-time win over Denmark in the semi-finals.
England reached the Euro 2020 final after defeating Denmark at Wembley on Wednesday evening.
Gareth Southgate’s side went into the game as favourites but fell behind after 30 minutes. Denmark were given a free-kick in a threatening position ad Mikkel Damsgaard’s effort rocketed into the net.
England battled back though and restored parity 10 minutes later when Simon Kjaer put the ball past his own goalkeeper.
Neither side were able to score in the second half as the game went to extra-time. England had the better of the play and they were given a golden opportunity to take the lead when they were given a penalty.
Raheem Sterling went down inside the box and the referee pointed to the spot. Harry Kane saw his effort saved by Kasper Schmeichel but the rebound kindly fell back to him and he made no mistake at the second time of asking.
Southgate’s side would hold on to reach their first major final in 55 years. England will play Italy in the final at Wembley on Sunday evening as they look to end that long trophy drought.
