Kane Leads England To Euro 2020 Final

England earned a 2-1 victory over Denmark in the semifinals of the 2020 European Championship to book a final clash against Italy on Sunday.

Mikelle Daamstaard opened the scoring for Denmark with a stunning free kick on the half-hour mark.

England clawed back into the game after Simon Kjaer diverted Bukayo Saka’s cross into his own net to end the first half 1-1.

The regulation time ended 1-1 and the tie went into extra time.

Raheem Sterling controversially earned a penalty for the Three Lions and Harry Kane converted from the spot to seal England’s first ever European Championship final.

England coach Gareth Southgate has showered encomiums on the players for breaking a 55-year-old duck and ending the semi finals run.

“This group of players have been fantastic to work with, their togetherness, those not in the team supporting their teammates, they deserve what’s happening,” he said.

“They’ve been a joy. We have one more step against a fantastic team who are unbeaten in however many matches.

“We know the size of the task. But what a brilliant moment for us. Let’s savour tonight, then we can think about that on the coach back to Burton.”

England will take on Italy in the final on Sunday at the Wembley Stadium.
