Match No. 1020 - Wednesday, 7th July 2021, 8:00pm

  • Assist: Bukayo Saka. "Sterling ought to have equalised from a Kane cross on 38 minutes only to blast straight at Schmeichel and then England did when Kane, once again dropping in a passing lane, released Saka. Sterling surely would have converted if Kjær did not." Simon Kjær, 39' (og) (38:17)
  • Assist: Raheem Sterling. "So there was Harry Kane, standing over the kick and, as everybody knows, he hardly ever misses. The England captain has a reputation for ice-cool efficiency for good reason. And yet he did miss this one, his side-footed shot read too easily by Kasper Schmeichel, who got his hand down to it. But the Denmark goalkeeper, who had earlier made saves to deny Sterling and Harry Maguire, did not get the ball away. He merely got it out and, eyes lighting up in relief, Kane gobbled up the rebound, lashing into the empty net." Harry Kane38th of 38 goals, 104' (103:43)

Notes

  • Semifinal SuccessEngland win only their second major tournament semifinal and first for 55 years.
  • Player InjuryMathias Jensen is caught on the foot by Kyle Walker at 105+2:59 in the first half of extra-time, moments before the half ends. He is unable to continue the game after the extra-time interval and as Denmark had made all their permitted subsitutions, they have to play on with 10 men.
  • Covid-19Reduced crowd due to the Covid-19 pandemic
  • Missed Penalty: Harry Kane3rd miss from 13th taken (76.9%). England's 132nd overall. "So there was Harry Kane, standing over the kick and, as everybody knows, he hardly ever misses. The England captain has a reputation for ice-cool efficiency for good reason. And yet he did miss this one, his side-footed shot read too easily by Kasper Schmeichel, who got his hand down to it. But the Denmark goalkeeper, who had earlier made saves to deny Sterling and Harry Maguire, did not get the ball away. He merely got it out and, eyes lighting up in relief, Kane gobbled up the rebound, lashing into the empty net."
