England v Denmark: Three Lions reach Euro 2020 final after Harry Kane scores in extra time

England have landed a place in the Euro 2020 final, after beating Demark 2-1 in an incredible semi-final clash at Wembley.

The Three Lions took the lead after Harry Kane scored a penalty rebound goal in the first half of extra time.

The skpper’s penalty was saved by Denmark’s goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, but Kane jumped on the rebound, striking it into the back of the net, making the score 2-1.

Denmark had gone 1-0 in the 30th minute with a stunning free-kick courtesy of youngster Mikkel Damsgaard, who curled in the ball from 25 yards after Luke Shaw fouled Andreas Christensen.

The strike came just minutes after England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford set a new all-time national record during the first-half, having gone 721 minutes without conceding a goal, surpassing the previous best set by Gordon Banks, which included the first four games of the 1966 World Cup.

However, moments later, England regained composure with Bukayo Saka slotting in a neat pass aimed at Raheem Sterling, but it resulted in an own goal from Danish captain Simon Kjaer, making it 1-1 at half time.

Needless to say, people’s emotions were all over the place.

There was plenty of excitement in the second half, including when Harry Maguire almost gave England the lead 10 minutes after the break, but there were no more goals and the game went into extra time.

Which fans were rather nervous about...

But England managed to hold on to their lead for the extra 30 minutes – and will now face Italy on Sunday.
