The game went to extra-time with Harry Kane scoring the winning goal when England were awarded a penalty due to contact between Denmark’s Joakim Maehle and Raheem Sterling in England’s penalty box.

The squad now face Italy in the Euro 2020 final on Sunday back at Wembley Stadium.

It’s the first time England have made it to a tournament final since 1966.
