It's England! Three Lions Are There

Last updated : 07 July 2021 By Three Lions

England's dream summer continues...The Three Lions are into the final of the European Championships after a nerve-shredding win against Denmark on Wednesday evening.

Captain Harry Kane sparked delirium amongst the majority of a near-60,000 crowd at Wembley when reacting first after Kasper Schmeichel had saved his penalty towards the end of the first period of extra-time.

The spot-kick award, for contact with Raheem Sterling, looked harsh but was England's reward for a spell of dominance, towards the end of normal time and into the extra half-an-hour, that showed the growing maturity of the team.

Denmark enjoyed dangerous periods and took the lead through a Damsgaard free-kick after half-an-hour, Jordan Pickford conceding his first goal of the tournament.

Shaky just before, and immediately after, the goal, England reacted well to force an equaliser through Kjaer's own goal after a dangerous Saka low cross.

Gareth Southgate's substitutions were spot on, in every sense, as England slowly turned the screw with Sterling an ever-present danger throughout the game.

Italy await as the nation grinds to a halt on Sunday evening.
