HISTORY MADE: England fans react to win over Denmark at Euro 2020
England fans react to the win over Denmark in the Euro 2020 semi-finals which takes them to the first major final for 55 years.
England came from behind to beat the Danes at Wembley after Mikkel Damsgaard had given them a huge scare by smashing in a free-kick. Bukayo Saka forced an own goal to level before Harry Kane scored the rebound off a penalty in extra-time to make it an unforgettable night.
Manager Gareth Southgate was ecstatic to lead England to the European Championship final for the first time in their history with the only other final being the World Cup in 1966.
“They’ve responded to what was always going to be a really challenging night,” Southgate said of his players.
“We were so smooth through the quarter-final and relatively unscathed through the second round. We knew that at some point we were going to concede and we would have to respond.
“Denmark have had an incredible tournament. I have got to give them huge credit. I thought they made it really difficult for us tonight. They pressed us so well, scored a fabulous goal – the boy is a super player.
“But I think on the balance of play when you look at the number of saves we forced the goalkeeper to make and long periods of the game where I felt we were the biggest threat, I think we deserved it.
“For our country, I’ve not heard this new Wembley like that ever and to be able to share that with everybody and share it with everybody at home is very special.”
We got some fan reaction to the extraordinary night, asking what stood out to them and who they thought was most impressive for England on the night in what was a pretty dominant performance.
