Euro 2020: England make history as they qualify to final

England have reached their first International final since 1966 after beating Denmark 2-1 in the semi-finals of Euro 2020.

An extra-time penalty from England captain Harry Kane sent Gareth Southgate’s side to their first major final since 1966.

Denmark had the better of the first half and took the lead from a brilliant free-kick by Mikel Damsgaard after half an hour.

England then managed to hit straight back, as Denmark’s captain Simon Kjaer diverted a cross from Bukayo Saka into his own net from close range nine minutes later.
