Danish fans dance in rejoice as their team advances to Euro 2020 semi-final

Denmark beat the Czech Republic 2-1 in a nervy European Championship quarter-final on Saturday (July 3) to reach the last four of the competition for the first time since they won the title in 1992. 

Denmark opened the scoring in the fifth minute when Thomas Delaney scored with a downward header from a corner kick and the Danes doubled the lead just before halftime when Kasper Dolberg fired home from an inch-perfect cross from Joakim Maehle. 

Czech striker Patrik Schick struck four minutes after the restart, guiding a Vladimir Coufal cross into the bottom corner for his fifth goal of the tournament to go level with Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo at the top of the scoring charts. 

The Czechs were in the ascendancy in the second half but Denmark held on for the win and a semi-final date at Wembley where Kasper Hjulmand’s side will play either Ukraine or England — who play later on Saturday in the last-quarter-final in Rome.
