England beat Ukraine 4-0 to set up a Euro 2020 semi-final against Denmark at Wembley. Harry Kane and Harry Maguire scored the goals as England reached the last four for the second successive time in this tournament. Gareth Southgate’s side will face Denmark in the final after they defeated Germany 1-0 in Rome on Saturday.
Gareth Southgate’s England beat Ukraine 4-0 to reach the quarter-finals of the Under- World Cup. The Three Lions will now face Denmark in the last four at Wembley on Wednesday (20:00 BST kick-off).
LIFT-OFF FOR KANE
Gareth Southgate believes Harry Kane will have a significant impact on England’s Euro 2020 campaign. The striker scored in the 2-0 win over Germany to earn Gareth Southgate’s side a place in the quarter-finals of the World Cup. It was the catalyst for the real Kane to come alive in the tournament – and he punished Ukraine in trademark style.
He was a constant threat, his link with Sterling increasingly impressive, and has timed his return to peak form perfectly as England now stands only 90 minutes away from their first major final since they won the World Cup in 1966. Kane is the man defenses fear – and even the in-form Danes will regard this display as ominous.
ENGLAND’S SHAW THING
Gareth Southgate’s England faces Denmark in the Euro 2020 semi-final on Saturday. Manchester United’s Luke Shaw has had to fight to revive his England career. He was behind Ben Chilwell for some time and missed out on a start against Croatia. But he has made a magnificent contribution to England’s run to the semi-finals.
ENGLAND’S SHOW OF SQUAD STRENGTH
Jadon Sancho started his first game for the Three Lions since agreeing to a £73m move to Manchester United from Borussia Dortmund. The 21-year-old showed huge confidence and ambition in a timely reminder of what he can offer. Jack Grealish and Phil Foden were both left on the bench, as well as Chelsea’s Diego Costa.
