At the end of an indecisive meeting against the Czech Republic (1-2), Saturday afternoon, Denmark qualified for the semi-finals of the Euro and will challenge the winner of England-Ukraine.
After his feat against the Netherlands (2-0) in the round of 16, the Czech Republic had all his chances in the quarterfinals against the Denmark, who had swept Wales (4-0) in the previous round. It is indeed the teammates of Christian Eriksen (number 1 supporter from Copenhagen) who got their ticket to the last four of the competition by winning 2-1, Saturday in Baku.
Conqueror from the start, the “Danish Dynamite”, who dreams of repeating the 1992 epic, found the flaw on a corner from the 5th minute, Thomas Delaney opening the score with the head. The Czechs did not let it go, but Tomas Hole notably came across Kasper Schmeichel (21st and 34th) and Tomas Soucek did not shake the nets (19th and 35th) either.
This is Kasper Dolberg, already author of a double against the Welsh, who doubled the bet before half-time. The OGC Nice center-forward was very happy to push a sublime cross to the back of the net. Joakim Maehle from outside the right (42nd). 2-0 at halftime, the Danes then had the right end to challenge the winner of England-Ukraine next Wednesday at Wembley.
But the Czechs never gave up. Upon returning from the locker room, the inevitable Patrick Schick reduced the gap (49th), for his 5th goal of the competition. The Leverkusen player catches up with Cristiano Ronaldo in first place in the Euro scorers standings with 5 goals. However, they lacked a second wind to snatch the extension.
