One more game will decide the Euro 2020 finalists after Tuesday produced one winner despite excellent displays by both Spain and Italy.
In a pulsating encounter, both side gave impressive accounts of themselves and 442gh.com has provided the lowdown on Tuesday’s action plus what to expect today.
Jorginho’s nonchalant penalty sealed Italy’s place in the Euro 2020 final after the semi-final against Spain finished 1-1 after extra-time.
Federico Chiesa opened the scoring in the 60th minute, with Alvaro Morata equalising 20 minutes later and neither side finding a breakthrough before the dreaded penalty shootout.
Early misses from Manuel Locatelli and Dani Olmo cancelled each other out before Morata, Spain’s fifth taker, crucially missed his spot-kick. Chelsea’s Jorginho then calmly sent Unai Simon the wrong way, sealing a 4-2 shootout victory and a place in the final.
ENGLAND vs DENMARK (7 PM GMT)
England will eye their first major final appearance since 1966 when they face Denmark in the second semifinal of EURO 2020.
The Three Lions have been efficient and less adventurous so far this tournament. They remain the only team yet to concede a goal so far and go into the clash with the Danes with confidence sky rocketing.
Gareth Southgate has shown tactical flexibility as manager and will adopt a shape and approach that will help his side’s chances against their opponents.
Denmark, winners of the European Championship in 1992 are no puhsovers though. They have drastically improved after the group stages and have gotten to where they are now on pure merit.
Denmark boss Kasper Hjulmand could name an unchanged starting line-up for the third game despite the head coach admitting that fatigue is a concern.
England are favorites but they will be made to work hard for it by the Danes who are unwavering in belief that 1992 can be relived.
