Euro 2020: Denmark beat Wales, enter quarterfinals

June 27, 2021 07:48 AM

Denmark marched on to the quarter-finals of Euro 2020 on Saturday as Kasper Dolberg scored twice in an emphatic 4-0 win over Wales before an exultant travelling support at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam.

Kasper Dolberg’s brace and a goal each from Joakim Maehle and Martin Braithwaite took Denmark to the huge victory.

Martin Braithwaite scores his first Euro 2020 goal and he gets the goal after a long VAR check for offside. Joakim Maehle scores Denmark’s third off a stinging shot.

Kasper Dolberg scores his second three minutes into the second half to put Denmark 2-0 up.

Wales started the match brilliantly and had a couple of close chances with the goal as well but Denmark grew into the game and scored through Dolberg in the 27th minute after some neat team play. After the goal, Wales struggled to even get into the Denmark penalty area while Denmark nearly made it 2-0 towards the end of the half.

Aside from the universal goodwill towards Denmark following Eriksen's collapse, a ban on travellers from the United Kingdom entering the Netherlands meant there were very few Welsh supporters inside the stadium.
