Ultra-dominant against a powerless Ukraine (4-0), England offered itself a place in the semi-final, where it will face Denmark at home, at Wembley. Harry Kane (double), Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson offered a comfortable success to the Three Lions, who still haven’t conceded a goal in this Euro!
Italy dominates Belgium
How far will this team go? The Italian team has managed the perfect match to dominate Belgium, one of the favorites of this Euro, in the quarterfinals (2-1). Nicolo Barella and Lorenzo Insigne allowed the Squadra Azzurra to fold the match quickly, despite some final scares. In the semifinals, it will face Spain. For Belgium, it is a terrible slap.
This time, the penalty shootout was fatal to the Swiss
Spain put an end to the Swiss dream. While the Nati, heroic in defense and with ten against eleven for more than half an hour, managed to pull off another penalty shootout, this time they fell short, missing three attempts, before Mikel Oyarzabal qualified Spain for their first Euro semifinal since 2012 (1-1, 1-3 t.a.b).
Where will Denmark stop?
Buoyed by an outpouring of enthusiasm since the near-drama that affected Christian Eriksen in the first game, the Vikings advanced to the last four for the first time since their surprise win in 1992. Two goals from Thomas Delaney (5th) and Kasper Dolberg (42nd) ensured Kasper Hjulmand’s side were through by half-time. Despite the fifth goal of the Euro of the amazing Patrik Schick (49th), the Czech Republic could not turn the situation around. AF
