The Danes booked their place in the last four of the tournament for the first time in almost three decades and now aim to reach the final.

Denmark are not yet done in Euro 2020 after their “insane” win over the Czech Republic, says captain Simon Kjaer.

A goal apiece from Thomas Delaney and Kasper Dolberg in either half proved enough for Denmark to seal a 2-1 win against the Czech Republic in the Euro 2020 quarter-finals.

Kasper Hjulmand’s side were far from their best in the group stages, losing two of their three group fixtures, but have been in top gear in the knockout stages. They made history by becoming the first team ever to score four goals in consecutive matches in the competition with 4-1 and 4-0 wins against Russia and Wales respectively.

England or Ukraine will now stand in their path to reaching the final and, optimistically, historic glory.

“It’s huge, this is insane,” Kjaer said after Denmark’s victory at the Baku Olympic Stadium, per Goal.

“We aimed to go to Wembley and now we will. But I would be lying if I said we’re OK with that.

“Now we have to enjoy it and recover, but we also have a match in four days.”
