Euro 2020: Denmark progress to quarter-finals with an empathic win over Wales

Denmark thrashed Wales 4-0 to book a spot in the quarter-finals of the Euro 2020, as they continue to awe-inspiring journey in the tournament, which saw them almost lose key man Christian Eriksen in their opening game against Finland.

Kasper Hjulmand’s side led as Kasper Dolberg gave Kasper Hjulmand’s men the lead in the 27th-minute and doubled the lead after the break when he capitalized on a defensive error Wales in the 48th minute.

That goal deflated Wales, who never looked like clawing their way back into the game as Joakim Maehle made it three in the 88th minute before Martin Braithwaite struck to increase the tally to four just on the stroke of stoppage time, to all but compound the misery of Robert Page’s side, who failed to make an impact in the game and even got reduced to 10 men following, substitute, Harry Wilson, straight red for a late foul on Maehle.

The resolute Danes will now get ready for a last-eight tie with the winner of the round of 16 fixture between the Netherlands or the Czech Republic.
