Southampton’s Jannik Vestergaard played the full game as Denmark ran out 2-1 winners over Czech Republic to set up a EURO 2020 semi-final date with England at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Denmark played well in the quarter final hosted in Baku, Azerbaijan, and things got off to a great start as Southampton-linked central midfielder Thomas Delaney headed home from a corner early on.

The Danes scored another shortly before half time and Vestergaard played a big role in it, sliding a smart pass to Joakim Maehle who then delivered a superb cross for the on-form Kasper Dolberg to guide home and score.

Czech Republic came into the game more in the second half and Patrik Schick, who has caught the eye of many in this tournament, bagged his fifth goal of EURO 2020 to make it 2-1 and equal Cristiano Ronaldo in the Golden Boot race.

With Vestergaard at the back, Denmark held firm to see out the game and book their place in the EURO 2020 semi-final against England.

The Three Lions defeated Ukraine 4-0 after Denmark’s earlier triumph to set up this fixture.

England played Denmark twice in 2020, drawing 0-0 away, but falling to a 1-0 defeat at home.
