If anything, his touch seemed too soft to be called a violation. But in the end, the referee who led the match still awarded a penalty to England in the 102nd minute.

Harry Kane Heading for the Golden Boot

Kane almost failed to put his name on the scoreboard. The tight defense from the Danish back line made it completely neutralized, so the Tottenham bomber struggled to produce golden opportunities.

Fortunately, England got a penalty in extra time. Kane’s shot was saved by Schmeichel, but he was lucky enough because the ball from the edge made the ball roll back towards him.

Thus, Kane has collected a total of four goals throughout this performance. One less to match the temporary top scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo. Kane also became the first English player to score four goals in the knockout stages since George Hurst in 1966.

Gareth Southgate’s Redemption

While still a career as a player, Gareth Southgate had brought England to the semifinals of the European Championship in 1996. He was the reason why the Three Lions failed to advance to the final round at that time.

Southgate is the only executioner who failed to do his job well when England duel with Germany in the shootout. In the end, the Three Lions fell 5-6.

It took Southgate 25 years to atone for his heaviest sin. It is also the first time England have reached the final of a major championship since 1966, where they won the World Cup.

England No Longer Running Out of Gasoline

This incident was clearly recorded in the journey of the Three Lions at the 2018 World Cup. The slogan ‘it’s coming home’ was loudly sung, then dimmed once they lost when they met Croatia in the semifinals.

Southgate learns from experience. The quality of English players who are increasingly abundant allows him to freely rotate. Substitutes such as Jack Grealish and Phil Foden were enough to help England beat Denmark.

Revenge Agenda

This victory makes England entitled to advance to the final round of Euro 2020. They have been waiting for Italy, who has been there since Wednesday (7/7/2021) yesterday after beating Spain on penalties.

The two countries had met on several occasions, such as the quarter-finals of Euro 2021 and the group stage of the 2014 World Cup. England lost in those two matches. The mission this time will be sweet because England can finish their revenge and win their first trophy in the European championship.
