England reached their first Euro 2020 final after defeating Denmark 2-1 (AET) in a tense semi-final.
The Three Lions needed extra time to get past their brave opponents, but eventually found their way with a goal from Harry Kane after smashing a rebound from his missed penalty.
Denmark took the lead when Mikkel Damsgaard hit a magnificent free kick past Jordan Pickford in the first half of regulation time.
But England were back on level when Simon Kjaer put the ball into his own net after a cross from Bukayo Saka.
And in the opening period of extra time, Kane saw his penalty effort saved by Kasper Schmeichel, who couldn’t reach his rebound.
Here are the player ratings of the nervous Wembley clash.
JORDAN PICKFORD 6
The mistakes resurfaced again with my wild kick. The Danish opener was beaten for the first time in six games. Some sharp stops too
KYLE WALKER 7
Made brilliant, timely interceptions in the opening against the dangerous Danish duo. Best display to date
JEAN PIERRES 7
I watched how hard it is to usually calm down – even under the cosh. His partnership with Stones continues to flourish
HARRY MAGUIRE 8
Tested more than ever to this day by the Danish attack, but overall he overcame it all. Rejected by Schmeichel for 50 minutes
LUKE SHAW 6
The man of the moment shone in the opening stages but gave a set piece that gave Denmark the lead with a foul on Christensen
KALVIN PHILLIPS 6
Started like a train, but quickly stowed and overtaken on the toughest exit of the tournament. Never stopped, however
DECLAN RICE 7
Half of the midfielder’s engine room smooth but normal service was lacking within 45 minutes of opening. Improved over time.
BUKAYO SAKA 8
The only change from Rome, the Arsenal teenager did nothing to suggest the blunderer was wrong. Killer cross killer for crucial leveler.
MASON ASSEMBLY 7
Delivery to set pieces was not great at first but so busy in all parts of Wembley. Non stop and smart with it.
RAHEEM STERLING 7
Combo animated with Shaw and was also the man who entered the danger zone when he was released by Kane – forced equalizer against his own goal.
Harry kane 7
Almost the tournament assist after six minutes. Wrestled before his son and passed frees Saka for an equalizer assist.
Grealish (for Saka 68) 6
Trippier (for Grealish 106) 6
Henderson (Rice 95) 6
Foden (Mont 95) 6

KASPER SCHMEICHEL 8
The Leicester stopper had nothing to do until 37 minutes, then produced a stun to deny Sterling and Maguire in the second half
ANDREAS CHRISTENSEN 7
Champions League winner Chelsea had their work cut out for them against Sterling and Shaw but won a free kick for a breakthrough.
SIMON KJAER 7
The Danish skipper was menacing on set pieces and calm at the back – until the relief attempt ended in his own net. As hard as iron
JANNIK VESTERGARD 7
The Giant Saints defender made a crucial early interception on Mount and has proven to be much better than previously thought in the Premier League.
JENS STRYGER 7
Always there to support the defense with quality challenges. Proved a pillar at the back for the English strikers to overcome
PIERRE-EMILE HOJBJERG 6
The Tottenham midfielder sat down and interrupted England’s flow as best he could – and had Denmark’s first attempt in the 15th minute.
THOMAS DELANEY 7
Neat, tidy in everything he did, he helped the Danes tame the midfield scrap before the break as he led by example
JOAKIM MAEHLE 7
Danish midfielder terminator slamming tackles and driving inspiration for the team England failed to verify at times
MARTIN BRAITHWAITE 7
Barcelona and the former Boro striker should have punished Pickford’s foul, but speed and flanking skill posed problems.
KASPER DOLBERG 6
A scorching hitman chasing Golden Boot was a revelation during the tournament – and a real nuisance throughout last night
MIKKEL DAMSGAARD 7
Dangerman with allure in the left flank to burn and still joining the front line. Coiled up an inch wide before the opening of the free kickr
