ENGLAND beat Denmark 2-1 in the last four of Euro 2020 at Wembley tonight – and reached a major tournament final for the first time since 1966.
Gareth Southgate’s side now face Italy at the same venue in Sunday’s final.
The boys of ’66, who lifted the World Cup after a 4-2 defeat of West Germany at Wembley, became household names.
And now Harry Kane and the rest of the side have the chance to secure a similar place in the minds of England fans.
In an enthralling game Denmark took a first half lead with a free kick from Mikkel Damsgaard in the 30th minute.
The scores were level again just nine minutes later when Simon Kjaer put the ball into his net.
The match was on a knife edge for most of the 90 minutes. England finished the stronger but it was still 1-1 at full-time.
The breakthrough for England came 14 minutes into extra time when referee Danny Makkelie gave a penalty for minimal contact on Raheem Sterling.
Kane saw his spot kick saved by Kasper Schmeichel but saw the ball rebound nicely to his feet.
It was a chance he couldn’t miss and as the ball hit the back of the net the crowd went wild.
