Tottenham Hotspurs forward Harry Kane netted twice as England eased to a 4-0 victory over Ukraine at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday to set up a Euro 2020 semi-final date with Denmark on home soil.
Kane was back to his predatory best after struggling in the group stage, following up his goal against Germany by poking home a superb pass from Raheem Sterling after only four minutes.
That was England’s earliest European Championship goal since Michael Owen against Portugal in 2004. The Three Lions added two more quickfire goals to their tally in the first five minutes of the second half through Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire and Kane.
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson’s first international goal gave Gareth Southgate further reason to cheer as his side kept their fifth clean sheet in a row from the start of the tournament sealing a comfortable win for the night.
England will now meet Denmark in the semi finals clash.
Elsewhere, Denmark’s impressive and emotional Euro 2020 campaign continued as they marched on to the semi-finals courtesy of a 2-1 victory over the Czech Republic in Baku.
Since losing their talisman Christian Eriksen, the Danes have gone from strength to strength in the tournament.
