Euro 2020: Denmark fairy-tale continues with win over Czech Republic


 The fairy-tale continues for Denmark as they defeat the gallant Czech Republic with a 2-1 victory in Baku.


The match began in the unfamiliar humid climate of Azerbaijan, with all the elements of an intense quarter final, a replay of the fixture at Euro 2004 when the Czech's triumphed 3-0 against the Danes.


While both sides came out with intensity, with many committed challenges in the opening minutes, it was the Danes who were quick to prick the Czech's bubble.


Winning a corner in the 5th minute, it was the wing-back Stryger Larsen whose ball into the penalty area found the unmarked head of Thomas Delaney. The central-midfielder sent his header from the penalty spot past Vaclík into the bottom left corner. While it was a strong header, it was a cheap goal for the Czechs to concede and it sucked the atmosphere right out of the Czech side.
