By this point the British had resisted pressure at home and lived up to their role as favourites, with the Dane battling a play that went far beyond football – and he masterfully mastered the tension. The semi-final hit will be broadcast from London’s Wembley Stadium on ZDF and Magenta TV. Kick-off is this Wednesday at 9 p.m. teams in comparison.
England: Every start is slow. At least that’s how you can describe the British’s first two preliminary round matches. At the start of the European Championship, a goal from Raheem Sterling helped the Three Lions win against vice world champions Croatia, but did not perform well in the remake of the 2018 World Cup semi-finals. Things should have improved in the second game against old rivals Scotland – but against the Underdogs, coach Gareth Southgate’s team failed to go past a 0–0 draw. There was also noise and whistling for the first time at Wembley.
Denmark: The football world will not forget these pictures. During the first half of the Danish opening game against Finland in Copenhagen, Christian Eriksson suddenly collapses, leaving the star player motionless on the grass. Rescuers who are called in must revive him, as is later confirmed. Ericsson’s teammates form a security circle around their friend and paramedics, Ericsson’s wife runs across the lawn. The game would be continued at a later stage after discussions with players and coaches, which was heavily criticized in the following days. Finland won 1-0 – the only important message in the evening: Ericsson is available again, he survives.
England: After a goalless draw against Scotland, savvy supporters expect a playful escalation. Against the Czech Republic, the Three Lions are the group winners and will continue the tournament at Wembley – they are only allowed to play in the first round of 16 at Holy Ground. Sterling hit again, and Southgate’s team went on to win again with a 1–0 drought. Again not a great achievement. But then again without scoring a goal. And it continues in London.
Denmark: Coach Kasper Hjölmund’s team follows a 1:2 chase against Belgium after an early loss against Finland. Denmark is facing the end. But in the third group game they were successful 4–1 against Russia – and Finland lost to Belgium at the same time. “The Danes gave us wings. You gave us so much love. Without them none of this would have been possible,” said Hujulmand after reaching the last sixteen. 25,000 spectators at Parken Stadium – Ericsson’s thoughts are always with him. These footballers made their way into Dane’s hearts,” said Hjulmand. “You gave some idols to the girls and boys in the house. And I’m very happy about that.”
Round of 16:
England: It was the end of a national blow. For the first time in 55 years, England celebrated victory against Germany in the knockout rounds of a major tournament. A 2–0 victory at London’s Wembley Stadium brought victory to the entire nation. “No, it’s not a dream. We really beat Germany”, headlined the Daily Express. Sterling and captain Harry Kane’s goals set the game for the Three Lions, whose fans celebrated a huge party at Wembley Stadium. This wave of excitement should take England far enough – in the opinion of fans, if possible – until the final of the European Championship on 11 July.
Denmark: The Dane was also carried by his fans through the first knockout game. Many of the 16,000 spectators in Amsterdam were Danes who enthusiastically celebrated their team after their highest victory in the tournament. Kasper Dolberg scored with a double, Joachim Mahle and Martin Braithwaite scored against the weak Welsh. “It’s hard to believe that this is actually a reality,” said coach Kasper Hjulmund after a clear 4-0 victory, who dreamed of repeating Denmark’s 1992 European Championship coup.
Way to Wembley (back):
England: Surprisingly, by far the easiest thing to do was waiting for the Three Lions in the quarterfinals. It was a surprise that Ukraine also made it to the best eight teams round. Former world-class striker Andrei Shevchenko’s team then seemed flat against England. Goals from Kane, Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson helped England win 4-0 in Rome. In the time of the semi-finals, Kane is also in top form.
Denmark: The journey was difficult. Dane had to go to Azerbaijan – and do without thousands of fans in Baku. It was then possible to celebrate more with the fans who traveled with him. The Hjulmund team, who occasionally dominated in 2:1 against the Czech Republic, deserves victory in the end. Ericsson was sure to see that too. “Christian wrote last night that he is very proud of us,” said Borussia Dortmund’s Thomas Delaney. “We keep it in our hearts.” Before the semi-finals, it was announced that UEFA had officially invited Ericsson and his wife to the final. One answer remains.
