Last Updated on 21/06/2024 by

After being beaten to a 1-1 draw by Denmark, England was unable to secure their berth in the last-16 round of the Euro 2024 tournament with a match to spare.

There was a goal scored by Harry Kane for Gareth Southgate’s team in the 18th minute of the match, but Denmark equalized the score with a spectacular shot from Morten Hjulmand in the 34th minute of the match.

Because of this result, England is currently in first place in Group C with four points, placing them two points ahead of Denmark, who is in second place, and Slovenia, who is in third place, before the two remaining matches in the section.

Southgate’s team is still in a solid position to advance to the knockout phase of the competition, despite the fact that they were disappointed with both the outcome and the performance.

After a clever move by Hojlund, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg had a half-chance for Denmark within the first thirty seconds of the game. However, England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was able to prevent his shot from going in.

In the early exchanges, England’s Kyle Walker suffered an ankle injury; nonetheless, he was able to continue playing, which appeared to be an unlikely occurrence when replays initially showed his foot giving way on the ground, which continued to rip up from the impact.

In the thirteenth minute, Phil Foden had a half-chance to score after working his way into a shooting position within the Denmark box. However, he failed to capitalize on the opportunity and instead sent his shot over the crossbar.

The breakthrough for England came in the 18th minute, when Kane slid the ball into the bottom corner from close range. This came about as a result of a terrible mistake made by Victor Kristiansen, who allowed Walker to break into the Denmark box. The ball eventually came for Kane, and the Bayern forward, as was to be expected, took advantage of the opportunity.

As a result of a deft flick from his club and international teammate Eriksen, Hojlund was just unable to get his feet in order inside the England box in time, which led to Denmark enjoying a solid spell in the period that followed.

It was a magnificent hit from Hjulmand, the midfielder, who is reported to be of interest to Manchester United, reaching the bottom corner with an effort that came off the inside of the post. The goal that brought the Danes to a tie in the match occurred in the 34th minute of the match.

The Danes were in complete control throughout the match. Hjulmand had another shot deflected wide late in the first half, Joachim Andersen sent a header over the bar, and Hojbjerg tested Pickford. It was only fair that Denmark’s team went into halftime tied.

It would have been ideal for England to get off to a quick start in the second quarter, but unfortunately, that plan did not work out. Denmark appeared to be the more productive team throughout the entire match.

While Kasper Schmeichel of Denmark had to make a double save to deny Bukayo Saka and Declan Rice, the latter of whom beat him to a bouncing ball and headed into the sidenetting.

Following that, Foden hit a shot that hit the post, and England appeared to be the more dangerous team. At that point, it was time for Denmark to take a back seat as the match was getting closer to its last thirty minutes of play.

The Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins entered the field alongside Jarrod Bowen and Eberechi Eze in the 72nd minute, which resulted in Kane, Foden, and Saka all leaving the game after finding it impossible to make their impact for extended periods of time. Schmeichel had to be at his best in order to prevent Watkins from scoring.

The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder put up a terrific display in Frankfurt, which resulted in Pickford being called into action to prevent Hojbjerg from scoring at the other end of the field.

Towards the end of the match, Christensen headed a shot over the crossbar for Denmark. Hojbjerg then struck a shot that was just short of the target. England’s goal was under siege in the later minutes of the match; however, neither team was able to score a second goal, and the points were split on Thursday night.
