    Thank You.

    What a fine start to the knockout stages. Christian Eriksen must be so happy in his room, watching his teammates pull off one stunner after another. After two losses, Denmark are in the quarters with consecutive wins.

  • JUN 26, 2021 11:28 PM IST

    FULL-TIME

    FULL-TIME!! It's over. Denmark are through to the quarters as Bale's Wales run is over.

    88' GOOOOOALLLLLL!!! MAEHLE SCORES TO ADD A THIRD FOR THE DANES AND SECURE VICTORY! Jensen's cut back from the left finds the incoming Maehle. Bale can't track the run. Maehle tucks the ball into the near post.


  • JUN 26, 2021 11:12 PM IST

    CLOSE!

    83' CLOSE! Cornelius has been stellar ever since he has come on. He skips past a forest of Welsh challenges before Braithwaite's cross seeking Maehle is deflected off the post by Rodon


  • JUN 26, 2021 11:09 PM IST

    OVER

    80' FREE-KICK IN A DANGEROUS POSITION. Brooks is given a yellow for bringing down Cornelius after losing the possession to him. Braithwaite blazes the spot-kick over.

  • JUN 26, 2021 11:06 PM IST

    Wales also make changes

    Tyler Roberts and David Brooks in place of Moore and James.

  • JUN 26, 2021 11:06 PM IST

    Subs

    76' Yup, here it is. Larsen, who was stretching his hamstring as well, is replaced by Boilesen.

    Kjaer is replaced by Andersen.

  • JUN 26, 2021 11:03 PM IST

    Kjaer down

    75' Denmark will changes as skipper Kjaer is down and receiving treatment. Must be a hmstring issue

  • JUN 26, 2021 11:02 PM IST

    SAFE!

    74' Ramsey feeds Bales on the Wales counter. The latter bursts down the left and when he squares the ball, it is cleared away by Kjaer.

  • JUN 26, 2021 11:01 PM IST

    Euro 2020

    74' A little over 15 minutes plus stoppage time to go. And Denmark are in command.

    Dolberg subbed off

    70' Cornelius comes on for Dolberg. What a night he had.

  • JUN 26, 2021 10:54 PM IST

    JENSENNN

    65' SOO CLOOOOSEE!! Mathian Jensen's cross-cum-shot from the left floats over the defense line is drifting towards goal. Ward steps back in puts in a desperate dive but the ball almost kisses the far post on the way out for a goalkick,

  • JUN 26, 2021 10:52 PM IST

    Wales vs Denmark

    63' OVERRRR!!! Another long Bale throw is towards Rodon, it's headed more up than out as Allen tries his luck with a speculative drive. It's well hit but doesn't come down quick enough!

  • JUN 26, 2021 10:48 PM IST

    59' subs for both teams:

    WALES- Harry Wilson is on for Morrell.

    Class touch from Bale for Eriksen

  • JUN 26, 2021 10:40 PM IST

    VAR Check again. goal stands

    There was another VAR check to see if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up to the goal. All good

  • JUN 26, 2021 10:37 PM IST

    GOOOOOALLLL!! DOLBERG SCORES AGAIN

    48' GOOOOALL! Dolberg scores again. Long, long way back for Wales now. Denmark double their lead and it's that man again. Dolberg rifles the ball past Ward in the near post. What a poor goal from the Wales' point of view to concede.

    Wales were too busy with trying to get a foul on Moore against Kjaer. Referee plays on. Braithwaite, down the right, is released by Hojbjerg and his cross into the box is cleared away by Neco inside the box, but only as far as Dolberg

  • JUN 26, 2021 10:34 PM IST

    Peep! Let's get going again

    Second half begins as Denmark set the ball rolling. Will the Dragons roar back? Let's find out.

  • JUN 26, 2021 10:20 PM IST

    HALFTIME

    HALFTIME! Dolberg, the former Ajax player, keeps the Danes ahead of 1-0 ahead of Wales at the Amsterdam ArenA. After a strong opening 10 minutes for Wales, it was all Denmark.

    2 minutes added on

  • JUN 26, 2021 10:16 PM IST

    SAVE

    45' SAVE!!! Stryger Larsen's cross is flickon by Dolbeger, who threads the ball to Maehle deep on the left. He goes for goal at the near post but the ball is palmed behind for the corner. Nothing comes off it.

  • JUN 26, 2021 10:12 PM IST

    YELLOW FOR KIEFFER

    40' YELLOW! And you have to say it's a harsh one as Kieffer Moore is booked by the referee for impeding kjaer.

  • JUN 26, 2021 10:11 PM IST

    Sub

    Wales temporarily down to 10 men and Neco Williams comes on. What a sad end to the tournament for Connor Roberts

  • JUN 26, 2021 10:10 PM IST

    Injury

    38' INJURY! Joe Morrell looks for Connor Roberts down the right but his pass is over-hit. Roberts stretches as he looks to control and he might well have opened up his groin here.

  • JUN 26, 2021 10:06 PM IST

    CHANCE

    32' CHANCE! Denmark all over Wales now. Once again, it's Damsgaard. He plays a little one-two on the left before slipping it to Dolberg, whose shot from the byline is parried away by Ward

  • JUN 26, 2021 09:59 PM IST

    GOOOOOOALLLLLL

    27' GOOOOALLL!! DENMARK ON THE BOARD THROUGH DOLBERG. A great finish into the bottom right corner from the edge of the box. The stadium erupts. The VAR checked the goal whether Martin Braithwaite, who was next to the goalkeeper, was off-side. The goal stands.

    Coming to the goal, Maehle and Damsgaard combine brilliantly on the left and the latter then threads a beautiful pass to Dolberg, who takes a touch to his right, wide of the two defenders and finishes brilliantly.

  • JUN 26, 2021 09:54 PM IST

    BETTER

    23' CLEVER STUFF FROM DENMARK. Corner. Thomas Delaney sends a cropss into the Wales penalty area from the right after getting in behind. He tries to pick out Dolberg at the far post but Connor Roberts heads the ball out for a corner. Nothing comes off it

  • JUN 26, 2021 09:53 PM IST

    FOUL

    23' Mepham pushed Dolberg down while tussling for the ball.

  • JUN 26, 2021 09:52 PM IST

    UEFA Euro 2020 LIVE

    Third corner for Denmark.

  • JUN 26, 2021 09:50 PM IST

    First real spell for Denmark

    18' CORNER! Damsgaard fights and on the slide, feeds the ball to Dolberg, who fails to put in a threatening cross to the box. Eventually, Maehle is played to on the left and as he looks to square the ball from the byline, the ball is blocked by Connor Roberts. First corner for Denmark.

  • JUN 26, 2021 09:48 PM IST

    Where is Denmark?

    Possession, attempts, passing, control, everything. 17 minutes down and Wales are all over the Danes so far.

  • JUN 26, 2021 09:41 PM IST

    WIDDEEE

    10' WOW! Gareth Bale comes close to scoring. Bale sends a shot drifting wide of the far upright after Dan James had made room for him to shoot with a smart decoy run. It was a left-footed effort from Bale after cutting inside from the right but he didn’t get enough curl on it.

  • JUN 26, 2021 09:35 PM IST

    Wales vs Denmark Euro 2020 LIVE:

    4' FOUL! Delaney brings down Bale. Free-kick for Wales. Dan James' ball awkwardly bounces into the box, comes off Martin Braithwait foot and goes behind for Wales' first corner.

    PART OF OPTA STATS

    Wales have only lost two of their last 16 competitive matches in all competitions (W10 D4), although those two defeats have arrived in their last five such matches – they haven’t suffered consecutive competitive defeats since June 2019 (1-2 v Croatia and 0-1 v Hungary).

    Wales have now reached the knockout stages in all three of their appearances at major tournaments (EUROs & World Cup) – the 1958 World Cup, EURO 2016 and EURO 2020.

    Denmark recorded 59 shots in the group stages, with their average of 19.7 shots-per-game their highest on record in a major tournament (EUROs and World Cup). Having converted just one of their first 44 shots in this tournament (2%), Denmark scored with four of their last 15 shots against Russia last time out (27%).

    Wales have had a combined 97 shot attempts at EURO 2016 and EURO 2020, with 49 of those coming from Gareth Bale (33) and Aaron Ramsey (16), equating to just over half of their total efforts at goal.

    STATS- Presented by OPTA

    None of the 10 previous meetings between Wales and Denmark in all competitions have finished level, with Wales winning four to Denmark’s six. This is the first meeting between the sides since November 2018, with Denmark winning 2-1 in a Nations League match.

    Denmark have won each of their last three competitive meetings with Wales in a run stretching back to June 1999. This is the first meeting between the sides in a major tournament.

    Wales have lost both of their previous matches in Amsterdam, losing against the Netherlands in September 1988 (0-1) and June 2014 (0-2).

    Denmark became the first team in European Championship history to reach the knockout stages of the competition having lost their first two group games. This is their first appearance in the latter stages of the tournament since 2004, when they lost 3-0 to Czech Republic in the quarter-final.
