Baku bound: Denmark to face Czechs in Euro 2020 quarter-final clash

In the wake of the Danish dismantling of Wales, Czech Republic surprised the Netherlands to set up an improbable matchup

Quite a few Danes were undoubtedly nursing headaches this morning following yesterday’s 4-0 triumph in Amsterdam against Wales in the last-16 of Euro 2020.

And while they were eating their hangover pizzas today, they could watch the Czech Republic surprise the Netherlands 2-0 and book their quarter-final tickets against Denmark in Baku next Saturday.

The game kicks off at 18:00 and the winner will go to the semi-finals to play either England, Germany, Ukraine or Sweden.

It was utter pandemonium in Copenhagen last night as Denmark continued their Cinderella run by beating Wales 4-0.

Striker Kasper Dolberg, deputising for the injured Yusuf Poulsen, made his claim to start against the Czechs by scoring two goals inside the first 50 minutes.

Left wingback Joakim Mæhle continued his stellar tournament by scoring two minutes before the end, before Martin Braithwaite closed out the Welsh with a goal in injury time.

The Danes have now scored nine goals in three games – including a 4-1 thrashing of Russia – since their opening game 0-1 loss to Finland.

That game was of course best remembered for Christian Eriksen’s collapse on the pitch following a cardiac arrest in the 43rd minute.
