LONDON (Dispatches) - England and their long-suffering fans finally have the chance to add another trophy to the 1966 World Cup after they overcame Denmark 2-1 in extra-time to reach the European Championship final for the first time.
Harry Kane’s goal, following up after his penalty had been saved, finally saw off battling Denmark to set up a Sunday showdown against Italy, also looking to shake off the ‘60s as they seek to win the title they last lifted in 1968.
On a night to remember in front of almost 60,000 roaring fans, England fell behind to Mikkel Damsgaard’s superb free kick, equalized with an own goal, dominated the game and then won it via their captain, albeit somewhat unconvincingly, in the 104th minute.
“Unbelievable - what a game though,” said Kane. “We dug deep and we got there when it mattered. We reacted really well - we’re in a final at home, what a feeling.”
England Charged Over
Fans Using Laser Pointer, Booing Anthem

The English FA has been charged with three offenses, all of which stem from fan behavior inside Wembley Stadium, after the Three Lions’ dramatic EURO 2020 semifinal win over Denmark .UEFA levied the charge after the England fans were heard loudly booing the Danish national anthem ahead of kickoff, shining a laser pointer into the face of Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel with Harry Kane standing at the penalty spot in extra-time, and lighting fireworks inside the stadium.
Each of the offenses carries a minimal fine.
