The first knockout match of the European Championships is underway in the Round of 16 stages. Group A and Group B runners up, Wales and Denmark are currently looking to secure their spot in the quarter finals of EURO 2020.
Denmark have taken a step towards the Quarter-finals as Kasper Dolberg’s strike from outside the box gave them a 1-0 lead after the first half. Wales have failed to respond with a goal themselves and we’re largely overpowered by their Danish players.
Kasper Dolberg scored from outside the box with a perfect curler
It all started in the 27th minute as Wales took hold of the ball and a mis-pass resulted in the loss of possession.
The ball was sent forward from midfield as Daehle sent it ahead and Damsgaard received it making a run into the enemy territory. He laid the ball on for Kasper Dolberg, who twisted and turned away from Mepham. He let fly a precise curled effort and the ball found the far corner past the Welsh keeper Danny Ward.
Wales have conceded yet again, as Denmark scored yet again just after the half time break. It all resulted as Kevin Moore lost possession after a challenge from Kjaer. Wales pleaded for a free-kick but the referee allowed play to continue.
Denmark played the ball forward as Martin Brathwaitte made a run from the right flank taking on Joe Rodon inside the penalty box. He made an inward pass and the ball fell to Neco Williams, who made a hash of the clearance.
His clearance fell for Kasper Dolberg inside the penalty box and the striker made no mistake and poked it in past Danny Ward, giving him no chance.
The scoreline stands 2-0 after the hour mark at Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam.
