Harry Kane was tasked with leading England to the Euro final for the first time in a match witnessed by over 60,000 spectators. Kane, playing in excellent form, scored in the 104th minute. England will finally face the Azzurri in the final on Sunday.

It was a beautiful sight to see Denmark reach the semi-finals after losing the first two matches of the group stage. The collapse of superstar Christian Eriksen in the first match against Finland was sad news for football fans.
