Harry Kane struck at an extra-time scored from a penalty kick in the 14th minute of extra time as England beat Denmark 2-1 at Wembley on Wednesday to reach the final of Euro 2020 where they will face Italy.

After a goalless second half, England secured a place in their first tournament final since 1966 when Raheem Sterling was ruled to have been brought down in the box by Joakim Maehle and although Denmark keeper Kasper Schmeichel pushed out Kane’s penalty, the England captain pounced to drive home the winner.

The England national football team first attempted to qualify for the finals of the tournament in 1964, having declined to enter in 1960. They first qualified in 1968, and have since participated in the finals on ten occasions– including in 1996, when they were the host nation and thus did not need to qualify. England has never won the European Cup.
