Dolberg hits brace as Denmark thrash Wales 4-0 to reach Euro 2020 quarter-finals


By Mukwuzi Joseph

Denmark proved they have the quality and tactical nous to go deep into Euro 2020 with a 4-0 win over Wales in Amsterdam, which saw Rob Page’s side crash out at the last-16 stage. Gareth Bale and co. were unable to repeat their feats of five years ago, but Denmark, having lost their first two games and had to cope with the emotional trauma surrounding Christian Eriksen’s cardiac arrest, now look like Euro 2020’s dark horses. 

Defeats against Finland and Belgium put Denmark on the brink of elimination, but back-to-back wins have sent them into the last eight, where they will face either the Netherlands or the Czech Republic. Kasper Dolberg, who came in for the injured Yussuf Poulsen, stole the show with an impressive brace which showed just how much strength in depth the Euro ‘92 champions have. Joakim Maehle and Martin Braithwaite added one each late on either side of a Harry Wilson red card in a result that didn’t flatter the Danes, as Wales came up short.
