Harry Kane, England v Ukraine

Harry Kane scored twice as England eased into the UEFA 2020 semi-finals with a 4-0 win over Ukraine at the Stadio Olimpico, in Rome.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Kane gave England a dream start on four minutes with a composed finish after Manchester City‘s Raheem Sterling had threaded the ball into his path.

Luke Shaw provided the first of two assists with a 46th-minute free-kick that was headed home by fellow Manchester United defender Harry Maguire.

Shaw then combined with Sterling to set up Kane for the third with a textbook header before Liverpool‘s Jordan Henderson completed the scoring with his first goal for England from Mason Mount‘s delivery.

England will face Denmark at Wembley on Wednesday 7 July for a place in the UEFA 2020 final four days later.

Denmark edge past Czech Republic

Earlier, Denmark made sure of their semi-final spot by beating Czech Republic 2-1 at the Baku Olympic Stadium, in Azerbaijan.

Thomas Delaney put Denmark 1-0 up after four minutes and Southampton defender Jannik Vestergaard headed narrowly wide soon after.

Denmark doubled their advantage two minutes before half-time with a smart Kasper Dolberg volley from Joakim Maehle’s deft cross.

Czech Republic reduced the arrears on 49 minutes when West Ham United‘s Vladimir Coufal set up Patrik Schick for a cushioned finish past Kasper Schmeichel.

But the Leicester City goalkeeper was not to be beaten again as Denmark secured their place in the last four.
