What a strike! Damsgaard takes a short run-up and then smashes a curling, dipping free-kick over the wall and into the net from 25 yards! Pickford, seemingly taken slightly by surprise, couldn’t reach it!
Dolberg overpowers Rice in midfield, then twists away to scamper forward. Mount gets back to help out his mucker but fouls Dolberg in the process, giving Denmark a freekick about 35 yards out, to the right. Bodies gather just outside the English box. where there is a foul on Christensen by Shaw as soon as the freekick is taken.
Vestergaard steps in to take the ball off Kane and trigger another Danish move downfield. It’s worked to Damsgaard near the left-hand corner of the English box. He tries to send a curler into the far corner of the goal. Pickford watches it sail a yard or two wide.
The first sign of a threat from Denmark, and England’s composure is jolted. First, Hojbjerg mugs Phillips just inside the English, then storms forward and lets fly from over 20 yards. Not good enough to trouble Pickford. But moments later the keeper makes a mistake, presenting the ball to Delaney about 20 yards out.
The Dane plays it quickly on to Dolberg, whose shot from the edge of the area is deflected wide. Pickford then clears the corner with a firm two-fisted punch.
